Next Sunday (May 23rd), believe it or not, we will be celebrating Pentecost! Since the story of Pentecost is shared in chapter 2 of Acts, I thought it would be good to explore chapter 1 in an effort to join the disciples in their waiting, as they await the arrival of the Holy Spirit.
To hear the story of Jesus parting words to the disciples and the story of his ascension: Click here to read Acts 1:1-11.
Blessings, Pastor Laurie
It has been a joy to stay connected and to interact with folks near and far on our Zoom Coffee Hour each Sunday. We value the connections we make online and we plan to continue this ministry even as we return to in-person worship.
ZOOM COFFEE HOUR Returns This Sunday
Please plan to join me for Zoom Coffee Hour this Sunday, May 16th at 12:15 pm. A link for Zoom Coffee Hour will be sent out on Saturday, so check your inbox.
Some of you have shared that you are having difficulty connecting with Zoom. Regrettably, Zoom is the best way for us to connect at this time as it allows us to SEE and hear each other, it’s like a video conference call. You do need to have a camera and microphone to connect (so if you have an older computer this can be a challenge as some of us have discovered.) You can use your phone (be sure you are using wifi rather than data) or Ipad to connect with Zoom and I am working on a low cost camera and microphone option, so contact me if you are interested.
I am also happy to help you connect. The first step is to set up a free Zoom account, which
you can do at zoom.us. Once you have an account, give me a call and we can do a practice Zoom meeting or you can click on the link in my weekly email to join me for Zoom office hours at the appropriate time.
