We welcome all members and visitors to our service today. Spirit of the living God visit us again on this day of Pentecost. Come, Holy Spirit. With rushing wind that sweeps away all barriers, come, Holy Spirit. With tongues of fire that set our hearts aflame, come Holy Spirit. With speech that unites the Babel of our tongues, come, Holy Spirit. With love that overlaps the boundaries of race and nation, come, Holy Spirit. With power from above to make our weakness strong, come Holly Spirit.
Pastor Gary Maas will lead us in our worship service this morning at the North Church at 10:30 a.m. We invite everyone who feels comfortable coming to join us in worship, but to try to spread themselves out throughout the sanctuary.
