World Communion Sunday
Around the globe, countless gifted and qualified people face financial obstacles that hinder them from preparing for the vocation God has given them, especially youth and young adults. For ethnic students who will be the first generation in their families to attend college, or for those people of color who haven’t historically had access to resources that make higher education possible, the road toward education has often been unwieldy.
What would it look like if the church today imitated Jesus’ affirmation of the full dignity and God-given potential of all women and men—especially those who’ve historically been assigned to the world’s margins? On World Communion Sunday your giving helps to provide scholarships for national and international graduate students whom God has gifted to learn and to serve.
And at Zion UMC you will experience the special Communion with a world's diverse breads that will be made by the people of Zion UMC.
All Saints Sunday
Many churches celebrate All Saints Day with services of remembrance of saints. It is seldom that Protestants are gathered on November 1, so many churches observe All Saints Sunday each year on the Sunday following November 1. It is a day to remember the saints, "saints" by the New Testament meaning of "all Christian people of every time and place." It is a day to celebrate the communion of saints as we remember those who have died, both in our local congregations and throughout the Church universal.
At Zion UMC in Hampshire IL, people will remember the faithful servants of the congregation who had gone before by lighting candles and sharing their pictures during Sunday morning worship service. We will call their names and share memories that they left in our hearts.
Come and join us to remember the great legacy that our ancestors and friends in faith has given us.
