Pentecost is a feast that has its roots in the Jewish feast of thanksgiving. Later, it was recognized as the day that marked the renewal of the covenant between God and the Israelites, and the day to commemorate when Moses received the Ten Commandments on Mount Sinai. After Christ’s Ascension, Pentecost was known as the day God’s promises were fulfilled: His Church was established; the Holy Spirit – the Helper – dwelt within each one of the believers, providing them with what they would need to fulfill their calling; and the apostle ministry was equipped to be ambassadors of Jesus Christ among all nations and point the congregation towards His return.
The Pentecost weekend with our Chief Apostle is quickly approaching. While the divine service is the highlight of our weekend together, we are also looking forward to the day before, Saturday, May 19th. For the first time, Saturday has planned activities that offer the opportunity for us to come together. Below is a schedule of everything that will be happening on that day.
