May 23, 2021 Sermon – Pentecost Sunday (pdf)

Announcements ~ May 23, 2021


A:      This is the day the Lord has made.

C:      Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

*God’s blessings this Pentecost Sunday. A special welcome to new and returning guests. We are honored by your presence and give God thanks that we can worship together.

*Today, after worship, we invite you to an outdoor “cookie fellowship” as we wave to our Sunday School children during their Drive-Thru celebration.

*Starting TODAY, thanks to a $5,000 matching gift, each one dollar you donate toward our Faith Building Together project will become $2. The matching will continue until the $5,000 has been matched or July 31st, whichever comes first. Thank you to this generous donor and to all whose donations will be matched.

*Those who ordered red geraniums are asked to please take them home after today’s worship. If you forgot how many you ordered, look on the mobile bulletin board in the hallway. Thanks for helping us to dress up our worship space for Pentecost.

*If you know of any Haven teens or young adults who are graduating from high school, college or grad school, please email or call the church office. We hope to celebrate our grads in June.

*This week Haven’s Re-Opening Team WILL be reviewing the latest CDC and Maryland guidelines for safely gathering for indoor events like worship. Until a recommendation is approved, we ask you to continue to wear a mask and practice social distancing during worship. Thanks for your patience. Thanks to for all who have been vaccinated.

This week’s concerns and joys:

*Best wishes to Maddie Haupt, Katie Muse, Lynda Byers and Scott Rhodes who celebrate birthdays this week.
