Pastor Joy’s Message

“I will ask the Father, and he will send another Companion,
who will be with you forever.” (John 14:16 CEB)


       Pentecost is the day when the Church celebrates
receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit, the Companion.
According to Acts 2, on Pentecost the Holy Spirit came with
the noise of a wind, tongues of flame, and the disciples
speaking in other languages. In the Gospel of John, Jesus
tells us about the work of the Holy Spirit in human lives and
the world. The Holy Spirit’s work consists of convincing us of
sin, leading us to faith in Christ, empowering us to grow in
Christ-likeness, sustaining us, and comforting us. During the
last two years many in our congregation have lost loved ones.
When I look out at those gathered on Sunday mornings, I can
feel the loss and grief of God’s people. Through each of
these losses, I have also witnessed the Holy Spirit comforting
and strengthening both the bereaved and the whole
congregation. I pray that the Holy Spirit will continue to
comfort and sustain all of us. I look forward to celebrating
with you the gift of the Comforter on Pentecost Sunday May
24th.

           Yours in Christ –
