Sunday, May 20, we celebrate Pentecost, with a dramatic reading from Acts 2, the choir sings “Whom Shall I Fear”, we blow bubbles outside as a symbol of the Spirit wind, and we’ll be preparing CWS Hygiene Kits for disaster areas around the world. We still need hand towels (15″ X 28 to 16″X32″, no microfiber or dishcloths), standard size band aids, toe or finger nail clippers, bath-size bars of soap in wrappers and wide-tooth combs.
On the Day of Pentecost we celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit descending in a mighty rush of wind and flame to inspire the church’s proclamation of Christ’s rising and to empower its mission and ministry to the world. We wear red to worship on Pentecost Sunday as a symbol of the flame at the birth of the church.
We will celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion.
Once a month, Knox Presbyterian Church celebrates communion together during the Sunday worship service. We celebrate the sacrament via intinction: this method of serving communion involves dipping a piece of broken bread into the grape juice so as to take both elements together.
