May 13th, 2016 by Glendale Pastor | Comments Off on WELCOME PASTOR RUSS MATTESON THIS SUNDAY!
Please join us for breakfast, and fellowship this Sunday!
We will be serving a delicious hot breakfast at 9:00 a.m. and at 10:45 a.m. we are blessed to have Pastor Russ Matteson leading our service.
We will also have Special Music performed by Ryan Mascilak.
This Sunday is Pentecost Sunday, it is a day when we celebrate the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the first disciples. It is also considered to be the birthday of the church because after the coming of the Holy Spirit, the disciples did not stay in the room basking in God’s glory but burst out to tell the world. This was the beginning of the church as we know it.
Today, in many Christian churches, Pentecost Sunday is celebrated to recognize the gift of the Holy Spirit, realizing that God’s very life, breath and energy live in believers. Sometimes we feel like we have little or no power, especially in the face of difficult problems that inevitably find us (more on that next week). But the truth is that God still pours out his Holy Spirit on disciples today and when he does we have the power to do great things!
