Call to Worship

          Receive with joy the gift of the Holy Spirit.

                        We feel the winds of God blowing among us.

            How amazing is the power God gives us.

                        The breath of God fills us and creates new life within and among us.

 

Opening Hymn                          “Sweet, Sweet Spirit”                                    334 (UMH)

There's a sweet, sweet Spirit in this place
And I know that it's the Spirit of the Lord

There are sweet expressions on each face
And I know they feel the presence of the Lord

Sweet Holy Spirit Sweet heavenly Dove
Stay right here with us Filling us with your love
And for these blessings We lift our hearts in praise
Without a doubt we'll know that we have been revived
When we shall leave this place

 

Congregational Prayer               “An Invitation to the Holy Spirit”                           335

O God, the Holy Spirit, come to us, and among us; come as the wind, and cleanse us; come as the fire, and burn; come as the dew, and refresh; convict, convert, and consecrate many hearts and lives to our great good and to thy greater glory; and this we ask for Jesus Christ’s sake. Amen.

Holy Spirit, light divine, shine into this heart of mine.

With the warmth of the morning sun, melt our hearts and make us one.

 

O burn with your fire, quench our desire, send down a message from above.

Join us this hour, pour out your power, fill us with sacred love.

Holy Spirit, come.  Come, Holy Spirit, come. 

 

Holy Spirit, heavenly Dove, come and fill our hearts with joy and love. 

Melt away these clouds of night, flood the world with glorious light. 

 

O burn with your fire, quench our desire, send down a message from above.

Join us this hour, pour out your power, fill us with sacred love.

Holy Spirit, come.  Come, Holy Spirit, come. 

 

O burn with your fire, quench our desire, send down a message from above.

Join us this hour, pour out your power, fill us with sacred love.

Holy Spirit, come.  Come, Holy Spirit, come.

 

Come, Holy Spirit.  

Burn with your fire, quench our desire, come, Spirit come!

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 trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever.  Amen.

 

Prayer Response                 “Where the Spirit of the Lord Is”                         (FWS) 2119

Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is peace;

Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is love.

There is comfort in life's darkest hour;

There is light and life,

There is help and power in the Spirit,

In the Spirit of the Lord.

 

Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is peace;

Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is love.

There is comfort in life's darkest hour;

There is light and life,

There is help and power in the Spirit,

In the Spirit of the Lord.

 

Scripture Reading                       Acts 2: 1-21 (NRSV)               Rev. Dr. Brian Bosworth 

            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.’

 

Sermon       A Windy Day That Launched a Movement”       Rev. Dr. Brian Bosworth

 

Invitation to Christian Discipleship                                            Rev. Dr. Brian Bosworth

 

Hymn of Invitation                             “Spirit Song”                                      347, vs. 1 & 2

O let the Son of God enfold you

With His Spirit and His love.

Let Him fill your heart and satisfy your soul.

O let Him have those things that hold you,

And His Spirit like a dove

Will descend upon your life and make you whole.

 

Jesus, O Jesus, Come and fill Your lambs.

Jesus, O Jesus, Come and fill Your lambs.

 

O come and sing the song of gladness

As your hearts are filled with joy.

Lift your hands in sweet surrender to His name.

O give Him all your tears and sadness;

Give Him all your years of pain,

And you'll enter into life in Jesus' name.

 

Jesus, O Jesus, Come and fill Your lambs.

Jesus, O Jesus, Come and fill Your lambs.
