day of Pentecost has been referred to in many
different ways over the history of the Christian
Church. Sometimes it is called “The Birthday
of the Church.” It is the third major
festival of the church year (along with Christmas
and Easter) which celebrates the third member
of the Holy Trinity, that being The Holy Spirit.
It also signals the end of the Easter season,
and the beginning of the season of Pentecost,
the longest church season of the year, sometimes
called “Ordinary Time,” by some
Christian traditions. This year we begin our
summer months on the Day of Pentecost, June
Christian festival derives its name from the
Jewish festival of Pentecost, observed 50 days
after Passover. On the fiftieth day of Easter,
we celebrate the Holy Spirit as the power of
God among us to heal, forgive, inspire and unite.
Images for the day include wind and fire, as
the Spirit is poured out on disciples of all
nations in Acts 2:1-21. As we gather this year
to celebrate Pentecost, we remember that in
the one Spirit, we are baptized into the one
body of Christ, and whenever we come to the
Lord’s table, the Spirit unites us for
witness in the world.
is often used for trips and vacations, and I
hope that many of you get the opportunity to
take advantage of this time. I will be sticking
pretty close to home, but Lucy and Hannah will
be travelling to Ireland with Lucy’s mom
for ten days toward the end of June. My prayer
is that the Holy Spirit will travel with all
who travel, and rest upon all who rest. And
that the presence of God will be known in real
and palpable ways for all of us during this

THANK YOU TO THE CONGREGATION FOR PHEBE GIFTS
Thank you for your generous gift of $650 to
the Phebe Hospital Solar Project. Your faithful
generosity is making a life changing difference
to the patients, staff and residents at Phebe.
The Rural Renewable Energy Alliance installation
team arrived at Phebe in March and for 22 days
worked side by side with local Liberians constructing
a 100Kw solar system. Everything came together
well; the system is operational and providing
The next step is to arrange training in the
US for 2-4 individuals in the installation and
maintenance of solar systems so they can care
for the Phebe system and install future systems
in Liberia. Future donations to the Phebe Project
will be used to cover the cost of this training
and other items such as energy efficiency upgrades,
and providing a backup emergency power supply.
Thank you for all your support. None of this
could have happened without you and many others
across the country.

hearts and clear our sight,
till, white-hot in your possession, we, too,
set the world alight.

FOR SIMPLY GIVING USERS
The Support Committee received a notice that
VANCO, the company used by Thrivent to operate
automatic fund transfers (i.e. our offerings)
has transitioned all users to the "Give+"
program for giving options. This is due to a
change by Thrivent, which worked in partnership
with VANCO, to end this type of service. Thrivent
fully encourages us to remain with VANCO.
According to the notice, nothing will change,
offerings will process as before. It is unlikely
that you will notice any change to the name
on your bank statement for the withdrawal, but
we wanted to make you aware of this change.
Additional services are available including
a free mobile app which the Support Committee
is investigating. If the committee's review
of the mobile app process is positive, we will
make an announcement.
If you have any questions, please contact Mary
Ellen Franzen (email@example.com).

Bible Study: Are you brave enough to be part
of God’s renewal? It could get messy and
might even affect those you love. Are you ready?
Let’s talk about this!
Buckets – We filled 45 buckets with cleaning
products for LSS Disaster Response. They have
been taken to North Community for storage until
Disaster Response needs them. Thank you to everyone
who donated all those cleaning supplies. Thank
you, WELCA, for donating all the face masks
and heavy-duty trash bags. This was a beautiful
collaboration among all the members of our church
it’s time to make those health kits! We
will be collecting items for health kits throughout
the summer. They need to be packed up and delivered
by October 6. Last year Clinton Heights contributed
NINE big boxes of soap and school kits for Lutheran
World Relief, and we are hoping for a generous
response this year, too. Each health kit must
contain: 1 light-weight, darker colored bath
towel; 2 or 3 bath-size bars of soap (equaling
8-9 oz.); 1 adult-size toothbrush in its original
packaging; 1 sturdy, wide-toothed comb (no picks
or fine-toothed combs); 1 metal nail clipper
(attached nail file is optional). If you want
to do completed kits, just put all the items
in a plastic grocery bag and put it in the bin
in the narthex. If you want to donate individual
items, that is fine, too. Any money donations
will go toward buying items to make complete
kits. Tooth brushes can be bought in multi-packs.
We will open the package and place individual
tooth brushes in business-size paper envelopes.
Your donations will certainly make a big difference
in people’s lives.
