Heritage Sunday – November 5




On November 5th at 10:00am the First United Methodist Church of Westfield will celebrate Heritage Sunday with a combined worship service. I would like to personally extend an invitation to you and your loved ones as we prepare to gather to remember those who have “run their race” and to honor those among us who are still “running.”

Last year, I had the distinct blessing of participating in this congregation’s tradition of Heritage Sunday. It was a moving and meaningful service. I can still remember walking into our beautiful sanctuary last November seeing the names and the photographs of those whose memory we hold near to our hearts.

Charles Wesley once wrote, “Glory to God, and praise and love be ever, ever given, by saints below and saints above, the church in earth and heaven.” M

y sermon on Heritage Sunday will be focusing on John’s vision in Revelation 7:9-17. This beautiful and meaningful service will conclude with the sacrament of Holy Communion. Immediately following the 10am service will be a covered dish lunch (desserts & beverages provided) in the Fellowship Hall. I would love your presence. In the meantime, as always the First United Methodist Church will continue to life you in our thoughts and prayers.
