God sends his Spirit on all of us!
Spirit for a new kingdom: In a rush of wind and flame, God sent the Holy Spirit to those first followers of Jesus. Scared, confused, in hiding, far from home and afraid for their lives. Not exactly what we think of for the founders of a great spiritual movement!
But God is amazing! The Holy Spirit – God’s own spirit at work in the world – arrived at Pentecost. Those first followers couldn’t help but share the story of a new kingdom of love, justice and peace breaking into this broken world.
At PEACE Lutheran Church, we gather each Sunday to feel God’s Holy Spirit in and among us. Then, we go out into the world and do our best to share the story of God’s love for all people. We invite you to work with us!
Spirit of the One True God, come to us now! Change us deeply and forever. May we be a part of your kingdom coming into the world now! In the name of the risen Jesus I pray, Amen.

Meet us at 9:45 a.m. in the Game Room (near the Fellowship Center). After a little fussbol, at 10 a.m. we move to our Youth & Family Lounge for a Sunday School lesson.
On the FIRST SUNDAY each month, PEACE has ONE WORSHIP SERVICE at 10 a.m. So, we meet afterward, at about 11:30 a.m., in the Youth & Family Lounge for our lesson.
Youth @ PEACE is our all-ages Bible study, where young disciples learn the core stories of our faith and what it means to walk the Jesus Path. We welcome all who yearn to learn about our loving, gracious Creator.
Kids in church: PLEASE bring your young children to church! Their fussing and squealing may pain you, but they make us glad! Pick up an activity bag as you go into the Sanctuary (on the left in a basket, ask an usher). During the sermon, you can take your kids to our Nursery; a speaker is turned on so you can hear the sermon and follow the service.
Toddler Time: If you’re interested in our special Sunday School program for the tiniest of disciples, call (530) 575-6132. https://www.wearesparkhouse.org/store/category/286879/Frolic-Nursery

Like natural seasons, our church seasons have a special meaning for our spiritual lives.
TODAY is PENTECOST SUNDAY. For the next several months, we will be in the season we call Time After Pentecost. During this spiritual time, we read stories about what it means to live our lives as God’s People. We think about what it means to be part of the Kingdom of God, here and now!
Thank you, God for sending your Holy Spirit – who fills us with the strength to tell the world of your love!
