An Historic Treasure – Welcoming the Community

Day of Pentecost

The Birthday of the Church

Tongues of Fire

Date: Sunday, May 20, 2018
Time: 10:30 a.m. service
About: Pentecost is the Greek name for a festival known as the Feast of Weeks. The Greek word means “fifty” and refers to the fifty days that have elapsed since Passover. It is also reminiscent of the Last Supper.

At Pentecost, the disciples witness the birth of the New Testament Church in the coming of the Holy Spirit to dwell in all believers.
The description of fire and wind is mentioned in the Pentecost account,
Acts 2:1-3. The sound of wind at Pentecost was “rushing” and “mighty.” Just as Adam received the breath of physical life, Jesus brings the breath of spiritual life.

Fire is associated with the presence of God and the purification He can bring about in human life.

Another aspect of the Day of Pentecost is the miraculous speaking in foreign tongues which enabled people from various language groups to understand the message of the apostles. God’s presence is implied in the Pentecostal tongues of fire.

McDougall is a Breastfeeding Friendly Church

McDougall United Church bBreastfeeding logoecame Edmonton’s first official Breastfeeding Friendly church in 2013. In keeping with being an inclusive and welcoming church, mothers will not be asked to move or cover while breastfeeding. They are welcome to breastfeed anytime, anywhere at McDougall.

Business and public places in Edmonton who have adopted the Edmonton Capital Region Breastfeeding Friendly Policy for Businesses and Public Places are eligible to become official Breastfeeding Friendly Community Partners. Community Partners train their staff and volunteers to display a welcoming attitude towards breastfeeding mothers and children, not ask them to cover up or relocate, and to offer appropriate private facilities for women who ask. Training also helps staff handle other patron complaints about breastfeeding.

Community Partners display the International Breastfeeding Symbol. This lets Edmonton’s breastfeeding families know the facility is a safe and friendly space.
