pentecost

8 a.m. and 10 a.m.

June 9th marks the celebration of Pentecost. It commemorates the day when the Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles 50 days after the Easter resurrection of Christ. It is considered the “birthday of the church” because it was the event in which the spreading of the Good News of Jesus Christ began in earnest on a large scale. As we continue the tradition of sharing the Gospel, our worship includes a reading of Scripture in multiple languages simultaneously as a way to give a taste of what the apostles experienced on that first Pentecost. Red is the liturgical color for this special festival day to symbolize the fire of the Holy Spirit, so feel free to wear something red.
