Pentecost Prayer:

Almighty God, we your children pray: let your glory come down.
   Let the Fire fall on us gathered here as on that first Day of Pentecost.
Revive our spirits, fill us with new excitement, with joy unspeakable
   And compassion for a dying world.
Empower us to speak your Word; to utter your words of Life;
   Using a variety of languages to bring the good news to the poor.
Lord, let your fire fall once again on this church, on this community,
   On this country, and on all the families of the earth.
In Jesus name and in the power of your Holy Spirit. Amen.

Message Excerpt:

Experiencing God
Acts 2:1-21
by Sue in Cuba, KS

In the late 1960ís and early 1970ís the Charismatic movement swept the United States. A great deal of time and attention was paid to how we define the church. The church is not the building at the corner of First and Main or the time set for services.

The church is the people who are called by God into fellowship. Ekklesia, a Greek word that means those called out of. Called out of the world into a fellowship with God and one another. We are a church which is faithful people who gather weekly to worship and to serve God.

The people gathered in Jerusalem for Pentecost were biblically literate, faithful folk who had come to the most holy city in search of an experience with God. Some place names and nationalities may not be familiar to us, who are the Medes? Others like Arabs jump out at us, Arabs? The list is even stranger when we consider that all these people were Jews and converts to Judaism. Jewish Arabs? This sounds like a contradiction in terms. These people listed are the Jews of the Diapora, the dispersion of God's chosen people through out the known world. God prepared a seed bed of God's word in the known world by sending His people into all the cities...

...Three thousand responded. Three thousand were baptized and the church was launched. Even Billy Graham would have been impressed. So today on the One thousand, nine hundred, sixty fifth birthday of the church what does this mean for us? People still seek authentic experiences with God and are attracted to people who have an authentic relationship with God.

There are six spiritual needs that all humans require to grow and to mature:

  • 1. We all need to know that our life is meaningful and has a purpose
  • 2. Sense of community and deeper relationships both with God and other humans.
  • 3. All people want to be appreciated and respected.
  • 4. People need some caring person to listen and to hear what they say.
  • 5. Everyone needs faith and to grow in faith.
  • 6. People need practical help in developing a mature faith. ...
