July 5, 2020 Sermon


July 5, 2020

(Outdoor Worship)
A:       Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth.
C:      Worship the LORD with gladness                            (Psalm 100: 1-2a)

 * God’s blessings to all this Fourth of July weekend and welcome to worship at Haven Lutheran Church.

*Next Sunday, weather permitting, we will try adding communion to our Drive-up and Outdoor worship service. We will do all we can to use safe practices to bring communion to those seated on the lawn and to those in cars. We will ask for your patience as we try yet another new thing in worship. But what a blessing it will be to receive our Lord in holy communion once again.

*There will be an abbreviated July newsletter coming out this week. It will have news about worship and Haven’s School Supply Community Project. We will have copies available next Sunday.

*TODAY we open our Harvest for Hunger table…. well, actually a cart this year.  For a freewill offering, you may help yourself to yellow squash, zucchini and zucchini breads. All proceeds will be divided between local and ELCA hunger projects. Anyone is welcome to bring some extra vegetables or homemade baked good to offer on the Harvest for Hunger table.

This week’s concerns and joys:

*Pastor Dave Kaplan has been moved to Fahrney-Keedy to continue his physical therapy after his hip surgery. Please pray for his patience and healing. Cards can be sent to his at Fahrney Keedy.

*Best wishes to Terry Trovinger, Robert Webb and Charlotte Loveless who celebrate birthdays this week. Congratulations to Sharon and Larry Hartsock. Jamie and Jim Cannon and Stephanie and Eric Meredith who have wedding anniversaries this week.
