Multi Cultural Pentecost Service


I am an interim pastor at Hillcrest CRC in Denver. This Sunday our church is hosting a service of congregations with people of Cambodian, Chinese, Native American, and English speaking backgrounds. Can you share one or two creative thoughts for such a service? The theme is one of each person hearing the good news in their own language. The potluck afterwards ought to be great. Tom Draayer.

How exciting, Tom! I would utilize all of these languages in the reading of scripture and in prayers. I would also have songs from all of those backgrounds represented--with the appropriate instruments if possible. A song such as "God is So Good" can be sung in a variety of languages to unite all cultures. I'd encourage you to think global, and enjoy the opportunity of worshiping with so many different "nations."
