To Create a Caring Community
To Honor and Serve God.
Pentecost is considered to be the day the church was born, and the 2nd most important day of the Christian year after Easter. Pentecost (originally a Jewish holiday 50 days after Passover), is remembered as the day the Holy Spirit came in tongues of fire, among the gathering of the apostles. Liturgical Color: Red; the color of fire and the symbol of the Holy Spirit.
