Community Presbyterian Church - Pentecost

 

Fifty days after the resurrection of Christ, the Holy Spirit descended on the disciples -- the day of Pentecost.

Pentecost
was an established Jewish festival also known as the Feast of Weeks, which drew people from many nations back to Jerusalem.

Pentecost symbolizes a new beginning. It celebrates the unleashing of the Holy Spirit on the world and the empowering of the church to reach the world with the gospel.

In celebrating Pentecost, the church expresses gratitude for the faithfulness of Christ in fulfilling his promise to send “another counselor”; celebrates the work of the Spirit in renewing all of creation; professes its confidence and security in knowing the Spirit’s power is available for its mission; and grows in awareness of the immensity of its calling to reach the world with the gospel.

The traditional color for Pentecost is red, after the flames described in Acts 2:3.
