Family Pentecost Service @ the Labyrinth in the Woods

June 9, 2019

Pentecost is a Christian holiday that takes place 50 days after Easter, and celebrates the pouring out of the Holy Spirit onto the apostles. Since Pentecost marks the beginning of the ministry of the apostles, it is often referred to as the “Birthday of the Church.”

This year, as Senior Pastor Mary Baard was on sabbatical, several children volunteered to lead this year’s Family Labyrinth Service. They wrote prayers to share, selected music to perform, read scripture, led liturgies, and even helped write our Celtic-inspired Pentecost story (in the form of a Mad Libs). It was a delight to see the movement of the Spirit in our children and youth!

Thank you to all who celebrated the “Birthday of the Church” at the Labyrinth with us this year!
