Sunday Worship Preview - May 31

Sunday, May 31 - (8:30 A.M. & 11:00 A.M. Traditional & 9:45 A.M. Contemporary)

Sermon - "Loud and Clear"

Features - Pentecost & Graduate Recognition

Scriptures - Acts 2:1-21 & John 15:26-27, 16:4b-15

Theme - This is the day of Pentecost, the fiftieth and last day of the Easter season. On Pentecost we remember the birth of the church and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the gathered community. We will focus our worship celebration on the role of the Holy Spirit in overcoming barriers to communication. A special emphasis is placed on Peter who received mercy after denying Jesus and is now boldly sharing his faith with the world. He sets an example for us to accept all into the church who desire Christ.
