Communion of Saints

On All Saints’ Sunday, November 5, we lift up especially the lives of those children of God who have died in the past year, giving thanks for their lives and faith. We remember their lives and those of other faithful believers who have been examples of what we are called to be and do. During a time of remembrance we will have an opportunity to light a candle in memory of or in honor of a saint who has had an impact on our lives.

Donor Sabbath Day

Nationally celebrated on Sunday, November 12, please discuss your feelings about organ and tissue donation with your family at your upcoming Thanksgiving festivities. How do we respond to the blessings God has bestowed on us? How do we deal responsibly with the gifts God has given us? With these thoughts, consider giving so others may live. Join other FPC families who have generously given the Give the Gift of Life through organ and tissue donation. Please add ‘Donor Y’ to your driver’s license or register online at www.Iowa.Donor.Registry.org.
