From The Worship Sourcebook
Ten days after the ascension of Christ and fifty days after his resurrection, the Holy Spirit descended on the disciples on the day of Pentecost. In the first century, Pentecost was already an established Jewish festival also known as the Feast of Weeks, which drew people from many nations back to Jerusalem (Lev. 23:15-21; Deut. 16:16). Pentecost symbolizes a new beginning.
“In celebrating Pentecost, the church: expresses gratitude for Christ fulfilling his promise to send “another counselor” (John 14:16), celebrates the work of the Spirit in renewing all of creation, professes confidence in the Spirit’s power for its mission, and grows in awareness of its calling to reach the world with the gospel.”

This Sunday is our GEMS Girls’ Club Sunday. Throughout this GEMS season we have been learning what it means to receive God’s love! God asks us to accept His invitation – He asks us to open our hearts to His personal, pursuing love. And when we do, the overflow continues. His all-encompassing love flows through us and into others.
Join us this Sunday, May 7, at our 10:30 service. We’d love to have you!
