This Sunday, Christians across the world will celebrate Pentecost. In fact, not all Christians recognize this holiday (holy day). But it is generally honored in mainline churches and in Pentecostal and Charismatic churches. Pentecost is not as well-known or as popular as the Christmas and Easter, though it commemorates a watershed event in Christian history. In many ways, Pentecost is the birthday of the church, commemorating the coming of the Holy Spirit to inspire the first generation of the followers of Christ.
As we celebrate this Sunday, we will have two places in the service for our Choirs to lead us in worship. The Chancel Choir will be singing for us during communion and the Congolese Style Choir will be leading our final Song of Commitment. We encourage you to take these times to reflect on the work of the Holy Spirit as you listen.
