All Saints' Service--Updated

We're meeting in the pretty chapel today, since it's All Saints' Sunday and we're doing two baptisms! It'll be our first baptismal service--so appropriate on All Saints'.

Rejoice with us!

Almighty and merciful God, it is only by your gift that your faithful people offer you true and laudable service: Grant that we may run without stumbling to obtain your heavenly promises; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.


Our first baptismal service was lovely. Both families brought a lot of extended family with them, and with 5 of our regulars missing, we had 63 people there! (Our regular attendance has been running right at 40 adults and children.) It was glorious to worship together in that lovely space.

We were surprised to see how much room 63 people took up--it made us realize that the chapel must only seat around 160 people. We were hoping that place could be our home for quite a few years, but...God only knows....!
