Day of Pentecost to be Celebrated with Holy Communion - June 4 Fifty days after the Resurrection, the followers of Jesus were gathered in a Jerusalem house when they experienced a dramatic movement of God's Spirit. With the sound of a mighty wind, with tongues of flame, and with the ability to transcend differences in language and culture, the Spirit of God empowered those disciples to continue the great movement Jesus began in the towns and villages of Galilee. (Acts 2) On June 4, we will remember this birth of the Church as we gather in the presence of Christ around his table of Holy Communion.
Children's Fishing Trip - June 10 Go fish! It's our Children's Fishing Trip to Laurel Ridge. We'll leave the church at 11:00. Bring a bag lunch to eat on the mountain. The swimming area will also be open for those wanting to cool off in the lake. We'll also take a walk around the summer camp, especially for the children who are thinking about their first overnight experience at Laurel Ridge. For an early supper, we'll share a hot dog roast by the lake and hope to be back at the church by 7:30. Please sign up in the foyer.
