Pentecost is regarded as the birthday of the Christian church and the start of the church’s mission to the world. Celebrate this joyful day this Sunday by wearing the color red to worship. Red is the color of fire and is used on this day to remember the tongues of fire that descended on the crowd in Jerusalem.
Here is a short clip of our Pentecost celebration last year with the reading of the lesson in different languages.
At First Lutheran, we are a community of disciples of Jesus Christ working for the transformation of the world. Throughout our history, we have remained committed to drawing on our Lutheran (ELCA) tradition of using meaningful worship, content-rich learning and warm hospitality to care well for our congregation, the surrounding community and the world.
