Focus Statement: : The church, as a revelation of God’s kingdom, shapes our identity as God’s people, not because of who the church is made up of but how those within the church understand their relationship to one another.

Scripture Readings: Acts 2:1-21

Thinking ahead: The power of Pentecost surrounds us, penetrates us, and holds us together as the church. As members of the church, we understand that this is a gift we extend to all who gather.
