Day of PentecostSunday, May 19
Pentecost is the fiftieth day of Easter. The earliest church has completed forty days of ongoing teaching from the Risen Lord, followed by a ten-day prayer vigil after his ascension. On this day, the church began to move out in and by the power of the Holy Spirit. Today, we celebrate the culmination of Eastertide by welcoming the gift of the Spirit and commissioning people into new ministries with our support and prayer for the Spirit’s power.

Last night, Bill Shortal announced to the choir and musical ensembles of First Church that the time has arrived for him to retire.
First, Bill is an incredibly gifted and talented person and musician.
Second, I am completely committed to maintaining the quality, creativity and theology of First Church’s music and arts ministry.
Third, in this transition of leadership, you and I will need to pray for God’s guidance and direction.
Finally, I will claim for all of us, Jesus’ promise that he will not leave us alone.

Through your giving, you will be blessed, and you will have the satisfaction of knowing that your gift glorifies God. As the Bible says, “The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed; those who help others are helped.” (Proverbs 11:25 — The Message)
