Church Announcements

This Sunday, we will celebrate Pentecost as we reflect on the moment the disciples received the Holy Spirit in a special way. Acts 2 tells how a strong wind and flames appeared as the Holy Spirit came upon people from all over who were in Jerusalem for a Jewish festival. Over 3000 people were baptized that day, marking the start of the Christian church. That's why Pentecost is called the church's birthday. 

We will gather in Asbury Hall at 9 am for a casual service with contemporary music and at 11 am in the Sanctuary for a traditional service with organ music and our Chancel Choir. We would love for you to join us! If you are joining online, your bulletin can be found here

Clean Up Day: This event has been rescheduled due to the weather prediction for Saturday. We need some help cleaning up the debris on the back hillside and in the stairwells on our newly rescheduled date of Saturday, June 1st, starting at 8:00 am. Would you be able to volunteer your time to help us beautify these areas and make them more functional? Please sign up when you come to worship this weekend or call 412-882-9300.
