And in the month of May, we celebrate some special events:Mothers Day May 12Our youth group will be making a special brunch after the 10:00 service in honor of mothers and other important female role models! Come and celebrate Mom with us!Pentecost May 19Wear red for Pentecost, the third major festival day of the church (after Easter and Christmas)! This feast day celebrates the coming of the Holy Spirit, inspiring the church to grow and spread throughout the world, and giving gifts so that we all can share in Christs mission. This year, Pentecost coincides with the end of Nativitys program year, so at the 10:00 service, our special celebration will include our end-of-year recognitions of children, youth, teachers, youth leaders, chapel leaders, and graduating seniors. And, we will honor our terrific choir!Summer Programs Begin May 26This year, Nativity will continue our regular Sunday worship schedule through the summer, with an 8:00 Rite I service and a 10:00 Rite II service.
