The Acts of the Apostles recounts the story of the original Pentecost (Acts 2). Jews from all over were gathered in Jerusalem to celebrate the Jewish feast. On that Sunday, ten days after the Ascension of Our Lord, the Apostles and the blessed mother Mary were gathered in the Upper Room, where they had seen Christ after His Resurrection:
And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a mighty wind coming, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them parted tongues as it were of fire, and it sat upon every one of them: And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they began to speak with divers tongues, according as the Holy Ghost gave them to speak. [Acts 2:2-4]
Christ had promised His Apostles that He would sent His Holy Spirit, and, on Pentecost, they were granted the gifts of the Spirit. The Apostles began to preach the Gospel in all of the languages that the Jews who were gathered there spoke, and about 3,000 people were converted and baptized that day.
God provided a home for our church family in the perfect spot to reach out to the community, but it doesn't "look" like a typical church building. On April 21, 2015 the roof on the sanctuary was torn off and rafters started going up to build a new roof over that side of the building.
In four days we went from looking like a store to looking more like what people expect a church building to look like. The roof on the Parish Hall side of the building has been torn off and replaced, also. The windows and door on the sanctuary side of the building will be replaced soon, and the facade will look very different when it is all finished.
We welcome you to help us follow through with the plans that God has put before us!
