Sunday Morning Service

Prelude: The orchestra played “Surely, the Presence of the Lord Is in This Place” and “I Sing Praises.” The choir followed with “Holy Spirit Medley.”

First Special: The octet sang “Born to Praise” (pictured above).

Scripture Reading: Dwight Baltzell read Acts 1:1-8.

Last Special: Deborah Brenner sang “Breath of God.”

Sermon: Darrel Lee used Acts 2:1-4 for the text of his sermon on Pentecost, focusing on four aspects: God’s promise to send the Holy Spirit, the purpose of the baptism of the Holy Spirit, the prayer to receive that experience, and the power that first fell on the Day of Pentecost.

Watch the full service in the Media Center.
