Sunday, June 9
Pentecost is celebrated on the seventh Sunday after Easter, and marks the arrival of the Holy Spirit upon Jesus’ followers while they were in Jerusalem. This sacred moment is described in the Book of Acts in the New Testament.
At West LA UMC, we encourage everyone to wear something RED on Pentecost to represent the tongues of fire that descended on the new Christians.
This year on Pentecost, we will welcome new members into the church, as well as honour our graduates and award four church scholarships. Plan to stay after worship for the New Member Reception, hosted by the UMW Martha Mary Circle.
