Pentecost. Graduation. New Members.

 

This past Sunday was a special Sunday. We celebrated the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. With joy, we welcomed three new members. We also honored and prayed for three graduating high school seniors.

 

Acts 2 begins with the disciples waiting as Jesus had commanded them, waiting for the Holy Spirit. As the Holy Spirit is poured out, there is wind, fire and strange languages. The result was new life, changed lives. Peter for one experienced new life. Two months earlier he is denying that he knew who Jesus was. Now on Pentecost he stands up before thousands and preaches a powerful message. That day, three thousand who people responded to Peter’s message were baptized. The Holy Spirit breathes new life.

 

Our new members and our graduates represent new life for which we are grateful.

 

We rejoice in the path that has led Jerry and Linda Herman and Robert Jordan to our congregation. Each has a unique story of God’s working in their lives. Each has a unique part in the body of Christ with gifts and talents to use. Each represents new life that God breathes into our congregation.

 

We celebrate with our seniors Brooke Spinell, Alec Preston, Conner Preston and all the other seniors who are friends and family of our church. They have worked long and hard to come to this place of graduation. This month’s newsletter highlights our graduates. It shares their accomplishments and future goals. To our graduates, look to God in all you do. He will lead and guide your steps as you look to him.

 

We are well into spring. We have had plenty of rain and sunshine this spring. The grass, flowers, vegetables and weeds are rapidly growing. Signs of spring and new life surround us. May this and the ways we see God at work around us, remind us of the new life that the Holy Spirit breathes on us. We say with the hymn writer, “Breathe on me, breath of God.”   Breathe on our congregation, breath of God!

 

We celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit. We thank God for the signs of new life and we look forward to what God has in store for our future!

Thank You! 

 

  

Thank You to Pastor Jason for his many visits to Ed during this very trying time. Staying with us through both surgeries and his many prayers.

Talking to Ed and relieving some of his fears.

Also to Sam and the whole medical staff at Mercy. He still has a long way to go to heal and get well. With the many prayers from friends and relatives. We say thank you.

Ed & Bonnie Goehring

 

 

I would like to say a very special word of thanks for everyone’s prayers through this season in my life. I also appreciate all the visits and beautiful altar flowers which have lifted my recovery. It is the heartfelt kindness of this church and community that proves God’s grace.

Thanks Again!

Martha Wade
