This Sunday Edythe Arnott will be leading us in worship.
Last Sunday we celebrated Pentecost as we commemorated the Holy Spirit descending upon the Apostles and followers of Jesus Christ. With the Holy Spirit indwelling each believer of Jesus Christ, they were now equipped and ready to spread the gospel far and wide in the great commission (Matthew 28: 16-20). It isn’t easy being Jesus’ disciples – or making disciples! Jesus – and the apostle Paul – offer us words of encouragement in their farewell addresses to their disciples and faith community.
