Wear Red Next Sunday

Next Sunday, May 23 is Pentecost, and it is a day when we traditionally wear red. This annual feast on the Christian calendar is sometimes called the birthday of the church. The story of the first Pentecost is recorded in Acts 2 and is filled with symbolism of first and wind.

Volunteers Are Needed Urgently

As we move back into the Sanctuary and expand our worship and fellowship experiences, we could use your help. More volunteers will be needed in the following areas:

  • Audio/Video Team
  • Streaming Team
  • Online Worship Hosts (can be done from home)
  • Cleaning/Sanitizing Team
  • Greeter Team
  • Usher Team
  • Childcare & Children’s Ministries Team

Training will be provided for all of these teams, so please don’t hesitate to contact Pastor Erick or Samantha to let them know you can serve. We really need your support, so we can welcome our community back to campus.
