* Litany for Pentecost                        Readers

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

The earth was without form and void,

and darkness was upon the face of the deep;

and the Spirit of God was moving over the face of the waters. (Genesis 1: 1-2)

The voice of the Lord is upon the waters; the God of glory thunders, the Lord, upon many waters. (Psalm 29:3)


The wind blows where it chooses,

and you hear the sound of it,

but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes.

So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit. (John 3:8)

The voice of the Lord causes the oaks to whirl, and strips the forest bare; 

and in God’s temple all cry, “Glory!” (Psalm 29:9)


When you send forth your Spirit all living things are created;

and you renew the face of the earth. (from Psalm 104:30)

The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it,

the world and those who live in it. (Psalm 24:1)


I baptize with you water;

but one more powerful than I is coming

who will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire. (from Luke 3:16)

The voice of the Lord flashes forth flames of fire. The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness; the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh. (Psalm 29: 7-8)


May the Lord give strength to the people!

May the Lord bless the people with peace! (Psalm 29:11)

Pentecost Play        Pentecost: Everyone’s Talkin’ by Andrea Burton         Sunday School Kids

Affirmation of Faith adapted from Brief Statement of Faith (PCUSA) - 10.4 

We trust in God the Holy Spirit, everywhere the giver and renewer of life. 

The Spirit justifies us by grace through faith, sets us free to accept ourselves and to love God and neighbor, and binds us together with all believers in the one body of Christ, the Church. 

The same Spirit who inspired the prophets and apostles rules our faith and life in Christ through Scripture, engages us through the Word proclaimed, claims us in the waters of baptism, feeds us with the bread of life and the cup of salvation, and calls women, men, and people to all ministries of the Church. 

In a broken and fearful world the Spirit gives us courage to pray without ceasing, to witness among all peoples to Christ as Lord and Savior, to unmask idolatries in Church and culture, to hear the voices of peoples long silenced, and to work with others for justice, freedom, and peace. In gratitude to God, empowered by the Spirit, we strive to serve Christ in our daily tasks and to live holy and joyful lives, even as we watch for God’s new heaven and new earth, praying, “Come, Lord Jesus!”

Invitation to the Table         Rev. Heather Chase

It is right to give our thanks and praise.

Hosanna in the highest!


Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord.
