I often feel after Pentecost, that we do not make a big enough deal about Jesus’ Ascension. (Probably because it seems to sneak up on us as we recover from Easter.) Yet in Acts 2, Peter explains why the disciples are speaking in tongues. Because Jesus has ascended and sat down on His throne at the right hand of God, He and the Father have poured out the Holy Spirit (vs. 32,33).
In God’s sovereign order, ascension is necessary. It is necessary to “seal the deal” of our salvation–the filling of the Holy Spirit (John 16.7).
The Holy Spirit given as the fulfillment of God’s promise (Galatians 3.14) is a reason to party. I hope this rings true to us, especially in light of our party theme from last Sunday’s Luke 15 focus!
SO LET’S PARTY AND CELEBRATE ASCENSION AND PENTECOST!!!
On Ascension Day, Thursday, May 25, you are invited to attend dinner at one of various homes that will be open for a dinner party. Please sign-up in the fellowship area at church on Sunday. Each home will set their own menu. The host may ask you to bring something. There will be some worship (Scripture reading and prayer) and plenty of fun and fellowship.
Pentecost follows Ascension. On June 4, Pentecost Sunday, we’ll celebrate after church with a church-wide potluck. Please bring a main dish and either a side dish or a dessert.
Observing the church calendar might be a new thing for you, but it is a rich way to keep our eyes on Jesus. May we adore our awesome God in closer community together.
Join us for this great time of being all together as a family! One service, with our children in worship.
There will be Sunday School at 9;30 a.m., for all ages.
