The Day of Pentecost
Sunday, June 9, 2019
Worship at 8:00am & 9:30am
A Word from Fr. Jim: Spirit
The Holy Spirit is full of wondrous surprises.The Day of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit fell mightily upon the disciples, had probably began as most other days. You know what I mean: get up, get dressed, and head out to greet the day. Unless you have special plans, you have a general idea what lies ahead over the coming hours. What we can never be certain of, however, is what God might have in store for us at any given moment. Is there anything we can do to be prepared? Live faithfully, live boldly, and trust that what Jesus has promised will come to pass.
And Speaking of the Holy Spirit . . .

At the 9:30am service we will celebrate four (yes, four!) baptisms.

It will be a glorious time of worship, and don't forget to wear something red.
