SUNDAY SCHOOL FOR OUR KIDS CLOSES THIS SUNDAY JUNE 2

To our parents, thank you for supporting the program by encouraging your kids to attend the class.  Remember to pick up the Sunday News on the Kids Table so the kids can have a coloring project in church and the parents get a teaching message.

PENTECOST SUNDAY IS NEXT SUNDAY - JUNE 9 - WEAR RED!

The term means "the fiftieth day." It is used in both the OT and the NT. In the OT it refers to a feast of seven weeks known as the Feast of Weeks. It was apparently an agricultural event that focused on the harvesting of first fruits. Josephus referred to Pentecost as the fiftieth day after the first day of Passover. The term is used in the NT to refer to the coming of the Spirit on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:1), shortly after Jesus' death, resurrection, and ascension. Christians came to understand the meaning of Pentecost in terms of the gift of the Spirit. The Pentecost event was the fulfillment of a promise which Jesus gave concerning the return of the Holy Spirit. The liturgical color for the day of Pentecost is RED. So show your spirit by wearing RED.  To make the day even more important, on June 9, at the 10:30 service we will celebrate the sacrament of Holy Baptism.
