The Feast of Pentecost is Sunday, May 15. Pentecost is a time to celebrate the birth of the Church and our part in serving God’s mission in the world. We will baptize children at both the eight and ten o’clock service, welcoming them into the Body of Christ and promising to help raise them in the Christian life and faith.
We will also have red cards in the pews; you are invited to write on your card a commitment to God’s mission in the world for the coming year. Perhaps you will bring food for the food shelf once a month, visit a neighbor who is grieving, or talk with a child about what it means to work for the betterment of the world; we each live into God’s mission in our own unique way with our own unique gifts. We will place our cards in the offering plates, giving our intentions to God during our worship.
Finally, please wear red to church—Pentecost is the day when the Holy Spirit descends as flame, inspiring us to spread the fire of God’s love for others!
