Pentecost derives its name from the Jewish festival celebrating the harvest and the giving of the law on Mount Sinai fifty days after Passover. Fifty days after Easter, we celebrate the Holy Spirit as God’s presence within and among us. In Acts the Spirit arrives in rushing wind and flame, bringing God’s presence to all people. Paul reminds us that though we each have different capacities, we are unified in the Spirit that equips us with these gifts. Jesus breathes the Holy Spirit on his disciples, empowering them to forgive sin. We celebrate that we too are given the breath of the Holy Spirit and sent out to proclaim God’s redeeming love to all the world. PLEASE WEAR RED FOR WORSHIP ON PENTECOST SUNDAY!
Back by popular demand, we will worship outdoors (weather permitting) on the following Sundays: June 4, July 2, and August 6th, at 10 am in the lower parking lot, under the shade. Bring your lawn chair, sunscreen, and your favorite brunch foods for fellowship after worship. We will notify the congregation by email on Saturday afternoon if forecasted bad weather moves our worship indoors. Be on the lookout soon for an online signup to help set up and clean up worship items!
Last session on June 1st before summer break! We will resume on August 31st. The Men's Bible Study is held via Zoom every Thursday morning at 8 am. The focus of this men's Bible Study will be to study the Gospel reading designated by the Common Lectionary for the upcoming Sunday. Please contact John Hess (firstname.lastname@example.org)or Bill King (email@example.com) for more information.
Note: We will be meeting through the summer! We gather in the church Fellowship Hall TV Lounge from 10:00 to 11:00 am on Thursdays. Our procedure is to watch a half-hour video lecture with ensuing discussion. Dr. Mark Berkson of Hamline University (Methodist, St. Paul, MN) provides expert lectures and a study guide concerning “Death, Dying and the Afterlife: Lessons from World Cultures”. What might seem to be a grim topic is treated with appropriate gentle humor and wisdom. Class members are excited about it! The first eight lectures assess key definitions, concepts and values while covering topics ranging from “Death’s Place in Our Lives” to “American Death Rituals.” The next 12 lectures range worldwide from Christianity to Judaism, Islam and other world religions and related cultures. It is an exciting topic dealing with a fundamental reality of life we try to ignore. Join us! Contact Phil Jordan with questions.
