November 4 & 11, 2012 Christ at the Center

November 4 Mission Sunday Dear Friends: This year, the Mission Celebration Sunday will convey through the theme “Sacred Roads” the opportunity for each of you to think about the roads you have walked that have taught you of God’s World. I hope you will be inspired to embrace what First Church offers to our members in 2013. There is no doubt that we are able to partner with churches in Brazil, Haiti, Jamaica, Kenya, Honduras and New Orleans and, hopefully, soon with Cuba, because of the incredible commitment this church has for mission and the generosity of our members. Our schedule for Mission Sunday calls for Worship Services at 9:00 and 11:15 am 10:15 am Adult Sunday School Classes in Fifield Hall and 10:15 am Elementary Sunday School Classes. After the 11:15 am Service, there will be a wonderful lunch and entertainment in Fifield Hall as our way to say thanks to each of you for your love and support for mission. Come and join us this Sunday for a fabulous Mission Sunday. Take advantage of “God’s Gift Shop” and honor special people with your gift. Visit the Shop outside Fifield Hall and remind those you honor the real meaning of Christmas. God bless you for your commitment to mission. Walk with us through Sacred Roads, and go on a mission trip in 2013 to learn, share, and be involved in the mission of this great church as you witness to the world in word and deed. The world is full of surprises you won’t want to miss!

Faithfully, Rose Emily Bermudez Doug Orr

November 11 “THAT USED TO BE US” Throughout this church year, we are marking a number of “Festival Sundays” to help enhance the strength of our Nov. 11 - George Wirth w orship services to preach and to celebrate our liturgical life together as a congregation. So far we have observed Reformation Sunday on October 28, and on November 11 we will observe “All Saints Sunday”, that day set aside in the worship calendar to remember the saints and loved ones who have gone before us in our journey of faith. The sermon will be entitled “That Used To Be Us”, the texts are taken from Deuteronomy 6 and Hebrews 12, and we will be lifting up all the names of those persons from our church family who have died and joined the church triumphant during the past year (since November 2011).Our choir will also sing a special anthem “in memorium” at the conclusion of the worship service. As we thank the Lord for each and every one of those “saints” who have gone on before us into eternal life with the Lord, I hope you will join us for this Festival Sunday. And please, invite a friend or family member to come on along as well. “O blest communion, fellowship divine, We feebly struggle, they in glory shine; Yet all are one in Thee, for all are Thine; Alleluia! Alleluia!”

Faithfully Yours,

George B. Wirth

S U N DAY S

Sunday, December 2, 2012 5:00-7:00 pm in Fifield Hall

It’s time to deck the halls at FPC’s 20th Annual Hanging of the Greens! We will make ornaments for the Christmas tree, start the season with dinner to savor, carols to sing, and fellowship to enjoy.

A l l S a i n ts ’ S u n day All Saints’ Sunday November 11th is a Festival Sunday in the life of our church. It is called All Saints’ Day. Festival Sundays are days on the church calendar to which we pay special attention such as Epiphany Sunday, Reformation Sunday, and Pentecost. We will celebrate All Saints’ Day within our 9 and 11:15 AM worship services by commemorating the lives of those who have died in the last year. We will name the names of church members who have passed on, as well as recognizing other deaths that have touched our lives in this community of faith. Candles will be lit in honor of these saints. There will be a special anthem entitled ‘The Souls of the Righteous.’ What is All Saints’ Day? The Christian church in the first cen-

turies AD honored the lives of those who were martyred, killed, because of their faith. These martyr days became so abundant that they were merged into a day in November in which all of the dead, called saints, were honored and remembered. In a side note, Halloween was called All Hallow’s Eve in the church tradition, and was a way for Christians to mock the power of evil in preparation for All Saints’ Day. In our Presbyterian and reformed tradition, we consider all of God’s children to be the saints. Thus, we celebrate the lives of all of who have died. We also celebrate the unity that we as today’s Christians share with those who have gone on before us. We are one - the communion of saints - in all times and places. Join us in remembrance and commemoration on November 11th.

6th-12th graders will be “Hanging Out at the Greens.” The youth will have dinner and enjoy a Christmas movie in B111. Please register online at www.firstpresatl.org/events or outside Fifield Hall after Sunday School.
