As the church year comes to a close this Sunday, we give thanks and remember those who have died during this past year and beyond. Join us in worship at Second Congregational Church, UCC, at 10 o’clock this Sunday morning, as the Handbell Choir calls us to worship with “Song of Remembrance,” by Arnold Sherman. Following a Time for the Children in All of Us, children up through grade 5 are dismissed for Godly Play and the Middle- and High-school Class meets. Nursery care is provided. The Chancel Choir’s anthem is “Autumn Carol” by Schultz-Widmar, and they will be joined by handbells. Rev. Mary Lee-Clark’s sermon is entitled, “Connected in Grief,” and the Service of Memory and Hope follows. Names of those members and loved ones who have died are read as candles are lit, and there is an opportunity to come forward and light a candle in memory of loved ones not already named. The ends with an anthem by the Chancel Choir entitled, “How Do I Love Thee?” based on the poem by Elizabeth Barret Browning.
