This Week at Old South Haven Church

    A snow  storm on a week end makes it necessary for a church  to make  the important decision of whether or not to cancel worship services and other activities..  Based on the information given to us, namely, that we could have the driveway and parking lot plowed early Sunday morning, we elected to have Sunday morning Worship. Then Sunday morning we learned that the plowing could not be done and we reversed our decision . I want to thank Kappy, and John for acting quickly on this reverse situation by not only getting the word out on e mail but also telephone calls made. We needed to be concerned, as well, about the Sunday afternoon AA meeting. I believe we reached our church worship attendees. A couple of AA newcomers did not receive the word and I extended apologies to them.
     If you want to receive the sermon that had been prepared, check the attachment. Printed copies will also be available this Sunday.

Sunday Worship Canceled.

Announcement: Sunday Worship & Annual Meeting Canceled.
        We have been informed that the church's parking lot and driveway will not be plowed in time for worship Sunday morning. Worship and the annual meeting are therefore canceled.

This Week at Old South Haven Church

        After receiving a weather report that our winter blizzard should end, or taper off, by early Sunday morning, and after hearing from the firm responsible for plowing out our church driveway that it would be plowed out prior to worship time on Sunday,  we have decided to hold worship tomorrow morning, and, if a quorum be present, to hold our Annual Meeting of the Congregational and Corporation.
                   Rev. Thomas J. Philipp
