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.) 

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 re-demption you have promised through Jesus Christ our Lord. 

C: Amen.

All: Almighty God, you have knit your people together in one communion in the mystical body of your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Grant us grace to follow your blessed saints in lives of faith and commitment, and to know the inexpressible joys you have prepared for those who love you, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Hymn # 423 “Shall We Gather at the River” 

L: Together with the whole church, we confess our faith: 

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, 

maker of heaven and earth, 

of all that is, seen and unseen. 

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, 

the only Son of God, 

eternally begotten of the Father, 

God from God, Light from Light, 

true God from true God, begotten, not made, 

of one Being with the Father; 

through him all things were made. 

For us and for our salvation 

he came down from heaven, 

was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary 

and became truly human. 

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; 

he suffered death and was buried. 

On the third day he rose again 

in accordance with the scriptures; 

he ascended into heaven 

and is seated at the right hand of the Father. 

He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end. 

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, 

who proceeds from the Father and the Son,* 

who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. 

We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic church. 

We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. 

We look for the resurrection of the dead, 

and the life of the world to come. Amen. 


The Prayers 

L: . . . Hear us, O God 

C: Your mercy is great. 


Sharing of the Peace 

L: The peace of Christ be with you always. 

C: And also with you! 

L: You may share the peace with one another. 



Offering Hymn # 697 “Just a Closer Walk with Thee” 

Please stand as the last verse is sung and the offering is brought forward. 

L: Let us pray. 

All: God of all goodness, generations have turned to you, gathered around your table, and shared your abundant blessings. Number us among them that, as we gather these gifts from your abundance, and give thanks for your rich blessings, we may feast upon your very self and care for all that you have made, through Jesus Christ, our Sovereign and Servant. Amen. 


P: It is indeed right, our duty and our joy, that we should at all times and in all places give thanks and praise. . . We praise your name and join their unending hymn: 


Eucharistic Prayer 

P: Holy God, holy and mighty, holy and immortal: 

you we praise and glorify, you we worship and adore. 

You formed the earth from chaos; you encircled the globe with air; 

you created fire for warmth and light; you nourish the lands with water. 

You molded us in your image, and with mercy higher than the mountains, with grace deeper than the seas, 

you blessed the Israelites and cherished them as your own. 

That also we, estranged and dying, might be adopted to live in your Spirit, you called to us through the life and death of Jesus. 

In the night in which he was betrayed, 

our Lord Jesus took bread, and gave thanks; 

broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying: 

Take and eat; this is my body, given for you. 

Do this for the remembrance of me. 

Again, after supper, he took the cup, gave thanks, 

and gave it for all to drink, saying: 

This cup is the new covenant in my blood, 

shed for you and for all people for the forgiveness of sin. 

Do this for the remembrance of me. 

Together as the body of Christ, 

we proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes: 

Christ has died. 

Christ is risen. 

Christ will come again. 

P: We give you thanks, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, for this blessing of for-giveness and new life, and we ask, Lord… 

P: Remember us in your kingdom and teach us to pray… 

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 us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.
