This Sunday is Pentecost Sunday. This is the seventh Sunday after Easter. Pentecost means “fiftieth day” and is celebrated 50 days after Easter Sunday. You can read some more about this special day in our weekly newsletter which is attached. We hope you have a blessed Pentecost Sunday and you are most welcome to join us in Worship and fellowship any Sunday @ 10am in beautiful Bonny Hills.

For Christians, Pentecost is a holiday on which we commemorate the coming of the Holy Spirit on the early followers of Jesus. Before the events of the first Pentecost, which came a few weeks after Jesus’ death and resurrection, there were followers of Jesus, but no movement that could be meaningfully called “the church.” Thus, from an historical point of view, Pentecost is the day on which the church was started. This is also true from a spiritual perspective, since the Spirit brings the church into existence and enlivens it. Thus Pentecost is the church’s birthday.
