Pentecost Summer Theme

Empowered by the Spirit, we live by faith

Theme Write-up written by Matthew Reece, Director of Music Ministries

Our first Pentecost worship theme, “Empowered by the Spirit, we live by faith,” explores the profound connection between the empowering work of the Holy Spirit and the sustaining presence of Jesus Christ as the Bread of Life. This theme invites us to reflect on the teachings of Jesus. Just as bread sustains physical life, Jesus nourishes the soul and empowers believers to live out their faith through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.

Through word and song, prayers and reflections, we are encouraged to deepen our understanding of how the Spirit enables us to abide in Christ and to embody his teachings in their daily lives. The theme underscores the vital role of faith as the conduit through which the Spirit empowers believers to live authentically and fruitfully as disciples of Jesus. As we engage with this theme, we are invited to partake in the spiritual nourishment offered by Christ, finding sustenance and strength to navigate life’s challenges with courage, hope, and unwavering trust in God’s faithfulness.


Julie, Thank you for the beautiful altarscape for the season.

Introduction Copyright © 2024 Augsburg Fortress.

The mustard seed becomes a great shrub that shelters the birds, recalling ancient images of the tree of life. We’d expect a cedar or a sequoia, but Jesus finds the power of God better imaged in a tiny, no-account seed. It’s not the way we expect divine activity to look. Yet the tree of life is here, in the cross around which we gather, the tree into which we are grafted through baptism, the true vine that nourishes us with its fruit in the cup we share. It may not appear all that impressive, but while nobody’s looking it grows with a power beyond our understanding.

Scripture Introductions Copyright © 2024 Augsburg Fortress.

Ezekiel 17:22-24

Tree imagery is used in a messianic prophecy to tell how the Lord will choose someone from Judah’s royal family (the cedar tree) to reign over all creation. This tree will be planted on Mount Zion, the location of the holy temple.

Psalm 92:1-4, 12-15

The righteous shall spread abroad like a cedar of Lebanon. (Ps. 92:12)

2 Corinthians 5:6-10, 14-17

Paul encourages believers to live by faith and not by sight. We do not consider Jesus from a human perspective but through the eyes of faith, believing he died for all and was raised. All who are in Christ are now in God’s new creation.

Mark 4:26-34

Jesus frequently uses parables to teach ordinary people as they are able to hear and understand. Images of sowing and growing show the vitality of God’s kingdom.

Fellowship Time

You are invited to stay after worship for refreshments and fellowship time in the gathering space.
