We promise that we will uphold these parents in the fulfillment of their vows and provide for all families full opportunities for Christian growth and nurture. sCriPture Acts 2:1-21 When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. 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. Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability. Now there were devout Jews from every nation under heaven living in Jerusalem. And at this sound the crowd gathered and was bewildered, because each one heard them speaking in the native language of each. Amazed and astonished, they asked, “Are not all these who are speaking Galileans? And how is it that we hear, each of us, in our own native language? Parthians, Medes, Elamites, and residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya belonging to Cyrene, and visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabs—in our own languages we hear them speaking about God’s deeds of power.” All were amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, “What does this mean?” But others sneered and said, “They are filled with new wine.” But Peter, standing with the eleven, raised his voice and addressed them, “Men of Judea and all who live in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and listen to what I say. Indeed, these are not drunk, as you suppose, for it is only nine o’clock in the morning. No, this is what was spoken through the prophet Joel: ‘In the last days it will be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams. Even upon my slaves, both men and women, in those days I will pour out my Spirit; and they shall prophesy. And I will show portents in the heaven above and signs on the earth below, blood, and fire, and smoky mist. The sun shall be turned to darkness and the moon to blood, before the coming of the Lord’s great and glorious day. Then everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.’ anthem Jocelyn Hagen I Will Pray and Sing

Sermon How Many Candles? Hymn 292 (Please rise in body or spirit, and sing.) WAIRUA TAPU As the Windsong to the Trees Time of Prayer Call to Prayer Silent Prayer Intercessory Prayer The Lord’s Prayer Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day, our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen. Offertory Angels Visit When We Sing Tom Trenney Alleluia! Angels visit when we sing and the morning stars rejoice, we can hear them echoing in each faithful heart and voice: Alleluia! Angels visit when we sing as they did at Jesus’ birth, and the music that they bring links the heavens with the earth! Alleluia! Angels visit when we sing and remind us with their praise, sin and death have lost their sting! For the crucified is raised! Alleluia! Angels visit when we sing and our hearts are touched by fire, as our hymns and anthems ring with the sound of heaven’s choir. Alleluia.

offertory resPonse (Please rise in body or spirit, and sing.) OLD 100th Praise God, from whom all blessings flow; Praise Christ, the Word in flesh born low, Praise Holy Spirit evermore; One God, Triune, Whom we adore. Amen. Prayer of dediCation (unison) God of Amazement and Wonder, you have been preparing the way for us throughout time. On this day of Pentecost, we celebrate the power of the Holy Spirit. In awe, we watch the everyday miracles experienced all around us. We trust that these gifts will foster the miracles and the possibilities you have in store for this church community. Come Holy Spirit, come! Amen. hymn 295 (Please remain standing and join in singing.) SINE NOMINE Go to the World BenediCtion E.

Consequently, feminine pronouns are effective metaphors as well. * Join us for coffee and cookies in Pilgrim Hall following the service. * Immediately following this morning’s service, everyone is invited to receive communion. All are welcome to simply walk in and receive the elements from one of our clergy. First-Plymouth Congregational Church • 2000 “D” Street • Lincoln, Nebraska 68502 402.476.7565 •
