Dear Friends and Members of Old South Haven Church,

I hope that you are all well and keeping safe.  Again, we will not be having a church service this coming Sunday, March 29, 2020.  Pastor Ralph Wright has prepared a Bulletin for you to read; and I have included it below as well as attaching it to this email.

Please continue to reach out to our fellow members and friends!

PRELUDE
RINGING OF THE CHURCH BELL
INTROIT
CALL TO WORSHIP                                          
  Leader:     The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the
                  fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
 PEOPLE:  And also with you.
  Leader:     Those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the
                   things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit
       set their minds on the things of the Spirit.
  PEOPLE:  To set the mind on the flesh results in death, but to set
                   the mind on the Spirit results in life and peace.
  Leader:      Those who are led by God's Spirit are God's children, the
                   spirit dwells in them and gives life to their mortal bodies.
  PEOPLE:  The Spirit that God gives does not make us slaves or
                  cause us to fear. 
  Leader:     The Spirit allows us to call out to God, "Abba, Father". in
                  the knowledge that we are heirs with Christ to all his blessings.
  UNISON:  All this is the gift of God's love to us.  Blessed be his name,
                  now and forevermore.
 
* HYMN OF PRAISE   #341      "Blessed Assurance, Jesus is Mine"          
WELCOME
CALL TO CONFESSION
Leader:  Let us humbly confess our sins unto Almighty God.
PRAYER OF INTERCESSION AND CONFESSION
Eternal God, whose covenant with us is never broken, we confess that we fail to fulfill your will.  Though you have bound yourself to us, we will not bind ourselves to you.  In Jesus Christ you serve us freely, but we refuse your love and withhold ourselves from others.  We do not love you fully or love one another as you command.  In your mercy, forgive and cleanse us.  Give us strength to serve you faithfully until the promised day of resurrection, when, with the redeemed of all the ages, we will feast with you at your table in glory.  This we pray through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen. 
MOMENT OF SILENT CONFESSION

ASSURANCE OF PARDON 
   Leader:     Who is in a position to condemn?  Only Christ, and Christ died for
                    us, Christ rose for us, Christ reigns in power for us, Christ prays for
                    us.  Believe the good news of the Gospel:
  PEOPLE:  We thank you O Lord that in Jesus Christ we are forgiven!  We
                    pray for strength to forgive one another.  Amen. 
* GLORIA PATRI   #579
PASSING OF THE PEACE
Leader:    Since God has forgiven us in Christ, let us forgive one another.
                Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts since as members of one
                body you were called to peace.  The peace of Christ be with you.
PEOPLE:  And also with you. Amen.
           (Because of health concerns, it is suggested that we refrain from
                           shaking hands during the Passing of the Peace)
CHILDREN'S SERMON
PRAYER FOR ILLUMINATION
Leader:     Lord, open our hearts and minds by the power of Your Holy Spirit, that
                  as the Scriptures are read and Your Word is proclaimed, we may hear
                  with joy what You say to us today.  Amen.
FIRST LESSON                            Hebrew Testament:      Psalm 130
   Leader:     This is the Word of our Lord.
   PEOPLE:  THANKS BE TO GOD.  AMEN.
* HYMN   # 276         "Great Is Thy Faithfulness"       
SECOND LESSON                      Gospel:            John 11:1-45
   Leader:      This is the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
   PEOPLE:   THANKS BE TO GOD.  AMEN.
SERMON                        "The Raising of Lazarus"                   Rev. Ralph Wright
* AFFIRMATION OF FAITH    "A Creed"  United Church of Canada
   We are not alone, we live in God's world.
   We believe in God: who has created and is creating,
       who has come in Jesus, the Word made flesh,
       to reconcile and make new,
       who works in us and others by the Spirit.
   We trust in God.
       We are called to be the Church,
       to celebrate God's presence,
       to live with respect in creation,
       to love and serve others,
       to seek justice and resist evil,
       to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen,  our Judge and our Hope.
       In life, in death, in life beyond death, God is with us.   We are not
       alone.  Thanks be to God.  Amen

This week at Old South Haven Church

This Week at Old South Haven            March 27, 2020
Even when the congregation of a church is unable to meet, there are still bills to pay (utilities, insurance, telephone service, alarm monitoring, etc.).
As a regular giver, you may have wondered what options are available for making your contributions to Old South Haven other than by placing your donation in the collection plate during a Sunday worship service.
Here are two:
1. If you use your bank's "Bill Pay" feature, you may also use it to make your contribution to the church. When you use your financial institution's "Bill Pay" feature, your financial institution will mail a check to Old South Haven. To use this method, enter the payee as "Old South Haven Presbyterian Church." For the address, enter:
Assistant Financial Secretary
Old South Haven Presbyterian Church
P.O. Box 203
Brookhaven, NY 11719-0203
Your check will be delivered by USPS to the church's post office box, then retrieved and given to the Assistant Financial Secretary for recording and deposit.
2. If you don't use "Bill Pay," or don't want to, you may simply mail your check to the address shown in Method 1. To make it easier for you, an addressed envelope, with a stamp, is being mailed to all our regular donors.
Thank you!
Richard Thomas, Treasurer John Deitz, Financial Secretary

This week at Old South Haven Churdh

This Week at Old South Haven            January 2, 2020

Members and Friends of Old South Haven-
As this will be my final This Week bulletin to you, let me take just a moment to say that it has been an honor, privilege and a pleasure to serve with you over these last months. As in any relationship that matters, I have learned much from you and treasured many moments from time with the children of the church, to sitting at table with the Lunch Bunch and church potlucks, and most especially in our gathered worship. You have at times been an inspiration and at others frustrating but that is because we are all human and relationships take work to thrive. As I leave you know that I will carry you in my heart for you are now and always a part of my life's journey.
My hope for you as the journey of Old South Haven continues is that you will carry on being a light in the community. That you will stretch yourselves, take some risks, so that all will come to see that you are a community of faith with open hearts, open minds that is anchored in Christ's love for all.
In Christ,
Pastor Karen

PER CAPITA is "the tie that binds" — annual support that unites the entire church in the ongoing and essential work that guides the Office of the General Assembly, the life of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and benefits every congregation and every mid council ministry. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, the Office of the General Assembly encourages the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) to be a people of hope. The 2020 Per Capita is $8.95 for the General Assembly, $4.10 for the Synod of the Northeast, and $25.00 for the Presbytery of Long Island for a total of $38.05 for each member of OSH. We pay our full per capita assessment. Every designated contribution to the Per Capita assessment means more funds available for ministry here at OSH.

Farewell Potluck on Sunday January 12. Please join us as we say farewell to Pastor Karen. You are asked to bring a side dish. Everything else will be provided.

Pastor Karen will be honorably retired by the Presbytery of Long Island at its January 25, 2020 meeting to be held at Bethany Presbyterian Church (425 Maplewood Rd, Huntington Station).
