Scripture text: John 14:16-17, I Kings 19:4-8
Message: “Holy Spirit, the Comforter” (Pastor Jae is preaching)
This weekend we celebrate Pentecost: the birthday of the church. This special day in Scripture (Acts chapter 2) highlights the work and ministry of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit is God’s presence among us, and one of the roles that the Spirit adds to our lives is called Advocate (or Counselor/Comforter). There is mystery surrounding the person and work of the Holy Spirit. We tend to avoid what we haven’t experienced. Or hold back when we’re not sure about something. Sometimes we’re afraid to open ourselves fully to all God wants to make available to us in this spiritual journey. But I hope you can reach out to the gift of God’s Spirit and embrace what God is offering to you this weekend.
I invite you to join worship on Sunday at one of the times listed above.
This Saturday, May 30 from 9:00 to noon, the Trustees are inviting volunteers to help spread mulch around the church gardens. Please reply to this email if you want to help out. (Shane Gross, chair of Trustees is coordinating this effort.) Volunteers can bring wheelbarrows and shovels; face masks suggested.
Update on the Friendly Thrift Store at the Center: the Thrift Store is preparing to open sometime in early July. Their board is going through a change in managers. A new part-time manager will be hired (20-25 hours/week) in June; applications are being accepted. Many are asking about when they can bring clothing donations, but the process to receive donations is going to change due to new COVID19 guidelines. Please be patient until an outside receptacle can be setup and secured. All clothing will be quarantined 72 hours before it can be brought inside and processed.
