This Sunday

May 20, 2018

It's a special day in the church year - Pentecost! 
In the Jewish tradition, Pentecost was called Shavu'ot, which began on the 50th day following Passover, when the first fruits of the harvest are presented to God. In the past 1,000 years it has also come to commemorate the giving of the Torah to Moses and is celebrated today as one of the three major festivals in Judaism.

The book of Acts says that the disciples and others were gathered for this festival when the Holy Spirit descended upon them. Filled with the Holy Spirit, Peter began to preach and teach about Jesus, and many of those gathered were moved to be baptized and join "The Way," the small group of Jesus' followers. Out of this moment, the movement we call the Church was born, and continues to be born.

We hope you will join us to celebrate!
