We hope you all have a blessed and safe Memorial Day!
We remember the brave men and women who have given their lives throughout our country's history to protect us from danger and harm. We remember all those who sustained injury in mind and/or body in the course of their service. We salute all those who have served in our military. Thank you!
Today we welcomed a guest speaker from Santa Rosa Kids House. Thank you, Kelley, for visiting and sharing with us about the program!

Today we celebrate the Christian holy day known as Pentecost, the 50th day (seventh Sunday) following Easter Sunday. On this day, the Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles and other followers of Jesus, while they were celebrating the Feast of Weeks in Jerusalem. The symbols used to represent the Holy Spirit (also symbols of Pentecost), include flames, wind, God's breath, and a dove. This day marks the end of the Easter season.
Acts 2: 1-4
1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
We'd like to offer a special thanks to the 3 amigos for their help cleaning the church. Thank you, Daniel, Keith, and Thomas!
Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."

Today we thank God for placing mothers and mother figures in our lives, who are images of grace, fierce love, tenderness, strength, wisdom, courage, humor and more. We wish everyone a blessed Mother's Day and many thanks to the love and hard work that mothers do.
