Pentecost Weekend

Pentecost Wear Red 2015

On Sunday, May 15, the church celebrates the Pentecost. This occurs roughly 50 days (pente) from Jesus’ resurrection. As the disciples were waiting in Jerusalem, they received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. This allowed them to share the Gospel of Jesus in languages which were not their own. They also received God’s power, boldness and courage to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ The Pentecost is also known as the birth of the Church. (Acts 2:1-4).

Seventh Sunday of Easter — May 8, 2016

It is possible to hear in Jesus’ high priestly prayer, a prayer he offered shortly before his death, the petitions of the ascended Lord for his own throughout history—to our day—and beyond. Jesus prays for us. In Holy Baptism we become believers in God, have our robes washed in the blood of Christ’s forgiveness, and receive the gift of life forever with all the saints.

Readings this week: Acts 16:16-34; Psalm 97; Revelation 22:12-14, 16, 17, 20, 21; John 17:20-26

On Thursday, May 5, we celebrate the Ascension.  Forty days after Jesus resurrected from the dead, as he and his disciples were on the Mount of Olives, Christ was literally taken up into heaven.  (Acts 1:9-11).  Angels who were present told the disciples that one day Jesus would come back down to earth just as he went up.

Natl Day of Prayer 2016

National Day of Prayer – Thursday, May 5 @ 12 Noon
Prayer & Worship Service
Culpeper County Courthouse Steps

A resolution to have a national day of prayer on the first Thursday in May was approved by the U.S. Congress and signed by President Harry Truman in 1952. It was intended that people from different faiths would come together to pray for the nation, business, education and social services of our country. It is powerful to know that the nation is all praying together at one time, asking God’s mercy and blessings upon the United States of America.
