 Prayer of the Day  

Holy Spirit God and Lord, come to us this joyful day with your sevenfold gift of grace. Rekindle in our hearts the holy fire of your love that in a true and living faith we may tell abroad the glory of our Savior, Jesus Christ who lives and reigns with you and the Father, one God, now and forever.

First Lesson: Joel 2:28-29*

28After this, I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh.
Your sons and your daughters will prophesy.
Your old men will dream dreams.
Your young men will see visions.
29Even on the male servants and the female servants,
I will pour out my Spirit in those days.

Psalm of the Day: 51b (p. 49 in Supplement)

 Second Lesson: Acts 2:1-21*

When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place.2Suddenly a sound like the rushing of a violent wind came from heaven, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3They saw divided tongues that were like fire resting on each one of them. 4Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, since the Spirit was giving them the ability to speak fluently.They were all filled with the

 5Now there were godly Jewish men from every nation under heaven living in Jerusalem. 6When this sound was heard, a crowd came together and was confused, because each one heard them speaking in his own language. 7They were completely baffled and said to each other, “Look, are not all these men who are speaking Galileans? 8Then how is it that each of us hears them speaking in his own native language? 9Parthians, Medes, and Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, and of Judea, Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt, and the parts of Libya around Cyrene; visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes; 11Cretans and Arabs—we hear them declaring in our own languages the wonderful works of God.” 12They were all amazed and perplexed. They kept saying to one another, “What does this mean?” 13But others mocked them and said, “They are full of new wine.”
 
14Then Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice, and spoke loudly and clearly to them: “Men of Judea, and all you residents of Jerusalem, understand this, and listen closely to my words. 15These men are not drunk, as you suppose, for it is only the third hour of the day. 16On the contrary, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel:

17This is what God says will happen in the last days:
I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh.
Your sons and your daughters will prophesy.
Your young men will see visions.
Your old men will dream dreams.
18Even on my servants, both men and women,
I will pour out my Spirit in those days,
and they will prophesy.
19I will show wonders in the sky above,
and signs on the earth below,
blood and fire and a rising cloud of smoke.
20The sun will be turned to darkness
and the moon to blood
before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.

21And this will happen: Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.

 Gospel Lesson:  John 16:5-11*

5“But now I am going away to him who sent me, and not one of you asks me, ‘Where are you going?’ 6Yet because I have told you these things, sorrow has filled your heart. 7Nevertheless, I am telling you the truth: It is good for you that I go away. For if I do not go away, the Counselor will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you. 8When he comes, he will convict the world about sin, about righteousness, and about judgment: 9about sin, because they do not believe in me; 10about righteousness, because I am going to the Father and you will no longer see me; 11about judgment, because the ruler of this world has been condemned.”

Sunday Worship with Communion

 Welcome! To the new friends among us, we bid you welcome! To the friends who know us, we renew our welcome. If you are seeking to know Jesus Christ better, we invite you to keep studying God’s inspired, inerrant Word with us. Classes giving Bible information which you will appreciate are offered regularly. Beautiful Savior became a congregation in 1991, and today proclaims the same message of salvation through Jesus Christ alone.
 
Congratulations: Congratulations to Hunter Lyons, Aidan King and Nicolas Lindgren on reaching this milestone in their lives. May the Lord continue to be with them as they take the next step in their lives of faith and as a part of this congregation.
 
The flowers today are given to the glory of God by Harold and Lauren Henriksen in celebration of today's Confirmation.
 
Refreshments: Those that attend the 10:30 service today are invited to remain after the service for some light refreshments in honor of the Confirmands.
 
Bible Study: We have consolidated some of our Studies. Those that were coming on Tuesday have moved to other days because we are no longer restricted in the number of people we can have at our study. We continue to have Wednesday at 10:00, which is put on Facebook Live, and Thursday at 10:00. Come, join us as we look at the Book of Daniel.
 
Forward in Christ: You may pick up your June issue of Forward in Christ. It is in your mailbox.
