Although we can’t see it, we can see signs of the wind – branches waving, sailboats cruising, grasses swaying. In the same way the Holy Spirit touches us and inspires, us to become better disciples. On this day, we recall the day the Holy Spirit descended on the apostles and their friends gathered for Pentecost – the day the church was born.
Today’s service includes Holy Communion.
Our services are being held with in-person attendance at 10 a.m. Sunday morning. Today’s service is provided below in its entirety in video format.
Our Scripture Reading is Acts 2:1-12. This reading describes the “birth” of the church, the time when the Holy Spirit filled the apostles.
Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is the one true Church whose faith we support with our prayers, our presence, our giving, our witness and our service.
Our offering is given to the mission and ministry of MHUMC. Remember our gifts come from us, as the people of God, for the work of God, to the Glory of God in the world.
I invite you to give generously, as we worship God through sharing our gifts, tithes, and offerings.
The message today from Rev. Dr. Linda Holbrook is “Pentecost: Catching the Wind.”
