VISION.

Jesus' prayer in John chapter 17 is that his followers would be one just as He and the Father are one. Our response to this prayer today is to come together in humility to seek this unity that Christ offers through the Holy Spirit. As the body of Christ, we want to acknowledge our differences but focus our attention on Jesus who alone is able to reconcile all things. We want to praise God together, encourage each other and confess our faith in Christ as our savior.

Pentecost is the descent of the Holy Spirit and the beginning of the Church, the new covenant community sustained by God's Spirit throughout time. Pentecost is a time to come together and seek the unity that Christ offers. It is our hope and prayer, our vision, that you would join us.

MISSION STATEMENT.

  • Worship God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit as One Church Body with many members
  • Repent from the reality of our sins (past, present, and future) that cause division
  • Encourage and inspire each other to be "salt and light" in the world
  • Bear witness to the Good News bringing healing to all creation

If you want to pray/talk with someone other than a priest/pastor during the event there are accredited people wearing red vests and credentials that you are welcome to reach out to.

Church leaders who want to inspire and rejuvenate your congregations and staff by celebrating our diverse yet unified faith through this large, powerful experience are called to get involved.

EVENT.

2.00pm

Doors Open

Arriving early allows enough time for 14 000 people to enter and rush seating. Parking is available, but carpooling and public transportation are good options.

3.00pm

Praise & Worship

Hymns and songs that are well established and accepted by all denominations. Ex. How Great Thou Art. The worship will be lead by an ecumenical choir and musicians from different churches in Saskatoon.

---

The Life of Jesus

During the service there won't be a traditional sermon or a homily. We have chosen not to invite a famous speaker. Instead, 5 events from the life of Jesus will be read from the gospels all while the different generations engage in Jesus life-giving story.

---

At the Cross

Different churches that are represented will place a wooden cube around the cross. The significance of this is that we all bring our piece, different as it is, broken as it may be, and ask for Jesus to fit us into his body in a true way.

---

Offering

Be free to give as you feel called. There is no charge to attend the event.

5.00pm

Program Concludes

In the spirit of unity, be encouraged to stay and fellowship, or enjoy a meal together. Follow @pentecost2020sk on Facebook and Instagram to receive updates after the event.
