Pentecost Sunday

by | May 31, 2020 | Sermons

Greetings, Friends,

On this last weekend in May, I hope that you are staying healthy and experiencing God’s gifts of love, joy, and peace.  Today, we celebrate the day of Pentecost during our worship service.  Our Scripture is from Acts 2:12-21, and we will also sing a hymn, “Seek Ye First” (Presbyterian Hymnal #333).  Here are the lyrics:

1) Seek ye first the kingdom of God
And His righteousness;
And all these things shall be added unto you.
Allelu, Alleluia!

2) Ask, and it shall be given unto you;
Seek, and you shall find.
Knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
Allelu, Alleluia!

3) Seek ye first the kingdom of God
And His righteousness;
And all these things shall be added unto you.
Allelu, Alleluia!

We will also share the sacrament of communion together, and so you are encouraged to have a piece of bread and a cup of juice of the earth (or water) available so we may partake of the elements together.

May God’s grace and peace continue to embrace you during these uncertain times.

Blessings,
tom

From the Pastor’s Pen – March 2021

…during these 40 days of Lent, we may be wandering through a wilderness and encountering a different set of wild beasts. Invisible viruses are attempting to devour us; the herd of political animosity is growling around us…”

February Newsletter

Lent is not only that time in the church year in which we are summoned to examine ourselves and our everyday preoccupations in order to take stock of the direction of our lives, but it also that time where we are invited to follow Jesus along the journey that took Him to the cross.
