Fifty days after Passover, the Pentecost festival, originally celebrated the wheat harvest but also had become the commemoration of the giving of the law on Mount Sinai. As the fiftieth day of Easter, Christians maintained the festival, altering its focus to a celebration of the Spirit of the risen Christ in the church. In an oblique reference to Sinai, the fire of God's word is now on the foreheads of the faithful. Pentecost concludes the Easter season.
RED is the color of the Holy Spirit and of the Feast of Pentecost. Come and join us as we celebrate the Spirit’s insistent, persistent movement in the world for the sake of life. Wear red and remember our summer worship times at 8:15 and 10:15 am.
