Local church to observe Pentacost

By Staff | Jun 10, 2011

Christ Reformed Church, 304 E. German St., Shepherdstown, will observe Pentecost with a festive service of Holy Communion on Sunday, June 12 at 7 p.m.

Pentecost, a major festival of the Christian year, falls 50 days after Easter and celebrates the gift of the Holy Spirit to the church.

Pulpit guest for the occasion will be the Rev. Doctor Jon Fogle, Brother of the Order of Corpus Christi and pastor of St. John’s United Church of Christ, in Wernersville, Pa. Music for this service will be under the direction of Mary Ann Morgan, director of music at Christ Church. A reception will follow the service.

Christ Reformed Church welcomes all to receive the sacrament and is most eager to welcome visitors. The church is wheelchair accessible.
