1st Sunday After Pentecost

Wesley On the Move! June 16 – June 23

This Sunday: It’s the 1st Sunday after Pentecost, called “Ordinary Time” in our Christian Calendar. The Christian year includes two central cycles focused on major events in the life of Christ: the Christmas cycle (Advent-Christmas-Epiphany) and Easter cycle (Lent-Easter-Pentecost). Ordinary Time follows each cycle.

The word “ordinary” here does not mean “routine” or “not special.” Instead, it refers to the “ordinal numbers” (first, second, third, etc.) used to name and count the Sundays (such as the Third Sunday after Epiphany) the Season after Pentecost begins the day after Pentecost and continues to Advent. The purpose of this season is to support living out the gifts and callings discerned during the Easter Season and commissioned on the Day of Pentecost.  This Sunday, we’ll look at the importance of intergenerational mentoring in our sermon: “Just Aim the Light.”

Also, we will take up a special offering on Sunday, June 16th that will donated to the UMC RioTexas Conference Immigration Response fund.
