Celebrating the Gifts of the Spirit: Pentecost!

A huge, busy Pentecost Sunday!  The sanctuary was filled with red helium-filled balloons.  Above is a procession the children led, as part of a Pentecost liturgy where we identified gifts of the spirit, such as understanding, wisdom, strength.  Everyone in the congregation then had the opportunity to light a candle to reflect on the gifts of the spirit they have or need.

Arrow Barnard and Joe Tammen also confirmed their baptism today, we wished Farewell and Godspeed to the Weicksels as they move to Maryland, and we were blessed with beautiful French horn music, thanks to the Barnards.
