Weekly E-Pistle: Pentecost Sunday
In This Week's E-Pistle, You Will Find:
This Sunday's Service: "Pentecost Sunday"
In our lectionary reading for Pentecost Sunday, we'll hear the story of how the Spirit of God set the hearts and minds of the first disciples on fire. This very same Spirit is alive today, but how do we kindle its spark within ourselves and fan its flames in one another? Tune in to our Pentecost service this Sunday, as we celebrate the Holy Spirit, alive and aflame in our hearts.
Message: Pastor Sal. Music: Peter Black and Stan Greene.
Tune-in on Sunday at 10 AM via our Facebook page, YouTube channel, or here on our website.
Last Week's Service Video - "Ascension Sunday"
Last Sunday was "Ascension Sunday," which marked the end of the Easter Season. At our "Video Worship Service" we heard all about Jesus's ascension into heaven, and we also learned the path to our own personal ascensions. Pastor Sal uncovered the "12 Symptoms of Spiritual Awakening." We hope you will enjoy this inspiring message and uplifting music, when we celebrated Ascension Sunday. Message: Pastor Sal. Music: Peter Black and Pamela Chappell.

Good news for our return to church. With the help of generous church members, our new air filtration units from Surgically Clean Air have been installed in the Sanctuary, ready for in-person church services to begin. Along with new cleaning methods and safety-first service elements, our Church Council has worked hard to make services safer for our return.

Pentecost Sunday! Wear Red at Zoom Friendship Hall for Pentecost Screenshot!
This week is Pentecost Sunday, when it is the tradition in our church to wear red and pose for a group shot of the congretation.
