Lutheran Church Celebrates Pentecost, Confirmation

Lutheran Church in the Foothills celebrates Pentecost and Confirmation this Sunday, May 19, at 10 a.m. All are welcome.
In the church year, the day of Pentecost is the culmination of the 50 days of the Easter celebration. After showing himself to the disciples and after having ascended, Jesus’ followers received the promised gift of the Holy Spirit. On the 50th day of Easter, our Lutheran worship is filled with festivity, color and movement as we both conclude the Easter celebration and welcome anew the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Confirmation, which is now commonly called Affirmation of Baptism, is the time when young people declare for themselves that they will live out the promises made at their baptism.
The church would like to remind the community that it continues to accept non-perishable food donations to feed the hungry. Details on what items are needed can be found on the church website.
As LCIF looks ahead to June, it encourages families with young children to pre-register for Vacation Bible School. VBS will be held June 17–21, from 9 a.m. to noon. It is open to children ages 4 through sixth grade. The cost is $35 for one child, $25 each for two or more kids. There will be lots of singing, dancing, crafts and games, all centered on learning about God in new ways.
