Church Services on Sunday, November 19, 2017

Welcome to the website of the Church of the Holy Spirit, an international group of believers and seekers from many different backgrounds, sharing together the Good News of the Lord Jesus Christ.

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday.  Please go to our Visitor's Information page for service details including information about our Sunday School program and Child Protection Policy.

Lord, you have been our dwelling place

    throughout all generations.

Before the mountains were born
    or you brought forth the whole world,
    from everlasting to everlasting you are God.

You turn people back to dust,
    saying, “Return to dust, you mortals.”

A thousand years in your sight

    are like a day that has just gone by,
    or like a watch in the night.

Yet you sweep people away in the sleep of death—
    they are like the new grass of the morning:

 In the morning it springs up new,
    but by evening it is dry and withered.

We are consumed by your anger
    and terrified by your indignation.

You have set our iniquities before you,

    our secret sins in the light of your presence.

Teach us to number our days,
 that we may gain a heart of wisdom.

                                                 Psalm 90:1-8,12
