All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability. - Acts 2:4
This Sunday we celebrate the Feast of Pentecost. We recall, through scripture and sacraments, the disciples stepping forward in ministry in new and profound ways. We read powerful stories from the book of Acts and recall our own part in this story by baptizing and renewing our own baptismal covenant.
Last year we began a new tradition at Ascension, hosting a ministry fair on this same day, an opportunity for all to step forward in ministry. This event begins in the Parish Hall at 9am with information from various ministries. Each member will have the opportunity to place a card with a commitment to ministry in the offering during worship along with a card for the Capital Campaign. Our mutual commitment makes greater things possible.
In celebration of Pentecost and the culmination of the Capital Campaign we will have a picnic following the 10:15 service. You don't want to miss this opportunity for food and fellowship. There are some special additions to the event this year including music, a bounce house and a dunk tank! There is a lot happening here at Ascension. I look forward to celebrating with each of youthis Sunday.
