Candlelit Compline Third Thursdays of the month
The Day of Pentecost
Sunday, May 24th
The feast of Pentecost commemorates the release of the Holy Spirit. It is long thought of as the birthday of the church. Scripture records the first Pentecost as happening when people were gathered in one place (Acts 2:1). It is likely that they gathered outside, partly because there were far too many people to be contained indoors and partly because the Spirit, which in Hebrew is Ruah (or breath or wind of God), is most manifest outside.
On the Day of Pentecost in the church year, fifty days of Easter and ten days after the Ascension, the clergy wear RED vestments to signify the work of the Spirit. It is also a custom in many churches for the people in the congregation to wear RED on the Day of Pentecost as well. We wear RED to remind us of the fire of he Holy Spirit. Help us celebrate and remember to wear red!
All Gods Children Third Sundays at Noon
All God's Children is a special needs worship service. Our next service is June 18 at noon;

All God’s Children service is a lively combination of music, prayer, Bible stories, movement and Communion. The essential message of God's love and joy for all is presented in a simplified, meaningful way that fosters inclusion. Our doors are open for all to experience the love and acceptance Christianity. All are welcome, no need to register.

We invite you to worship!
