Welcoming All, Empowered by Christ, Sent Forth to Serve

May 21, 2023 message: “Gone Up with a Shout: Clap your Hands”

As Jesus prepares to leave the disciples, he opens their minds and blesses them. The result after he ascends is their return to Jerusalem with great joy and a desire for “continually” worshiping and blessing God in the temple. What happens when the “eyes of our hearts are enlightened?” We know the hope to which we have been called. As we wait for the Spirit with hope, we celebrate with abandon because we have no other ruler than the One who reigns with love and justice.

This is the sixth week in the series, “Dare to Dance Again.” Pastor Mary’s Ascension Day message is based on Psalm 47 and Luke 24: 44-53.

The 9:00 and 11:00 am worship services are available in their entirety on YouTube.
