175th Anniversary of
THE SEASON OF THE CHURCH:
Beginning June 8th, 2014
Pentecost means "50 Days". The celebration of Pentecost is 50 days from Easter Sunday. If Easter is the celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, Pentecost is the celebration of the receiving of the Holy Spirit and the birth of the Christian church. On the day of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit came down upon the disciples, all those followers of Jesus had to figure out how they were going to live in faith with one another. It is an exciting time. Pentecost lasts until the beginning of Advent, all the way into November.
This season of Pentecost, every other week, we will explore the meaning of church by using our stained glass windows as inspiration. On the weeks we are not looking at our windows, we will hear about topics of interest to our congregation.
Worship -- 10 a.m. every Sunday

This Sunday - 07/27/14:
Persecution and Christianity around the World -
Jesus tells us those who are persecuted in His name are truly blessed. What constitutes 'persecution' is fraught with politics and human rights concerns. Laying claim to persecution when we are just having a hard time getting our voice heard in a free country can be very insulting to someone being forced out of their family homeland because of their beliefs. We will try to sort it all out on Sunday at 10am. In the meantime, here are a couple websites that track Christian persecution around the world:
May the Lord bless those who suffer for their faith.
May the freedom to choose what we believe become a reality for all peoples.
