This Sunday, we'll be looking at Pentacost. Who is the Holy Spirit and what is His role in our lives today?

Gabe deGarmeaux will be preaching Acts 2:1-13

 

Through the liturgy, we'll celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit to us.

Reflect on the Bible passage that will send us out on mission together:

But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh... the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, or envying one another.
Galatians 5:16, 22-26

 

Some songs that we will be singing are:

O Love that Will Not Let me Go - A hymn written in 1882 by George Matheson. Matheson said that this hymn was born from deep mental suffering. He admitted to not being a great hymn writer but said that he wrote these words in 5 minutes. Today, we can cling to these words of assurance as the Holy Spirit reminds us that our salvation is safe with Christ.

Murdered Son - We have been saved only through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, to Him alone be the glory. God, knowing all of our sinfulness, still chose to send Christ to us, to be murdered and pay the price of our own sin. Amen!

O Church Arise - This song takes seriously our calling as Christians. We'll sing "put your armor on", "our call to war, to love the captive soul", "every eye and heart shall see [Christ]", and", and "so Spirit, come, put strength in every stride". These statements should be at the forefront of our minds as we're living our lives.

 

It is a beautiful gift from God that we are able to come together as a family and remind ourselves and each other of the gospel of Jesus Christ that has saved us and made us a family under the headship of Jesus. We are completely dependent on God for each of our Worship Gatherings, we pray together at 10am and all are welcome. We'll see you on Sunday morning.
