Pentecost: Birthday of the Church


Please join us for worship on Sunday, June 9, as we celebrate the Festival of Pentecost, the birthday of the church.

On the first Pentecost, the eleven apostles were gathered in Jerusalem for a harvest festival. There, they received an outpouring of the Holy Spirit in the form of tongues of fire and they began speaking in languages other than their own. On that day, they became human instruments of the Holy Spirit, courageous proclaimers of the Gospel, calling and gathering believers into the Church of Christ. This is the day of Pentecost, the birthday of the Church. Today, we pray for the continued outpouring of the Spirit on people of every nation and language.

We invite you to wear something red as a reminder of the tongues of fire and the blood of Jesus and the martyrs. Look for strips of red cloth tied to our fence as a symbol of Pentecost. Then, stay after the service to enjoy a special birthday cake during fellowship hour.
