(Outdoor Worship)
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.

*Next Friday, July 17th, we will add a third, weekend option for worship here at Haven. At 5 p.m. on Fridays, we will have our summer, spoken worship service with holy communion here in the sanctuary. We will ask everyone to wear masks and to sit in designated areas for proper social distancing. If you come, please be patient as we work out any complications we did not anticipate. In any case, God WILL be worshipped!

We will also continue to offer worship at 9:30 am on Sundays on line and at a Drive-up and Outdoor worship service.
Staying close to our Lord and one another in worship is essential to our wellbeing. Let God’s Word and love be poured into our hearts, minds and spirits in worship each weekend.

*Our Harvest for Hunger cart is officially open. For a freewill offering, you may help yourself today to a yellow squash, two different varieties of zucchini and zucchini breads. All proceeds will be divided between local and ELCA hunger projects. You are also invited to bring any bounty from your garden or ovens to put on the Harvest for Hunger card.

This week’s concerns and joys:

*Here are the updates on those who had recent surgeries.
Pastor Dave Kaplan was discharged from Fahrney Keedy yesterday to continue his hip surgery recovery at home. He will be letting us know if he needs rides or meals as soon as he gets settled.

Charlotte Loveless recovers at home from elbow surgery to repair damage after a fall walking her neighbor’s dog.

Ann Lochbaum’s son Mark, tells us the surgeon was pleased with Ann’s back surgery at Mercy Hospital. Ann will stay in Mercy Hospital for several weeks of physical therapy.
Please keep Ann, Charlotte and Pastor Dave in prayer. Cards and notes of encouragement are always welcome.

*Best wishes to Jackie Webb and June Hess who celebrate birthdays this week. Congratulations to Susie and Dave Resh who have a wedding anniversary this Tuesday
