Pentecost – May 19, 2024 – 10:30 AM Worship Service

Join Evangelical Reformed UCC’s 10:30 AM Worship Service in our Main Sanctuary and online.

May 19 – Pentecost Sunday
Acts 2:1-21 | John 15:26-27; 16:4b-15

On Pentecost Sunday, Christians around the world celebrate the formation of the church when the Holy Spirit called people into community as Christ’s body and blessed them with universal understanding of languages. Some theologians describe Pentecost as the Church’s birthday. Others describe it as a “big bang” that brought the Church into being, for just as God’s Spirit came rushing into the world over the waters of creation, in Acts 2, God’s Spirit rushes into the world to gather and transform God’s people.

So where does that leave us? If we are willing to be amazed, Pentecost is one of the most awe-inspiring days in our Christian calendar. If we are willing to be transformed, it is an opportunity to be renewed in energy and faithfulness toward the work of God’s kingdom on earth when all people will experience true liberation and boundless love.

The Senior Choir will sing. We will receive the Strengthen Our Church Offering today and will welcome Nikao Washington through the Sacrament of Baptism. Nikao is the child of Karly Johnson and Chase Washington, the grandchild of Dwayne and Kathy Johnson, and the great-grandson of Patti Patterson.
