A:      The Light shines in the darkness,

C:      and the darkness has not overcome it.                  (John 1:5)

 *Welcome to worship at Haven Lutheran Church as we celebrate the Baptism of our Lord.  Joyfully we come together to offer God our praise and prayers and receive God’s Word.

*2021 Offering Envelopes are available in the church narthex. For those not attending worship, we would ask you contact a member who is attending to pick up your envelopes for you OR contact Pastor Alessandri or the church office to arrange to pick them up at the parsonage back porch.

* Chairpersons of Haven Teams — after weeks of nagging, the deadline is here. Please submit your annual reports today. They will likely be very brief for this unusual year but needed all the same. Thank you.

*The Hagerstown Lions Club is collecting disinfecting wipes, White Socks and Toilet Paper for the REACH, cold weather shelter. Donations can be dropped off this Wednesday January 13th, at Otterbein United Methodist Church between 12 Noon-1:30pm or 4:30-6pm. You can also leave donated items on the parsonage back porch before Wednesday and we will see that they are delivered.

This week’s concerns and joys:

*Best wishes Eric Kagle, Sue Britton, Bruce Larson, Ned Strange, Hannah Tice and Dick Manspeaker who birthdays this week.
