Wear RED for Pentecost this Sunday, May 28
Scripture John 20:19-23
Sermon Sometimes the Spirit Speaks Softly
On Pentecost we celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit—“God With Us, Here and Now.” The most familiar Pentecost story is found in Acts of the Apostles, chapter 2, when the Spirit descended on waiting disciples with fire and wind fifty days (“Pentecost”) after Easter. A lesser-known story is found here in John, when the Spirit is given quietly, calmly, by the breath of Jesus. That breath echoes Genesis 2 when God breathes life into the human being. Both stories have something profound to say about the gentle, fierce power of the Holy Spirit. On Sunday we’ll reflect on which experience is similar to yours!
Memorial Day Observance As is our tradition, at the close of worship we honor those who have given the last full measure of devotion in the service of our country. First Lieutenant Jay Packer, USMC, one of our new members, will present a memorial wreath, followed by prayer and the singing of My Country, ‘Tis of Thee.
To worship online live Sundays at 9:00 and 10:45 or recorded: go to www.Christ-Pres.Church

Coffee service is available after both Sunday services.
