Pentecost is the culmination of Easter’s 50 days. At Pentecost we celebrate the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. It is the Spirit of Christ who breathes new life into the church, and provides us with energy for life, faith, and ministry. At every celebration of Holy Communion, we pray that the Holy Spirit will make the bread and wine on the table to be the Body and Blood of Christ and to make us, the gathered assembly, to be Christ’s body in the world. It is the Spirit who makes God present and alive.
What a glorious day for the whole church to come together! We will celebrate Pentecost in one service at 10:00 a.m. followed by a special reception. Baptisms will be celebrated, as well as Confirmation (Affirmation of Baptism).
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful people, and kindle in us the fire of love.
