Pentecost, which we celebrate this Sunday, is a celebration of the day that the first Christians were filled with the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:1-4). Pentecost, which means "fiftieth," is celebrated 50 days after Easter and is the last day of the Easter season. It is also celebrated as the birthday of the Church! A Pentecost tradition is to wear red.
Whatever you choose to wear, come! FCC is a warm and welcoming place to worship, fellowship, and learn. Rev. Jim Warren will focus on Ezekiel 37:1-14 in his sermon, "Can These Bones Live?"
The prophet Ezekiel sees a valley filled with very dry bones, and God asks him, "Can these bones live?" God can make that which seems dead come to life again. Where do we need to have the dry bones in our lives become alive?
You won't want to miss the 9:00 service, as a very lively gift of music is being prepared for you! As always, the also-lively One and All band will be ready to go at 10:15 in Fellowship Hall. Come for some great worship, excellent music, and an inspirational sermon message and prayer stations. A satisfying spread of breakfast foods will be available for all who attend! It takes place each week in Fellowship Hall.
Gifts for Another Table:
The food pantries are always most appreciative of receiving these items. Needed this month for St. Vincent de Paul are: canned fruits & vegetables, cereal, soup, crackers, cookies, Hamburger Helper, and instant mashed potatoes.
