Pastor's Paragraph for May 20, 2018
MAY 20, 2018
Today is Pentecost Sunday, the birthday of the Christian Church! Traditionally this is the day on which new confirmands are received into the fellowship of the Christian Church after an period of preparation. In today’s 9:30 service we are receiving this year’s Confirmation Class into the membership of the Church and of Camp Hill UnitedMethodist Church. In the 11:00 service we are also receiving new members whohave completed CHUM’s 8 week long adult membership class called “Walking With God,” which is led by Pastor Jack Grove, our Pastor of New Members. We give Godthanks for this year’s confirmands, and also for the new members who have recently completed “Walking With God!” And most of all, we are thankful for God’s Holy Spiritwhich was first poured out on the Church 2,000 years ago on Pentecost Sunday. MayGod’s Holy Spirit truly be poured out upon each and every one of our members, andmay all of us together faithfully use the gifts the Spirit has imparted to each of us to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world!
