Day of Pentecost
Sunday, June 09, 2019
Help us celebrate the gifts of the Holy Spirit!
Join us as we celebrate the day of our namesake the Holy Spirit!
Foreign language speakers needed: On Pentecost, Holy Spirit has the custom of reading the lesson from Acts simultaneously in as many languages as possible. The sound of many languages recalls for us the experience of the disciples and the crowd on that first Pentecost following the Resurrection. We invite anyone who knows a language other than English to read the lesson in that language at the 10:15 a.m. service on Sunday, June 9. Even if you are a bit shy or not overly confident of your pronunciation, you can add your voice to the mix! If you are interested in participating, please contact Rev. Terri at the church office, 542-2167, or .
Translations of the Bible text (Acts of the Apostles, Chapter 2, verses 1-21) in many languages are available at http://bibledatabase.net.
Please wear something red on that day as a sign that we are all touched by the flame of the Holy Spirit.
We also celebrate following the 10:15 a.m. service with our Pentecost Coffee Hour of strawberries and ice cream in the church courtyard (weather permitting). Please join us. Thank you for helping us celebrate this festival of the Holy Spirit!
Wear red for Pentecost, June 9, both services.
