Sermon:           “A Rushing Mighty Wind”

Theme:            God’s gift of renewal and healing is poured out on God’s people as they worship and learn to trust in God’s power over their own strengths.

Purpose:          We will celebrate Pentecost by seeking to envision God working through us in new ways.

Scriptures:       John 7:37-39   “Out of the believer’s heart shall flow rivers of living water.” The Holy Spirit is offered to all who want to be filled with living water.

                        Acts 2:1-21      The coming of the Holy Spirit, Peter speaks to the crowds of Jesus, the Savior.


How is God moving us from being in our isolated fear and small expectations to bringing a message of renewal and transformation to the world today? What is the new movement of spreading God’s hope and peace that is happening now? How do we allow God’s grace to change us from thinking in small and restricted ways to seeing greater possibilities and opportunities for sharing God’s grace? What is God calling us to envision for our world today?
