Summer 2015 - Season of Pentecost

The Season of Pentecost uses the color green to decorate the altar and for vestments in the service. The green color, seen also in the summertime natural world, is also used to refer to the "greening power of the Holy Spirit," the ability of God to bring about new life, to call forth healing and renewal, to make things grow.

God's people at our best are always turning, like new shoots to the sun, to the source of our power, our healing, our growth. The light of Christ is transforming the world, leading God's people in the direction of kindness, teaching wisdom, and showering mercy upon those in need.

At. St, Matthew's, summertime worship begins each Sunday at 10am - downstairs in air-conditioned Bavendam Hall.

Share in the amazing things that God is doing in this world.
