Prelude (The light of Christ enters the world)

Call to Worship – Inspired by Acts 2

Leader: When Pentecost Day arrived, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound from heaven like the howling of a fierce wind filled the entire house where they were sitting.

They saw what seemed to be individual flames of fire

alighting on each one of them.

They were all filled with the Holy Spirit

and began to speak in other languages

as the Spirit enabled them to speak. 

ALL: Come, Holy Spirit, come! Come, Holy Spirit, come!

Holy Spirit,

making life alive,

moving in all things,

root of all being,

cleansing the cosmos of every impurity,

effacing guilt,

anointing wounds.

You are lustrous and praiseworthy life,

you waken and re-awaken everything that is.

Come Now is the Time to Worship

Congregational Greeting Time “Wave to your neighbor.”

Prayer & Offering

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,

For Ever And Ever


Unashamed Love

Scripture: John 14:15-17; 16:12-15 New Living Translation

15 “If you love me, obey my commandments. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you. 17 He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you. 

12 “There is so much more I want to tell you, but you can’t bear it now. 13 When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own but will tell you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future. 14 He will bring me glory by telling you whatever he receives from me. 15 All that belongs to the Father is mine; this is why I said, ‘The Spirit will tell you whatever he receives from me.’
