Prayer for Memorial Day
An Affirmation of Pentecost (in Unison)
We are God’s people, inspired by God’s great Spirit to:
witness more effectively, think more clearly,
meditate more regularly, feel more deeply,
listen more insightfully, speak more truthfully,
love more extravagantly, care more soulfully,
serve more creatively, encourage more lovingly.
We are inspired by God’s great Spirit to:
give more lovingly, live more fully,
teach more eloquently, participate more faithfully,
pray more movingly, worship more deeply,
celebrate more joyfully, sing more enthusiastically,
give more generously.

“When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place” (Acts 2:1, NRSV). As we celebrate the Church’s birthday, we pray that the Holy Spirit may empower us and unify us so that we are truly “one in Christ.” Welcome, friends! We rejoice in your presence.
We need to update our DIRECTORY. In the narthex of the church is an old directory, and a sheet for updates. If we do not have your correct name, address, telephone number, or email, please supply this information. You can also email your information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will have a cook-out on next Sabbath, June 3, at 6:00 p.m. The purpose of the cook-out is to honor Meredith and Susan Cavin as they leave our area to go to Brighton, Tennessee. You are asked to bring hamburger buns, slaw, chips, and drinks.
