Pentecost Sunday Resources Page Launched

Church of God General Overseer Tim Hill has called for a denomination-wide emphasis on the celebration of its Pentecostal heritage with a month-long “Preparing for Pentecost” focus toward this year’s Pentecost Sunday on June 4, 2017.

In an effort to equip pastors and churches, Church of God Communications has launched a website and link on which contains a number of resources designed to assist in promoting Pentecost and the Holy Spirit.

“As a historically Pentecostal movement, it should be second nature that everything we do in the ministry includes an element of the Holy Spirit and Pentecost,” Hill stated. “As we approach Pentecost Sunday, June 4, I cannot emphasize enough our obligation to keep Pentecost uppermost in our planning and prayers.”

Hill’s emphasis on Pentecost was evident earlier this week when before the Executive Council went into formal session on April 25, the Council gathered at the International Prayer Center at North Cleveland Church of God with members of the Administrative Ministries Council. There, under the title of “Preparing for Pentecost,” the two groups of leaders encountered the Holy Spirit, spending a time of intercession with a number of prayer warriors who prayed through the generations.

The “Preparing for Pentecost” site contains videos, sermon outlines, logos, social media shareables, and more. Each member of the Church of God Executive Committee has provided two sermon outlines. There are downloadable graphics to assist pastors and staff members with powerpoint presentations, bulletin inserts, and social media posts. Several videos will be released over the course of the next several weeks, including one designed to be shown specifically on June 4. The site can be reached directly at or on the home page at

The resources will also be posted in Spanish, including ten sermon outlines and all graphics translated for Hispanic congregations.

“The power of the Holy Spirit must mark everything we do,” Hill stated. “On June 4 we will celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit. I hope pastors will take advantage of these resources by using the Sundays in May to speak on some aspect of the Holy Spirit, the baptism, or Pentecost. That first Sunday is just over a week away on May 7.”
