           The Apostles’ Creed

           I believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth;

           And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord;

                      Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,

                      Born of the Virgin Mary,

                      Suffered under Pontius Pilate,

                      Was crucified, dead, and buried;

                      He descended into Hades;

                      The third day he rose again from the dead;

                      He ascended into heaven,

                      And sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty;

                      From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

           I believe in the Holy Spirit;

                      The holy Christian Church;

                      The communion of saints;

                      The forgiveness of sins;

                      The resurrection of the body;

                      And the life everlasting. Amen.


Hymn                        “Spirit of God, Descend upon My Heart”             #294

Spirit of God, descend upon my heart

Free it from sin, though all its pulses move.

Stoop to my weakness, mighty as you are,

And make me love you as I ought to love.


I ask no dream, no prophet ecstasies,

No sudden rending of the veil of clay,

No angel visitant, no op’ning skies,

But take the dimness of my soul away.


Did you not bid us love you, God and King,

Love you with all our heart and strength and mind?

I see your cross – there teach my heart to cling.

O let me seek you and O let me find!


Teach me to feel that you are always nigh;

Teach me the struggles of the soul to bear,

To check the rising doubt, the rebel sigh;

Teach me the patience of unanswered prayer.


Teach me to love you as your angels love,

One holy passion filling all my frame:

The baptism of the heav’n descended Dove,

My heart an altar, and your love the flame. Amen.

Scripture                   Acts 2:1-27

John 7:37-39 TNIV -- 37On the last and greatest day of the Festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. 38Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” 39By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jess had not yet been glorified.


Acts 2:1-21 TNIV – 1When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 2Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. 4All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.


5Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. 6When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard their own language being spoken. 7Utterly amazed, they asked: “Aren’t all these who are speaking Galileans? 8Then how is it that each of us hears them in our native language? 9Parthians, Medes and Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene; visitors from Rome 11(both Jews and converts to Judaism); Cretans and Arabs – we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues!” 12Amazed and perplexed, they asked one another, “What does this mean?” 13Some, however, made fun of them and said, “They have had too much wine.”


14Then Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice and addressed the crowd: “Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, let me explain this to you; listen carefully to what I say. 15These people are not drunk, as you suppose. It’s only nine in the morning! 16No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel:


17“’In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people.

Your sons and daughters will prophesy,

Your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.

18Even on my servants, both men and women,

I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.

19I will show wonders in the heaven above and signs on the earth below,

Blood and fire and billows of smoke.

20The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood

Before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.

21And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’

Hymn                        “What a Fellowship, What a Joy Divine”             #83

What a fellowship, what a joy divine, leaning on the everlasting arms.

What a blessedness, what a peace is mine, leaning on the everlasting arms.

Leaning, leaning, safe and secure from all alarms;

Leaning, leaning, leaning on the everlasting arms.


O how sweet to walk in this pilgrim way, leaning on the everlasting arms.

O how bright the path grows from day to day, leaning on the everlasting arms.

Leaning, leaning, safe and secure from all alarms;

Leaning, leaning, leaning on the everlasting arms.


What have we to dread, what have we to fear, leaning on the everlasting arms?

We have blessed peace with our Lord so near, leaning on the everlasting arms.

Leaning, leaning, safe and secure from all alarms;

Leaning, leaning, leaning on the everlasting arms.
