Fifty days after Christ’s resurrection, the Holy Spirit descended on the disciples on the day of Pentecost.
In celebrating Pentecost, the church expresses its gratitude for the faithfulness of Christ in fulfilling his promise to send “another counselor” (John 14:16); celebrates the work of the Spirit in renewing all of creation; professes its confidence and security in knowing the Spirit’s power is available for its mission and ministry.
The traditional color for Pentecost is red, after the flames described in Acts 2:3.
Rev. David J. Hanna will deliver the sermon What Are We Doing? based on Act 2:1-13.
The Holy Spirit did not just give the disciples the ability to speak in different languages, the Spirit showed them that they couldn’t be the church without each other, without removing that which divided them.
Following the service, we invite you to join us for fellowship and refreshments in the Chalice Room, next to the Sanctuary.
We look forward to seeing you on Sunday!
