Sign from WSUMC’s kneeling protest

What can we learn from the bible about the modern world and our recent struggles? Come and join us as we examine 2 Chronicles 20:9, 12-17 and Luke 15 in search of an answer to the questions of faith around today’s protests.

Pentecost! Sunday, May 31, 2020

On Pentecost Sunday, we remember the day the disciples received the Holy Spirit in a special way. The story in Acts 2 describes a powerful wind and tongues of fire as the Holy Spirit was poured out on people from all over the world who came to Jerusalem to celebrate a Jewish feast. At the first Pentecost over 3000 people were baptized, creating the first church. This is why Pentecost is known as the birthday of the Christian church.

The word Pentecost comes from a Greek word meaning fiftieth. The Jewish Festival of Pentecost (called Shavuot, meaning “weeks” in Hebrew) falls on the fiftieth day after the original Passover. On that day, God gave the Torah to Moses on Mount Sinai. The Christian festival of Pentecost falls on the 50th day after the resurrection of Jesus.

This Sunday we share a wonderful service from the New England Conference in celebration of Pentecost.

What Went Wrong?

Sunday Service, May 3, 2020. Our service today focuses on Acts 2:37-47 and in particular to the faith community that was established and then disappeared. We ask the question “What went wrong?” Perhaps these days you’ve been asking yourself the same question? Come and join us in worship online!
