Weekly Update for June 1, 2017



Weekly Update

This Sunday: Wear Red for Pentecost!

Our world is so divided. Every era has it’s challenges, but it’s tempting to think we’re more divided now than ever.

It’s nothing new, though… There’s an ancient myth in the Old Testament that speaks to a previous era’s division: the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11:1-9. But it’s a story that God came back to set straight!

This Sunday is Pentecost, a holiday that is second only to Easter and Christmas. On it we celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit– a moment that not only created the Church and empowered God’s followers for mission, but also united them in a way that upended the division of the world. (You can read the story in Acts 2)

I’m thinking this world needs Pentecost right now!

Join us for worship this Sunday to say to the world “we are one in God.” We’re going to try something new this year… wear red to show our unity and to make our sanctuary look like “tongues of fire” that came down on the original Pentecost!

Wonderful Wednesday/Third Service Schedule

Wonderful Wednesday and Third Service will not be meeting on June 7th. We will resume meeting the following Wednesday (June 14th) at our regular time of 6pm in Friendship Place.

Special Music for Summer

Do you play an instrument or sing? Want to use it to help our worship be beautiful?

This summer, while the Chancel Choir is on summer break, our Music Director Kylie Mick is arranging for special music to do exactly that– and she needs your help! So far a little over half the weeks are filled but there’s plenty of room remaining. Contact Kylie on Sunday morning or let us know in the office if you’re interested!
