Your Church Pictures Wanted for Pentecost Worship

Your Church Pictures Wanted for Pentecost Worship

The Southern New England Conference staff is preparing a virtual Pentecost Worship service for churches to use on May 23 - and they'd like to add pictures from your church to the video.

"What does it look like to be the church now? Can you show evidence of God's spirit in action in your community?" asks Rev. Elizabeth Garrigan-Byerly, the Area Conference Minister who is coordinating the service. Churches are asked to send photos - including the church's full name, town and state - to  by April 26.

"Wind, fire, peace, power! All were present on that first Pentecost when the Holy Spirit united the followers of Jesus in shared praise and purpose. All will be present again this Pentecost." Garrigan-Byerly said.

Local congregations will be invited to use the virtual worship service in whole or in part. Elements will include: 
  • Three different music offerings 
  • Liturgy that incorporates audio and visual representations of the Holy Spirit (call to worship, welcome, prayer of confession & words of assurance) 
  • Engaging children’s message 
  • Dramatic retelling of the Pentecost story for all ages 
  • Sermon by Rev. Darrell Goodwin, Executive Conference Minister 
  • Prayers of the People offered by Executive Minister for Strategic Operations. the Rev. Dr. Audrey Price; visual will include images of local SNEUCC churches  
  • Lord’s Prayer prayed in various languages 
  • Offering, including invitation to Strengthen the Church 
  • Commissioning & Benediction 
The worship service videos will be posted two weeks prior to the service date.

Updates and worship links will be posted at
