You Are Welcome At Saint Aidan's Episcopal Church!
We are a loving community of followers of Jesus who worship joyfully in the Episcopal tradition, support each other in prayer and fellowship, and serve the community through our outreach ministries. Please stay after worship so we can say hello. Whether it is through participating in the worship on Sunday morning, or through serving as the hands and feet of Jesus to the world by out-reach ministries, we know that you’ll find a home here at St Aidan’s!!!
May the Glory of the Lord Endure Forever!
Our readings for Sunday, June 9 are: Acts 2:1-21; Psalm 104:25-35, 37; Romans 8:14-17; John 14:8-17, 25-27
Sunday, June 9, is Pentecost, the day when the Holy Spirit descended with the sound of a mighty wind and tongues of fire upon the Apostles, and the world would never be the same. Pentecost Sermon:Neverthe same.
"And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting." Acts 2:2
The Spirit may not come to us like a violent wind; maybe, like a sudden inspiration, or as a studied response to a situation we've been pondering. In any case, the Spirit is calling us to give of ourselves in care and support of others like our church family, our community or the many in need further away.
