Speaker: Jerry Cisar

Did you know that this Sunday is the anniversary of Christ’s kingdom inauguration? On this day nearly 2,000 years ago the inaugural ball was thrown and the first citizens of the restored kingdom of God were welcomed in with fanfare. The festivities began with wind and fire filling the place. People speaking in languages they did not know but others understood. This Sunday is Pentecost Sunday.

Did you know that Pentecost is relevant to your life as a believer in Jesus? It’s the origin story of the kingdom of which you are a citizen. The preacher of Hebrews says that you (plural), the church, have come to Mt. Zion. When did you get there? You arrived on Pentecost. And here we stand.

Join us in worship as we explore Hebrews 12:18-29 in our series, Imagining the Kingdom. Pentecost (Acts 2) provides the background for understanding the two mountains of Hebrews 12. Maybe you’ve never imagined you were standing at the foot of a mountain, and therefore haven’t considered which one. We will discover why this is important for who we are and how we live.
