March 7, 2021 Sermon – Lent 3

Announcements ~ March 7, 2021

A:        Return to the Lord, your God, with all your heart.
C:        Return to the LORD who is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love.
                         (Joel 2: 12, 13)

Sisters and Brothers in Christ, welcome to worship at Haven Lutheran. We gather joyfully knowing the presence of our Lord is steadfast and sure.

 

*Flower orders for Easter are due TODAY. Directions for leaving your order are in your bulletin. There are empty envelopes in the narthex if you need one for your order.

 

*We ask everyone who is worshipping here at the church to PLEASE take several sets of offering envelopes to deliver to their owners. Present them in person or leave them in a bag on a door handle. The offering envelopes are in the narthex. It would save us a good deal of postage if you could help deliver them. Thank you.

 

*The March newsletter is available in the church narthex AND at Haven’s website. Be sure to view a copy.

 

*On the Wednesdays of Lent we are livestreaming a midweek worship service at 7:00 pm. We are using the Holden Evening Prayer and adding a brief meditation on Living into our Baptismal Promises. There are still copies of Holden Evening Prayer available in the narthex and on the parsonage back porch. Take a break and feed your faith each Wednesday of Lent.

 

*For you who are worshiping at home, please remember that there are hymnals, bulletins and blessed communion elements available to you at the parsonage back porch. Whether you are a member, friend or guest, we want you to be able to fully participate and enjoy worship.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This week’s concerns and joys:

*We thank everyone who helped to make last week’s Annual Congregational Meeting a quorum and productive, too.

 

*Best wishes to Jennifer Yaraghi and Candance Reynolds who have birthdays this week.
