TODAY WE OBSERVE THE FEAST OF PENTECOST, when the Holy Spirit descended upon the disciples as Jesus had foretold. On that day the Holy Spirit preached through our Lord’s Apostles. Today the Holy Spirit preaches through pastors when they faithfully proclaim the message given them by the same Spirit through His inspired Holy Scriptures—that is, Jesus Christ crucified and risen. It is our mission task to help gather the multitudes from all nations to come to where Christ and the Holy Spirit are present. We invite others to join us at church where we are devoted to the apostles teaching, to the fellowship, that is, the breaking of bread, and to the prayers of the Church.

SNOW REMOVAL Remember all those days at the beginning of the year when our world was covered with white? Snow plowing costs for the first three months of 2014 were $1,995. That’s $995 above our budget of $1,000 for 2014. There is, of course, the possibility of more snow before the year ends. Special envelopes for snow removal will be in the pew card holders from June 8 to 22. If you are able to provide some extra funds to help us cover this deficit it would be greatly appreciated.
