A: Arise, shine; for your light has come,
C: And the glory of the LORD has risen upon us. (Isaiah 60:1)

*God’s blessings to all this Sixth Sunday of the Epiphany season and a “special welcome to any guests visiting with us today We are blessed by your presence and pray you are blessed as we worship together.

*This year Haven’s Annual meeting and meal will take place after worship on Sunday, February 26th. Our hope is that the change of meal time from evening to lunch will encourage more of us to stay for this wonderful time of community. So we have enough chicken, please let us know you are coming on your attendance form and then stop at the colorful, tropical bulletin board to pick out what you will bring to the feast. We hope to see you there!

*Haven’s Annual Report is available in the church lobby today. Please pick up a copy and read about last year’s efforts and activities. Bring any questions, concerns or suggestions to the Annual Meeting on February 26th. You are coming, right?

*Can you help the Evangelism Team to set up a Hospitality Ministry effort here at Haven? See the newsletter and the bulletin board in the narthex for information. A little of your time every month or so could do so much to welcome guests and extend God’s loving kindness. See Nancy Newkirk or other Evangelism members with any questions.
This week’s concerns and joys:
*Thanks to all who stayed for the special congregational meeting last Sunday. The motion passed unanimously and work on our expanded storage area will start later this month.

*Many thanks to all who made donations to our Souper Bowl Hunger collection. Here was Haven’s score: Falcons – $63.07; Patriots – $47.55; Neither – $116.73 WINNER: Micah’s Backpacks that will receive $227.35 and the hungry children who will be fed. Thank you again.
*Best wishes to Laura Manspeaker, Melita Kaplan, and Robert Snyder who celebrate birthdays this week.
