Weekly Online Worship

Pentecost, May 31, 2020

Sunday, May 31, is Pentecost Sunday. The Cabinet of the Greater Northwest Area has invited several churches across the Greater Northwest to offer virtual worship and we are invited to join them online. With at least one church from each district, the chosen hosts include a variety of worship styles from faith communities serving diverse communities.

On this day, when we remember the Holy Spirit descending upon the disciples gathered “all together in one place,” it is fitting for local churches to gather together. In the season of COVID-19, it is fitting for the “gathering” to take place virtually. The miracle will be that the people will hear and understand each other, even though separated by great distances. Joining with another church for Pentecost will offer respite for many pastors who have stretched to lead worship virtually for many weeks at the same time they have tended to the needs of congregations and community members during this extraordinary time of uncertainty and anxiety. And it can be a powerful experience of the power of the Holy Spirit to evoke community among people who do not know each other – yet.

Worship leaders in the following local churches offer their hospitality as a gift to their colleagues and to the members of other Greater Northwest Area local churches. Below you can find a list of these locations, their worship information including times and URLs for members of other local churches to join them. Each one is but a click away.
