A:       I will thank you, O Lord my God, with all my heart,
C:   and glorify your name forevermore.                                   (Psalm 86:12)
* God’s blessings to all of you and welcome to worship at Haven Lutheran Church.

*What a joy to have sisters and brothers in Christ from Trinity Lutheran Church here to worship with us this morning. We are blessed by your presence and hope you are blessed as we worship together.

*We also grateful for our guest preacher, Pastor Bruce Barth. We look forward to receiving what the Lord has asked you to tell us today. Thank you for being here.

*Haven’s School Supply Outreach is moving forward. School supplies are being ordered for 72 students at Fountaindale Elementary, 24 students at Northern Middle and 24 students at Western Heights Middle school. Thanks to all those who have sponsored students and made donations to this community Outreach. Now we are working on how to get the supplies to the schools in way that would be most helpful. Please keep our schools, the students, families, teachers and staff in your prayers.

*Read your bulletin to find out about the rescheduled Bowl for Kids event to benefit Big Brothers and Big Sisters. Pastor Alessandri will lead a team if there is interest.

*Haven currently has an on-line meal train schedule set up to provide Ann Lochbaum a meal every other day while she is recovering from back surgery. If you would like to provide a meal, please contact the church office and we will connect you to the website where you can sign-up

*Our Harvest for Hunger cart will be pushed back on the sidewalk after worship. We have extra vegetables from the garden and homemade breads. Take what you’d like and leave a free will offering. All proceeds are divided between local and ELCA hunger projects.

This week’s concerns and joys:

*Best wishes to Haven members: Don Blickenstaff, Sr, Melissa Butsch, Will Seilhamer, Craig Meredith and Dave Resh …. And Trinity members, Elizabeth Dagliano, Caroline Bradford and Courtney Clark who celebrate birthdays this week.  Congratulations to Sue and Cliff Britton and Curt & Inga Dudda who have wedding anniversaries this week.
