Announcements – March 17, 2019

A:       Teach me your way, O Lord, C:      that I may walk in your truth.

Good morning, Church! God’s blessings to all this Second Sunday of Lent and a special welcome to any guests visiting with us today. We pray you blessed as we worship together.

*This Wednesday we continue our Lenten midweek suppers and worship. Soup and sandwiches at 6 pm. Worship at 7 p.m. This year our theme is “Behold the Tree — Behold the Cross” Pastor Lee Brumback will continue the series with a message about Moses’ encounter with God at the burning bush. Come for supper or for worship or both as part of your Lenten adventure.

*TODAY is the DEADLINE for ordering Easter flowers. You can find order envelopes in the Narthex. If you want to help adorn the sanctuary at Easter and take the flowers home after worship, be sure to submit your order today!

*Haven’s own Aura Harbaugh is playing Linus in “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown” at Smithsburg High school this Friday (7:30 pm), Saturday (7:30 pm) and Sunday (2:30 pm). It’s a musical for all ages. Tickets are $8. Proceeds benefit the Smithsburg High School Drama Club. Contact Call 240-217-9765 or email

This week’s concerns and joys:

*We just found out that Sharon Hartsock is at the Homewood Nursing Center for physical therapy after back surgery. Her address is on the mobile message board. Send her a card to let her know her Haven family is thinking of her. And, of course, keep her in prayer.

*Pam O’Connor is currently at Meritus Medical Center for testing. Phone calls, visits, cards and prayers will be appreciated.

*Best wishes to Valerie Wills, Inez Winebrenner, Hazel Gaurmer and Brenda Hassinger who celebrate birthdays this week.
