Word to the Wyes 4/8/21
A Collect for the Second Sunday of Easter
Almighty and everlasting God, who in the Paschal mystery established the new covenant of reconciliation: Grant that all who have been reborn into the fellowship of Christ’s Body may show forth in their lives what they profess by their faith; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Easter Day was a truly joyful day of reconnecting with parish family and friends. Just to encourage you – in-person service attendance included 76 people and 65 people attended via Facebook live. Thanks be to God. Alleluia!
Birthday blessings to Clyde Kelly. Anniversary blessings to Tom & Joanna Racdliffe.

Dear Haven Ministries Supporters,
Easter Blessings to you and our family!
Signs of spring are finally here with warm weather, beautiful flowers, decorative eggs, and tree blossoms. The signs of new life and Hope are all around us! During these times of renewal and inspiration, it is easy to sing praises and rejoice to God as we see Him in the beauty of spring!
It is during difficult times, however, when praises are hard to conjure, songs are far from our lips, and our thoughts are often bogged down with troubles. It is during these difficult times of people’s lives that Haven Ministries often enters. Through the practical means of providing food, shelter and resources, Haven Ministries ushers in Hope to the hopeless.
It is a Hope that God is always with us – loving us and providing for us. It is the message through actions that He will never leave us nor forsake us! God is our ultimate source of hope – no matter our circumstances! Even during dark times we can sing praises and rejoice because of this Hope – the Hope to come of renewal and new life! Oh sing to the Lord a new song!
Oh sing to the Lord a new song!
Sing to the Lord, all the earth.
Sing to the Lord, bless His name;
Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day.
Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples.
Psalm 96:1-3 NKJ
May your Easter be full of HOPE and the promise of new life!
