Flaming Winds of Change (Sunday, 27 May 2012)

Thanks for checking out the Deer Creek Charge! This Sunday will be extra special–you won’t want to miss this! We are celebrating “Pentecost”–the birthday of the Church (the whole church)…when God sent the Holy Spirit to live and work in and through us after Jesus ascended into heaven. There are balloons and streamers everywhere! We will sing “Happy Birthday” to the Church too! This is a great day of multi-sensory worship. We will also be receiving several new members into our congregation. You won’t want to miss this day!

Our Scripture passage for the day is Acts 2:1-21. There will be a multilingual surprise during the Scripture reading too. Come one, come all…you are invited to join us! (Don’t forget to check out the announcements below).

Announcements:

Bonnie’s LAST Sermon at the Deer Creek Charge will be NEXT SUNDAY. A potluck luncheon will be held after worship at Mt. Tabor (about 12 noon) for both churches.  Deer Creek is bringing desserts.

I would love to have my church family in attendance! ~Bonnie  NOTE: Sign-up is available—some folks need help w/ driving @night.

Worship Fun Fact! Today is Pentecost, the 50th and last day of the Easter Season. This is a celebration of when the universal Church received the gift of the Holly Spirit. It is represented by the color red, doves, flames of fire, a ship, or a rainbow. This is one of the most appropriate days for baptisms, confirmations, new member reception and congregational reaffirmation of the Baptismal Covenant.
