“What does Pentecost mean to you?” This is the question (or answer) we look at today. It should mean quite a lot, because it is considered the “birthday” of the church. “What does the power of God mean to you?” This is also a Pentecost question. This day was the fulfilment of the promise of Jesus, to send “power” (literally, dynamite) to the church. Come and get it! [Organ/Choir - Pentecost]

Someone asked, “What language does God speak?” The answer came back, “dreams and visions.” Since before time God himself had a dream and a vision of the kind of world he would create. The type of people and animals that would inhabit it. We’re it. You’re it. If you feel you’re falling a bit short of the mark, come and be refreshed by considering God’s dream and vision for you.
