INVITE SOMEONE to join you this Sunday to hear Pastor Brian give the final message in our Eastertide series, A Revelation: Loving Jesus and the Church titled "Everyday Work" based on Revelation 22:12-14, 16-17 & 20-21.

Pastor Brian's Liturgics Corner

This Sunday is Ascension Sunday. Ascension Day is officially the Thursday before the last Sunday of Eastertide. Many churches, including Scottsville UMC observe it as the 7th Sunday of Easter. This Sunday is an anticipation of next Sunday, when, on the Day of Pentecost, we hear of the company of Jesus' followers speaking one message, understood in every tongue, and, in the end, three thousand believe.

The ascension first affirms that what God begins, God completes. The same Word of God that came from God to dwell among us returns to God. Ultimately, this very Jesus "who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same way as you saw him go" (Acts 1:11). That is to say, God is dependable.

Next week is Pentecost Sunday! Be sure to wear read as we celebrate the birth of the church!
