PENTECOST LAWN WORSHIP SERVICE
Sunday, May 23, 11AM
DHPC’s next opportunity to worship together in-person will take place on Pentecost Sunday, the day we celebrate the birth of the Christian Church and the arrival of Christ’s gift of the Holy Spirit. This will be a joy-filled service with special bagpipe music to remind us of the wind and breath of God’s Spirit. We hope you will join in on the celebration and wear your favorite red duds as we remember the flames that danced above the early worshipper’s heads. It might be a little warm, so the large tent will be up to provide shade and you are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing to stay cool.
PENTECOST SUNDAY MISSION OPPORTUNITIES: SCHOOL SUPPLY KITS FOR MEMORIAL DRIVE MINISTRIES AND FOOD DRIVE FOR ICM
Sunday, May 23, 10:15AM
To help celebrate Pentecost, the Mission Team has organized two mission opportunities: First, as with all of our in-person events, we will collect canned goods and other non-perishable items for the Intown Collaborative Ministry food pantry. Second, prior to worship, you are invited to help prepare school supply packages for Memorial Drive Ministries (MDM), which supports many non-profit organizations that serve Clarkston’s large immigrant community. MDM will distribute these packages to students when they head back to school in August. The Mission Team will provide the supplies and we will work as a congregation to stuff backpacks with these items for the students. Please note this activity will occur prior to worship, so show up early to serve while also enjoying some (masked) face time with your fellow DHPC members. Contact Eric Dusenbury or Pastor Elizabeth for more information.
PENTECOST OFFERING: SUPPORTING MINISTRIES FOR YOUNG PEOPLE AROUND THE DENOMINATION AND REFUGEE CHILDREN IN CLARKSTON
Sunday, May 23
On Pentecost Sunday, Druid Hills will receive the second of the PC(USA)’s four special offerings, the Pentecost Offering. A gift to the Pentecost Offering helps the church encourage, develop, and support its young people, and also address the needs of at-risk children. A portion of the Pentecost Offering will go to Inspire, a program of Shalom International Ministry, that responds to the needs of refugee and immigrant youth in the Clarkston community that provides homework assistance, basic reading and math support, and opportunities for creative expression. The remaining portion will go to support national and international ministries of the Presbyterian Church that serve children, youth, and young adults. You may contribute to this offering by mailing a check with “Pentecost Offering” in the memo line to the church or making your gift online here (choose “Special Offering” as the Fund). Thank you for your generosity and commitment to the work of the church.
