Join us as we celebrate the feast of Pentecost, often described as the “Birthday of the Church”. We’ll commemorate the Holy Spirit’s dramatic appearance to the Apostles and other followers of Jesus as tongues of fire, imparting on them the ability to speak in many languages and so making the Good News accessible to many more people out in the world.
SUNDAY WORSHIP SCHEDULE
Two worship service times are offered on Pentecost Sunday, June 4th at 8:00 and 10:30 AM.
Bring out your inner Holy Spirit by wearing colors reminiscent of fire – red, orange and/or yellow!
Read more about the Pentecost story in Acts 2:1-31 (NRSV) or on the Wikipedia Pentecost page.
SPECIAL EVENTS FOR CHIDREN
The morning will begin with Pastor Salying‘s Super Awesome Fun Chapel with Surprisingly Serious Content at the back of Cowans Hall at 9:30 AM.
The children will rehearse their readings and music to be sung for the 10:30 Worship Service. After chapel and coffee hour, children will proceed to the church and remain there through the First Reading. Thereafter, they will then be excused to complete a prayer project in the Education Building. They will return again before the Prayers of the People to read the prayers they’ve written and sing the communion anthem. There they will remain with family until the end of the service.
For added convenience, nursery care will be offered in the back of the church with Tina.
