Online Worship Dates Revised

For the health and safety of our community of faith, the church council has made the decision to offer online worship temporarily instead of gathering physically on Sunday mornings in the church building. At this time, worship will be offered online through June 30th. The council will continue to monitor the situation and re-evaluate as is prudent.

Day of Pentecost

The Gospel for this Sunday:

John 20:19-23

Unified in the Spirit

Pentecost derives its name from the Jewish festival celebrating the harvest and the giving of the law on Mount Sinai fifty days after Passover. Fifty days after Easter, we celebrate the Holy Spirit as God’s presence within and among us. In Acts the Spirit arrives in rushing wind and flame, bringing God’s presence to all people. Paul reminds us that though we each have different capacities, we are unified in the Spirit that equips us with these gifts. Jesus breathes the Holy Spirit on his disciples, empowering them to forgive sin. We celebrate that we too are given the breath of the Holy Spirit and sent out to proclaim God’s redeeming love to all the world.

personal-care-kit

Thanks to everyone who donated towards Personal Care Kits at the first ever Lake Edge drive-through collection on May 16. It was a socially distanced good time for members of the Peace and Justice Commission along with Joan Martin, who has spearheaded this project for many years. We collected 11 towels, 24 tooth brushes, 23 nail clippers, 29 combs, 106 bars of soap, and a generous check donation. That is fantastic! As we struggle with and through the pandemic, God’s blessings continue. Love Wins.
