Remembrance of All Saints
(Candles are lit for each of the members of St. Andrew who have died this year. Another candle is lit for the others whom the congregation wishes to remember in prayer. The bell is rung.)
P: Let us pray:
God of resurrection and of life, in each generation you gather a people and call them your own. We give thanks for the saints who have gone before us, whom we have known and loved, whose lives in your service are now complete. We remember especially those most dear to us, whom we name before you now in our hearts. Help us to entrust them to your care. Strengthen us, who walk by faith and not by sight, to wait in hope for the redemption you have promised through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Hymn # 628 “Jerusalem, My Happy Home”
L: Together with the whole congregation, we confess our faith:
All: I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord,
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried; He descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again.
He ascended into heaven,
He is seated at the right hand of the Father,
And he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive
