January 17, 2021 Sermon


A:      The Light shines in the darkness,

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

 *Welcome to worship at Haven Lutheran as we joyfully come together to offer God our praise and prayers and to receive God’s gifts for us.

*We welcome those who are worshipping with us from their homes as worship is live streamed today. So you can more fully participate in our worship, hymnals, bulletins and communion elements are available at the parsonage back porch each Friday after 2 pm. If you have no transportation, please contact Pastor Alessandri or the church office so we can arrange for a volunteer to drop off worship supplies. We ARE the one body of Christ!

*2021 Offering Envelopes are available in the church narthex. For those not attending worship at this time, please contact Pastor Alessandri or the church office to arrange to pick up your envelopes at the parsonage back porch or have them delivered by another member.

* A reminder to Council Members that there is a Zoom Council meeting tomorrow at 7 pm. Reports, minutes and agenda are being e-mailed so you may read them before the meeting. Thank you for your service.









This week’s concerns and joys:

*Best wishes Frank Getz, Abigail Andrews and Rebecca Mason who celebrate birthdays this week.
