*Welcome to worship and a special welcome to guests visiting with us today. We pray you are blessed as we worship together.

*All hands on deck! Haven’s Third Annual Block Party and School Supply Giveaway is coming Saturday, August 19th. Plan to volunteer, enjoy the fun and “reach out with love to our community.”

*The collection of school supplies for our August giveaway is underway. There are plenty of sales, too. Please take a tag from the mobile message board — you can take an item needed or take a list for one of the grades and buy the supplies for one of our gift packs. Have a part in equipping our children for a successful year in school.

*Received any gifts that don’t quite fit your taste or home that are sitting in a closet or basement? We could use them as prizes for Bingo at our Block Party. Bring them to Haven and make someone very happy on August 19th.

*You will find an update from the Search Team for our next Organist/Choir Director in the bulletin. Interviews were completed on Friday. Auditions will be scheduled for this week. Please keep the search in your prayers
