CALL TO WORSHIP
HYMN #711 For All The Saints
Faithful Redeemer, you are the beginning and ending of all things. You promise to wipe away every tear, that death and mourning will be no more. You make your home among us, and abide with us as our God. Teach us to live as the saints you call us to be, that we may truly be your people, living and doing your will, in the name of Jesus, who is the Christ. Remind us to imitate the best of those who have gone before us and who pointed us toward faith in you. Amen.
