THE PENTECOST TREE  HOLY SPIRIT COME!  Just to the right as you enter the parking lot is an impressive tree that we have dedicated as “The Pentecost Tree.”  It is wrapped with a belt of red ribbon and  encircled by two red cords with multiple snaps for securing notes.  Pentecost is celebrated by the world wide church as the occasion for the coming of the Holy Spirit which brings unity in the midst of diversity, fulfillment out what is incomplete.  You are invited to access the box situated  next to the tree to leave a prayer note asking for an out pouring of the Spirit upon a concern of your life.  The concern may be personal.  It may be related to family.  It may encompass local, national or international concerns.  But it is a concern that needs the attention of the Holy Spirit.  We all pray together, “Holy Spirit Come!”

ADVENT AT BROOKHAVEN UMC

The stable slowly gains an audience over the Season of Advent, as a variety of figures make their way to the place where the “in-breaking” of God into history will occur on Christmas Day.  Members of the Brookhaven congregation are invited to add their own figurines as representatives of themselves seeking the birth of peace, hope, joy and love in their own lives.
