May 31, 2020: Pentecost (Empty sanctuary and online audio and video due to COVID-19)

Good day Grace Free Lutheran Church members and guests,

This is our May 31, 2020 online "service". At this time, unless things change, we will be providing audio only for the service next week. This is because starting this Sunday, in-person services will resume at 9:30 AM. Full information is on our main web site. The tech crew will still be recording the entire service for those who are unable to make it, or are high risk. The deacons, trustees and the church tech are working to bring back a video service, streaming live, in the future.

This is Pentecost Sunday, the coming of the Holy Spirit. Pastor Hodge's sermon is on that, and we invite you to worship with us and be reminded of this joyous day. You can see the service online later today or tomorrow morning on our Facebook page, and you can hear the audio portion here:

And we pray that you have a great week in Christ Jesus!
