Come and join together for a good ol’ time at our annual Pentecost Picnic on Sunday, May 20 at 12:15 p.m. in the courtyard. All are invited to bring sides to complement the entrée of fried chicken, like salads (potato, pasta, rice, green salads), vegetables, fruit and dessert. Vegetarian options are welcome! We ask that individuals help with $5 and families of four and more $20.
Don your casual picnic attire and choose the color red for Pentecost Sunday.
Do You Speak a Foreign Language?
Each year on Pentecost Sunday (May 20), we invite those who speak or read a language other than English to participate in the reading from the book of Acts. We encourage wide participation from all who worship with us. The readings will be done from the seats, taking place simultaneously with the languages filling the nave. Please contact Cheryl Gaspard in the church office for more information or a copy of the reading in your language.
