The Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit Welcomes You.
The red door on an Episcopal Church is traditionally a sign of welcome. Come through the door, and you'll discover that we are a multi-generational, family-centered church. Our congregation worships together, supports each other in times of trouble, celebrates together, and does God’s work in the world. We are open, welcoming, and inclusive. We invite you to join us.
Pentecost: Our Birthday Celebration
On Sunday, June 8, the Christian church celebrates Pentecost, commemorating the time when the Holy Spirit descended upon the disciples. Or, as it is recounted in the Acts, "Now when the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like a violent wind blowing came from heaven and filled the entire house where they were sitting. And tongues spreading out like a fire appeared to them and came to rest on each one of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit, and they began to speak in other languages as the Spirit enabled them."
At Holy Spirit, it's also the day we celebrate the birthday of our parish. The service includes a procession with "tongues of flames" and parishioners read the Bible in a variety of languages. We complete the celebration with a red coffee hour -- think strawberries, watermelon and red velvet cake -- where all are welcome. This Pentecost, we're also excited to celebrate the baptism of three children when they too will become one with the Holy Spirit!
