HAGERSTOWN SUNDAY SCHOOL ORCHESTRA WILL BE AT HAVEN NEXT SUNDAY
October 2nd  9:00 am Gathering Room

Plan to be at church early next Sunday for a wonderful musical treat. The conductor and musicians of the Sunday School orchestra are so very talented and the music they make never ceases to amaze. What a great way to prepare for worship —- filled with gratitude and beautiful music. Let’s show our appreciation for this gift with our presence at 9 a.m. in the Gathering Room next Sunday. Hope to see you there!

 

PACKING OR DELIVERING VOLUNTEERS NEEDED.
Most weeks we plan to deliver 12 Micah backpacks for children at Fountaindale Elementary School. That means twelve local children living in food-insecure households will have some food for the weekend.
There is a sign-up sheet in the Narthex of the church for you to volunteer to help either pack the backpacks here at Haven OR deliver the backpacks to Fountaindale Elementary School. You can do it solo, with a friend or as a family. Neither packing nor delivering takes much time, but means so much.

GET READY GOD SQUAD EXPLORERS
FOR ANOTHER ADVENTURE

next Sunday, October 2nd, 11:00 am

I hear God is having a party!
WOW! Come check it out!

 

SEEING THE HOLY IN THE ORDINARY
Adult Sunday School
October 2 & 9, 11:00 am

Holiness often comes wrapped in the ordinary. The glory of God is around us and in us. We may have learned “God is everywhere,” but do we see it? How do we recognize God’s holiness, beauty and presence in our everyday and let it come into our hearts and faith?

If this sounds like gibberish or if this sounds like something for which your spirit has longed, come to the Adult Sunday School class this October to consider, discuss and experience God’s nearness in the ordinary.  I hope to meet you there.
Pastor Linda Alessandri

THE CHURCH OFFICE IS BACK TO

PRE-COVID HOURS

MONDAY – FRIDAY

9:00 am – 1:00 pm 

 

COULD YOU HELP LARRY AND SHARON HARTSOCK ATTEND CHURCH? Sharon and Larry live at 1208 Outer Drive, and can no longer drive. If you could periodically offer them a ride to church, they would be greatly appreciative. They miss their church family.

If you are able to occasionally pick up Sharon and Larry, please call the church office (301-733-5056). We will put together a list and give it to the Hartsocks who can then use it to arrange for rides at your convenience.  Thank you so very much.
