Pentecost Sunday is the seventh Sunday after Easter that acknowledges and celebrates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the disciples. Jesus promised that when he decended into heaven that he would send us a comforter, a helper, the Spirity of truth, the Holy Spirit, to lead, guide and keep us connected to our Heavenly Father (John 14:15-17). His promise was fulfilled in Acts 2:1-4,"When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heavven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance."
On Sunday, June 8th, we will be celebrating Pentecost with guest speaker Apostle Gregory Kelley, Pastor of Restoration of Life through Jesus Christ Ministries, Inc. We invite you to come learn more about Pentecost Sunday and celebrate Jesus Christ with us.
