Microphone for Announcements
When you wish to make an announcement, please indicate your intention by raising your hand and someone will come to you with a microphone.
To work effectively, the microphone needs to be held very close...within an inch of your mouth.
We are very lucky to have the microphones available so that everyone can hear important announcements. Do not be bashful in using them!
Deacon’s Discretionary Fund
Every once in a while, someone is in need of a little financial support.
Years ago, the Deacons started a Discretionary Fund just for the purpose of helping others in need. Recently we have had several requests for assistance and have used this fund to help friends and neighbors in need.
So, for the month of June, there will be an envelope in your bulletin that says: Deacons Discretionary Fund.
If you would like to give to this fund, please just put your donation in the marked envelope and put it in the offering plate.
Any questions just see me.
Thank you…Laura Lienhard
A day of the new spirit, a day of new beginning.
Pentecost Sunday is the day of the Pentecost festival, a prominent feast in the calendar of Ancient Israel celebrating the giving of the Law on Sinai, and also later in the Christian liturgical year commemorating the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the remaining eleven disciples of Christ (Judas had hanged himself) after the Resurrection of Jesus.
It is also called Whit Sunday, Whitsun, or Whit, especially in the United Kingdom. It always falls on the seventh Sunday after Easter. Pentecost means "fiftieth day": it is celebrated 50 days from Easter Sunday (including Easter Sunday in the counting), hence its name.
It is a celebration of a new beginning for all whether it is for the celebration of the new church, a celebration of renewal of spirit within oneself and/or celebration of the Holy Spirit giving God’s wisdom to the disciples.
