A: Arise, shine; for your light has come,
C: And the glory of the LORD has risen upon us. (Isaiah 60:1)

*God’s blessings to all and a special welcome to any guests visiting with us today. We are blessed by your presence and pray you are blessed as worship together.

*Please note that there will be a Special Congregational Meeting on Sunday, February 5th immediately after worship. We will vote on a motion to provide the funding for the expansion of our storage area. See page 13 in your bulletin for more information and please make every effort to be here for the meeting.

*Today is the last day to sign up for this Thursday’s Ladies Night Out. The sign-up sheet is on the mobile message board.

*Have you signed up to host a coffee fellowship this year? That sign-up sheet for this meaningful community-builder is on the mobile message board, too.

*On February 5th the Souper Bowl for Hunger collection will return to Haven. That’s the
S-O-U-P-E-R Bowl and this year our collection will benefit Micah’s backpacks. Save your coins and bills to support this important ministry.

*On Saturday, February 11th at 10 am you are invited to a special opportunity we’re calling “Prayer 101.” Come learn and discuss prayer and experience several different types of prayer. So we are adequately prepared, please sign up to attend on the attendance sheet in your bulletin. Come feed your spirit. Friends, family and neighbors are also welcome.
This week’s concerns and joys:
*Inez Winebrenner is at Fahrney Keedy nursing center for physical therapy after falling. Visits and cards would be appreciated. Please keep Inez in prayer.

*Our seminary student, Greg Hartman and his wife Naomi are happy to announce the birth of their son Nicholas on January 9th. All those diapers and wipes we collected for them are being WELL used. Keep the Hartman family in prayer. Greg will return to Haven February 5th.

*Best wishes to Judy and Bruce Larson who had birthdays earlier this month and Abigail Andrews, Becca Mason, Kathy Pensis and Donna Hovermill who celebrate birthdays this week. Congratulations to Eric and Patty Byers whose wedding anniversary is Tuesday.
