Looking for some last minute ideas for Pentecost? I've got a few here I'm using or have used in the past. Some are pretty simple, some take a little planning. I also have some ideas for kids if you do children's moment things.
Also, if you're into videos for worship - Worshiphousemedia.com collects videos from all the major producers of Christian Media. They have really great stuff. Currently, I'm using Shift Media and Centerline Media resources - they are clean, simple and elegant.
Enjoy and have a brilliant Pentecost Celebration!!!

- How about this for letting people outside of your church building, that something amazing is happening inside: http://www.typepad.com
- Use your altar space creatively - let red fabric run down from the altar and into your chancel.
- Use Ribbons and cut our doves that flow from the ceiling to symbolize the flow of the Spirit
- Check out sites like http://re-worship.blogspot.com for liturgies, songs, and even dramas. There are several new hymns that use traditional melodies that are very cool.
- This is a very cool idea for a children’s sermon to represent the uniqueness of the Spirit with each child - also creative and get’s them talking about the movement of the Spirit in a somewhat boring life: http://flamecreativekids.blogspot.com/2014/06/come-holy-spirit-fizzy-explosionprayers.html
