I hope this note finds you well on what is a beautiful Tuesday afternoon here at Lowhill!
This past Sunday, we talked about the movement of the Holy Spirit in the early church’s experience of Pentecost, and about the ways in which the Holy Spirit continues to move, today, in us.
The Sunday after Pentecost has traditionally been observed in many churches as “Trinity Sunday,” a time to meditate on the unique relationship we’re able to have with a God who comes to us as loving Father, in flesh and blood as Jesus, and who dwells within us and moves us together as the Holy Spirit.
This year, Trinity Sunday also falls on Father’s Day, and we’ll think about both of those themes as we worship together.
In case you haven’t heard, a bit of house-keeping news: Our annual Father’s Day Picnic has been moved from this Sunday to Sunday, June 26, due to some electrical issues with the pavilion that are now being fixed.
Even though we’ll have our Father’s Day Picnic on June 26, we’ll still honor fathers this coming Sunday in our worship service and as we share the love of God who we experience is loving parent, faithful friend, and living presence. Please join us!
This coming Sunday will also be our last week of Sunday School until the Fall, but Vacation Bible School (July 15 – 19, 6PM to 8PM) is just around the corner!
Please also remember to save the date for our 250th Anniversary Celebration weekend! On Saturday, July 27 we’ll celebrate outside with food, games, vendors, live music and more, and on Sunday, July 28, we’ll share together in Holy Communion, welcome local leaders and long-time friends of the church to celebrate with us, explore historic traditions in our modern context, share the Lord’s Prayer in Pennsylvania Dutch, and give God tremendous thanks for the first 250 years of our journey together!
Please join us!
Have a blessed week, and I’ll see you on Sunday!
