The Festival of the Coming of the Holy Spirit

Worship Focus:  Pentecost Day marks the birthday of the Holy Christian Church. After his ascension into heaven, Jesus fulfilled his promise by sending the Holy Spirit on his disciples in a miraculous way to hasten the spread of the gospel. Today we commemorate this important even that took place 50 days after Jesus’ resurrection, and we celebrate the work of the Holy Spirit in the Church and in our own lives.

RITE OF CONFIRMATION

Nine students have completed their confirmation instruction and are giving testimony to their faith this morning. They are now ready to publicly confess that faith and pledge their life-long faithfulness to Jesus and his Church. The confirmands will receive Holy Communion for the first time this morning.

Worship Focus: Today we stand just a few days away from Jesus’ Ascension (which we will celebrate in a special service this week Thursday at 7:00 p.m.). Jesus has words of encouragement for his disciples as he looks ahead to the time when he would return to heaven and his disciples would be left behind as the first leaders of the Christian Church. As we apply these words to ourselves, our Lord’s promises encourage us—and, today, especially our confirmands—as we live as God’s people in this world.
