This is All Saints’ newsletter for May 2012.
Connector Cards: How can we help you be more connected? To God—in worship and through God’s ministries here? To other people of this congregation? That’s what the white cards in each pew are for—you sharing how we can help you be more connected. Feel free to complete a card and either drop it in the offering plate or hand it to Pastor Clark after worship. Peace & God’s blessings.

Memorial Day in 2012 is on Monday, the 28th of May.
Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the fallen Union soldiers of the Civil War. By the 20th century Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died in all wars. Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. By the early 20th century, Memorial Day was an occasion for more general expressions of memory, as people visited the graves of their deceased relatives, whether they had served in the military or not. Thank you to all the military personnel who fight to keep us safe, and please pray for all those who have died to sustain our country’s freedom.
