Sunday, May 16, 2021 Ascension Sunday

Hi Church,

The Ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ is often a overlooked part of history. It happened, but it doesn't garner a whole lot of hoopla in today's church. Yet it is significant. To name one thing that the Ascension furnishes us with in the 21st Century, is that without it, there would be no Holy Spirit-empowered living. Jesus had to ascend in order to send out the Holy Spirit on Pentecost. The ascension text for this Sunday is Acts 1:1-11. Perhaps not the most exciting text, but essential.

Tonight the pastoral search committee gathers for their bi-weekly meeting. If you think about it around 7:30, why not say a prayer for them as the convene to do an important task.

Saturday is a work day. You all have done an admirable job so far with many tasks already done. There are still a few things on the list. We will see some of you on Saturday at 9 a.m.

Juneteenth is coming up on June 19th. Even though this event is right around the corner, there is still planning going on about it. Our church will be participating and is marketed as a sponsor. Please keep this event in prayer too.

See you on Sunday.


Rev. Timothy Bees
