Welcome to our church on this blessed Pentecost Sunday!
Today, we gather in joy and celebration as we commemorate the outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon the disciples and the birth of the Church. Just as the early followers of Jesus experienced the presence and power of the Spirit, we too eagerly anticipate the same divine encounter in our lives.
That first Pentecost Sunday happened over 2,000 years ago as the Holy Spirit was poured out on 120 believers who had gathered to receive the promised gift!
John 14:16 – And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Advocate to be with you forever — 17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot receive Him, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But you do know Him, for He abides with you and will be in you.
Most recognize this day as the Birthday of the Church as the Word of God was powerfully preached by Peter. Following this message, the Bible tells us that over 3,000 were added to the church in one day!
Welcome, everyone, to our Sanctity of Life Sunday service. Today, we come together to reflect on the sacredness and value of every human life, from conception to natural death.
We recognize that every person is made in the image of God and has inherent worth and dignity. And we affirm the sanctity of life in all its stages and conditions, including the unborn, the elderly, the disabled, and the marginalized.
Church Welcome – Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Weekend
Welcome to Church!
On this great weekend, we want to take this opportunity to welcome you to (NAME OF CHURCH) as we, first of all, honor our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, but also as we celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
While we could spend hours sharing some of the powerful quotes from Dr. King, I wanted to share a few as we open our service today. As you know, they are in complete agreement with the Word of God, which gives them an even more significant impact for not only us here today, but all of humanity:
We are so glad to have you with us today here at (NAME OF CHURCH)! This is a very special day as we take the time to “give honor where honor is due” and recognize and appreciate the Pastor(s) of our church during this Pastor's Appreciation Month.
Whether this is your first time with us or you are a regular attendee, we want you to know how much we appreciate having you here with us. We trust you will enjoy the service while experiencing the wonderful presence of the Lord as the service progresses.
We will take some time during this service to let our Pastor(s) and families know that we appreciate them so much. We value their ministry and will not only support them today, but will love and pray for them throughout the year. We trust you will join us!
