|Please Join Us For Sunday Worship on YOUTUBEhttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHfZFOjObXH_bR8E-UG_gTASunday’s Sermon: The Problem With PentecostRev. Elizabeth HortonScripture Reading: Acts 2: 1-21
|Looking toward SundayA Message From Rev. Horton“…On the Day of Pentecost, suddenly there came a sound as of a rushing mighty wind. Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them gathered.” from Acts 2Dear Beloved Community, 1. Please wear red or orange to church this Pentecost Sunday! We celebrate, the Rush of a Mighty Wind, Tongues of Fire, the mysterious and wonderful gift of the Holy Spirit let loose in the world! The disciples remembered God’s word spoken through the prophets… “I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. “ When young folks speak prophetically and cast a new vision, chaos ensues.When senior citizens and the elderly decide to dream rather than settle into a rocking chair, chaos ensues. And…where we find chaos, we also find the Creative Power of the Living God. There is no separate Children’s Church this Sunday. We have special activities for children and all ages in this family friendly service. Find out the Problem with Pentecost as we worship and share communion together. Be prepared to expect the unexpected! 2. After worship join us briefly to Dedicate the Refurbished Parlor. We shout a grateful thanks to the Parlor Committee, Chair Mike Price, Rita Lohr, Lena Johnson, Bonita Hooper, Eddie Yates Lisa Nelson, Mark Smith, John Maze, and John Smith. Over the past year, this group has worked diligently to revitalize the Parlor in the Educational Building, which is a central space for many gatherings and ministries. The Parlor was part of the original 1962 building, refurbished in 1990, and now refurbished again in 2022. We will raise a glass, and Dedicate the Parlor for God’s glory and purposes for the next 30 years! Thanks!Elizabeth
