God’s blessings to you this Easter Season. Welcome to Music Sunday, a celebration of God’s gift of music in our worship life. Special welcome to any guests visiting with us in person or on-line. It is a delight to worship together.

*The adult Sunday School class will meet this morning at 11:00 am. Today Pastor Kaplan will lead the class through the ELCA’s 1991 social statement on abortion. What is a Lutheran perspective on this controversial topic? Grab your coffee and treats and come join the discussion. All are welcome

*Red geranium orders for Pentecost are due next Sunday, May 22. Order envelopes are available in the narthex and on the parsonage back porch. You can also make an order by contacting the church office.

*Pentecost is on June 5th and weather-permitting, we will be celebrating worship and
the completion of a Sunday School year outdoors that day. We our planning some  surprises for this special time of worship, fellowship and refreshments. Be sure to bring your lawn chair! It’s a good day to invite a friend or neighbor!

*The Worship Team is trying to discover if there is an active interest in having a Saturday, 5:00 pm worship service during the summer. Please check your response on the attendance form today.

This week’s concerns and joys:

* Recently, Jim Conrad and Don Evason have had some trips to the hospital. Please keep them in prayer.

*We thank Steve Pastena for all his efforts to bring together musicians and vocalist for today’s Music Sunday worship service. We will also be singing hymns that make it to the top of our Favorite Hymn survey. We’ll publish the whole list in  the June newsletter. Hymns not sung today will be used in worship this May and summer.

*Thanks to Ed Distad, Nancy Newkirk and Pastor Alessandri for being Haven’s delegates at this year’s DE-MD Synod Assembly, where current Delaware-Maryland Synod Bishop, Bill Gohl was re-elected on the first ballot, receiving 341 of the 361 votes cast.

*Best wishes to Morgan Haupt, Emily Butsch, Ohna Baker, Ed Yelinek and Millie Strange who celebrate birthdays this week.

April 17, 2022 Sermon (Easter Sunday)

Announcements ~ April 17, 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.

*The celebration of our Risen Lord continues after worship as we share refreshments and fellowship across the lobby in the parlor. We ask children to please stay with parents until we call them for the Easter Egg Hunt.

*Those who sponsored lilies, tulips and hyacinths to decorate our sanctuary for Easter may pick up their flowers after worship today. If you have forgotten what you ordered, there is a list on the mobile message board. Thank you for bringing such beauty to our Easter worship.

*We are looking for a female Haven member OR a married couple to be our delegates at the 2022 DE-MD Synod Assembly May 12-14 in Ocean City. It is a wonderful opportunity for good worship and to hear what is going on in other Lutheran churches and our synod. This year there will also be the election of a Bishop. The costs for registration and lodgings are paid by the church. Please contact Pastor Alessandri or a Council member as soon as possible if you are interested so we can register.

*By the way, did we mention that there are over 400 eggs for this year’s Easter Egg Hunt!
Thanks for all you donated plastic eggs and treats. Haven’s Easter bunnies really appreciated it!

This week’s concerns and joys:

*Many thanks to all who donated food, money and time toward our Easter Food Baskets. Five Fountaindale families were very grateful. God’s work. Our hands.

*Additional thanks to the musicians, vocalists and pastors who led mid-week Lenten worship… to Kim Pile, the Worship Team and others who made our Agape Meal such a memorable evening…to the Altar Guild who faithfully prepare for our weekly worship… and Haven’s Worship Team for leading us through this transitional time after the last two years of COVID.

*One more note of gratitude: We thank our Parish Life and Worship Teams, Haven’s teens and families, the Property Team, Altar Guild, the choir and director, the Easter Lily cross contributors and all who helped prepare for today’s Easter Celebration. All glory to our Risen Lord.

*Best wishes to Susie Resh and Don Evason who celebrate birthdays this week.
