April 24, 2022

A:      This is the day the Lord has made.

C:      Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

*A most blessed and happy Easter season to all. A special welcome to guests visiting with us in person or on-line. It is a delight to worship together.

*The Adult Sunday School WILL meet today at 11 am. All are welcome.

*The Haven Hallelujahs will be bowling today at 2 pm to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters. You can still make a donation today using the envelopes at Sign-up Central and putting it in the larger envelope pinned to the bulletin board. Please make checks out to Big Brothers Big Sisters. Wish us luck… or at least that we don’t embarrass ourselves.

*There will be a COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters available here at Haven on Tuesday, 4 to 7 p.m. Yes, second boosters are also available. Please pass the word.

*Pastor Alessandri will be leaving this afternoon for some time with her family. In her absence, contact Pastor Lee Brumback of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church for pastoral care. Please keep Pastor Alessandri in prayer, that her travels are safe and her time offers her refreshment.

*Next Sunday children from pre-school to fifth grade are invited to be a God Squad Explorer and take an adventure in Nature. Bring kids and grandkids to enjoy the adventure in faith and fun.

This week’s concerns and joys:

*We are sad to report that Haven member Sari Kilheffer died Friday morning under Hospice Care in Minnesota. There will be a celebration of Sari’s life here in Maryland in the future. Notes of condolences can be sent to Sari’s daughter, Holly. Her address is on the mobile message board. Please keep Sari’s family in prayer.

*Here are a couple of joys to celebrate
(1) As of April 18, $85,700.30 has been donated toward our $100,000 building loan.
AND (2)  Haven sent  $7,875 to Lutheran World Relief to benefit our brothers and sisters in Ukraine and the neighboring countries that are helping the Ukrainian refugees.  That will be $15,750 once matching funds are added!

*Best wishes to Anna Bergschnieder, Ed Distad, Bill Byers and Tanner Creek who celebrate birthdays this week.
