GRACE IN WORSHIP

23rd SUNDAY after PENTECOST
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 31 ONLINE

To safe guard the health and safety of our community and members in the midst of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, join us every Sunday online at 10:45 a.m. via Zoom ID 169104127 or click tinyurl.com/gracehappens 

For the month of October, our worship series is “Singing the Lord’s Song.” We will journey through the Psalms and be reminded that in the midst of challenging and trying times, we can “sing the Lord’s song in a strange land.” It may take time to learn some new lyrics, sing in a new key or build the confidence to sing at all, but the Psalms show us that we are able to discover trust, love, hope, and peace when we are able to sing the Lord’s Song. 

The topic for this Sunday’s message is Our Help Comes From the Lord. There is joy when we know from where our help comes. Praise the Lord, because all our help comes from the Lord. The proclaimer is our lead pastor, the Reverend Victor Cyrus-Franklin. Review the October worship bulletin.

 LITURGICAL SEASON

Pentecost is the sixth season of the Christian calendar year that concludes the Easter season and celebrates the birth of the church. The church was born when the Holy Spirit came upon the the Apostles, Mary, and the first followers of Jesus, who were gathered together in the Upper Room.

A “strong, driving” wind filled the room where they were gathered, and tongues of fire came to rest on their heads, allowing them to speak in different languages so that they could understand each other. The color of the season is red to symbolize zeal and the Holy Spirit. The symbols of Pentecost are those of the Holy Spirit and include flames, wind, the breath of God and a dove.

Just because you can’t see him, doesn’t mean he’s not there.
