One of the ancient traditions of our Christian faith is to set aside one Sunday each year to remember and honor those who have died in the faith during the past year. This tradition is named “Totenfest”, meaning “Festival of the Dead”. On Sunday, November 6 during morning worship we will remember our members who have passed on during this past year. We will remember them with candles, prayer, scripture, and song.
