Glitter + Fire All-Ages Pentecost Service

This special Pentecost service will feature anointing with oil and glitter. On Pentecost, in an amazing pyrotechnic display, the Holy Spirit disrupted conventional notions about what division is. We use glitter to symbolize the Spirit’s transgressive movement on Pentecost. We use glitter to symbolize the Spirit encouraging us to stand together against forces of fear and division.   All ages welcome!
