Pentecost Sunday – May 24th

This coming Sunday, 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.

THREE SERVICES

Sunday, May 24 at 8:00 am, 10:30 am & 5:30 pm

REMEMBER TO…

Bring out your inner Holy Spirit by wearing colors reminiscent of fire – red, orange and/or yellow!

Pentecost is the coming of the Holy Spirit to the disciples in Jerusalem. It takes place 50 days after Easter. Considered the beginning of the Christian Church, today many regard Pentecost as the Church’s birthday.
