On the Day of Pentecost the Holy Spirit was poured out on the Apostles and members of the nascent Church in fulfillment of the promise the Father had made to his people generations earlier.
With that outpouring of the Spirit's presence, in fulfillment of Jesus' instruction, the dwelling place of God moved from the Temple in Jerusalem to the heart of each individual believer, making us all the temple of God. Many call this day, "the birthday of the Church."
What better way is there to celebrate a birthday than with a party? We will have a cookout after our 10a liturgy. Bring a side-dish to share and the Rwandan Missions Trip team will provide burgers and hotdogs for a donation if you can make one. This is the only fundraising event for this trip this year, so please plan to give generously if you are able.
