AFFIRMATION OF FAITH- Responsive
At Pentecost the Holy Spirit was given to the church.
In pouring his Spirit on many peoples, God overcomes the divisions of Babel; now people from every tongue, tribe, and nation are gathered into the unity of the body of Christ.
Jesus stays with us in the Spirit,
who renews our hearts, moves us to faith, leads us in the truth, stands by us in our need, and makes our obedience fresh and vibrant.
The Spirit thrusts God’s people into worldwide mission.
He impels young and old, men and women, to go next door and far away into science and art, media and marketplace with the good news of God’s grace. The Spirit goes before them and with them, convincing the world of sin and pleading the cause of Christ.
The Spirit’s gifts are here to stay in rich variety—fitting responses to timely needs.
We thankfully see each other as gifted members of the fellowship which delights in the creative Spirit’s work. He gives more than enough to each believer for God’s praise and our neighbor’s welfare.
(From “Our World Belongs to God,” par. 31-33)

SCRIPTURE LESSON- Acts 2:14-21
14 Then Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice and addressed the crowd: “Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, let me explain this to you; listen carefully to what I say. 15 These people are not drunk, as you suppose. It’s only nine in the morning! 16 No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: 17 “‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. 18 Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. 19 I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. 20 The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord. 21 And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’
PASTORAL PRAYER- Rev. Jim Bowden (Lead Pastor)
THE LORD’S PRAYER
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the Kingdom, and The Power, and The Glory Forever. Amen.
