Not long after the church got going all those centuries ago, two things really BIG happened—the day of Pentecost, where many people came together as One in the Holy Spirit. And….people began struggling with human challenges in being one—in keeping that Spirit alive and not dividing the body of Christ. We hope that you’ll join us today as we struggle with this age-old problem of Christians, and look at hope in the love that Jesus Christ showed us how to keep first and foremost in our lives—so that the World would know that God loved them.
Worship today is just over 28 minutes, with song, scripture, prayer, and a short message. As we do each week, our closing moments together include a time of communion (breaking of the bread). We invite you to participate if you would like with some type of actual bread and drink you supply, or these elements held in your mind. You may also meditate as we tell of Jesus' invitation to "do this in remembrance of me." All are welcome at our table.
