"Holy Disruption"

Acts 16:16-34

16One day, as we were going to the place of prayer, we met a slave girl who had a spirit of divination and brought her owners a great deal of money by fortune-telling. 17While she followed Paul and us, she would cry out, “These men are slaves of the Most High God, who proclaim to you a way of salvation.” 18She kept doing this for many days. But Paul, very much annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, “I order you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.” And it came out that very hour. 19But when her owners saw that their hope of making money was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace before the authorities. 20When they had brought them before the magistrates, they said, “These men are disturbing our city; they are Jews 21and are advocating customs that are not lawful for us as Romans to adopt or observe.” 22The crowd joined in attacking them, and the magistrates had them stripped of their clothing and ordered them to be beaten with rods. 23After they had given them a severe flogging, they threw them into prison and ordered the jailer to keep them securely. 24Following these instructions, he put them in the innermost cell and fastened their feet in the stocks.

25About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. 26Suddenly there was an earthquake, so violent that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were unfastened. 27When the jailer woke up and saw the prison doors wide open, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself, since he supposed that the prisoners had escaped. 28But Paul shouted in a loud voice, “Do not harm yourself, for we are all here.” 29The jailer called for lights, and rushing in, he fell down trembling before Paul and Silas. 30Then he brought them outside and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” 31They answered, “Believe on the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.” 32They spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all who were in his house. 33At the same hour of the night he took them and washed their wounds; then he and his entire family were baptized without delay. 34He brought them up into the house and set food before them; and he and his entire household rejoiced that he had become a believer in God.

Pentecost Sunday June 5th

~Pentecost ... the day the Church exploded into existence through the holy spirit descending on the first believers like "tongues of fire", leading them out of their locked upper room, boldly into the city of Jerusalem. 

~We celebrate Pentecost by wearing red, decorating the sanctuary with red balloons and red geraniums, and reading from Acts 2 how early believers were given power to witness to the Resurrected Jesus. Also on Pentecost, we celebrate the confirmation of our young teens ready to confirm their faith and join the church family. As the confirmands state their intentions, the church family surrounds them in love and support, promising to walk with them into their future - wherever it leads.

~Pentecost is a glorious celebration of faith and how we live into the power of God's spirit together. It is a tradition of Cherry Lane to purchase red geraniums for the chancel area to remember and honor loved ones who have walked with us in life, especially in faith.

~June 5 is Pentecost Sunday. We have 6 confirmands who have been preparing for this time of commitment their whole lives (but especially these past 9 months) None of this would be possible without your support! Would you like to purchase a geranium in their honor as you offer your prayers and love in their continued journey?

~Take a moment to think about the people important in your faith journey, and purchase a geranium to honor or remember them. These geraniums will adorn the altar area on June 5th, and their names will be printed in the bulletin.

peace and joy
