Welcome to Community Church! This morning we begin our series Pentecost 2017 with the theme: “Praying For The Spirit.” Daily devotionals are available for this coming week as we celebrate Pentecost 2017 next Sunday! Take the time to use these devotionals and pray for more of the Spirit in our lives and our church! (Please note there is no evening worship service tonight because of the Memorial Day holiday.)
Next Sunday, Congregational Meeting: Sunday, June 4th After our Morning Service. Agendas have been distributed in member mailboxes, additional copies may be found on the table in the lobby. Plan to attend this meeting and vote for the coming year’s proposed budget and new council members.
Wednesday Night Pentecost Study: Pastor Dave will be leading a study at 7:00 PM on Wednesdays to help us grow in our understanding and experience of the Holy Spirit in our lives. This study will begin Wednesday May 31 and continue through the month of June. This study group is open for everyone.
Please be in prayer for healing, strength and comfort for our brothers and sisters in Christ.

Please Pray for the Persecuted: Shanti was in prison for her faith. Feeling weak, she told God that she would probably give up names of Christians if she was tortured; yet three times she boldly shared the Gospel with her interrogators. Hearing what Shanti said, one of her interrogators became a Christian. He shared that he knew instinctively that God had done the work through Shanti and told her, “That really wasn’t you!” Please pray for God’s protection for others who are persecuted for their faith, that they too may boldly share the Gospel and saves eternal lives.
