Members and Friends –
It gives me great joy to invite you to worship with us this Palm Sunday. As we begin our Holy Week journey to the cross and beyond; we will also be celebrating the ministry of the Rev. Jeanne Baum as we confer on her the honor of Pastor Emeritus of Old South Haven Presbyterian Church. Join us as we welcome her home to a congregation she (and husband Bob) served faithfully and well. And wave a palm while shouting Hosanna!

One Great Hour of Sharing Offering – Your generous contribution to this annual offering goes to make a difference in the lives of those seeking to build a better life, those facing starvation, hunger and food insufficiency, and those desperately needing assistance in the wake of disaster. (Self-Development of People, Presbyterian Hunger Program and Presbyterian Disaster Assistance)
Mark YOUR Calendar for Sunday, May 5th—Why? The members of the Session invite you to join them in the first of 4 annual meetings to listen, focus, discuss and lay out plans for the work of Old South Haven. OSH is small, the Session even smaller. So we need to come together to go forward in ministry together. On May 5th our focus will be on Mission – in our neighborhood, our nation and our world. We are looking for hands-on ideas and where we should put our monetary gifts to the best use. Be there in the gallery following fellowship time.
STAKES in the Lawn -- Keep an eye out for the three red tagged stakes on our lawn. Soon there will be three new trees in their place. The trees will come to us courtesy of the Brookhaven Village Association.
The 2019 Per Capita Assessment is $38.05 per member of Old South Haven. It is broken down as follows: $8.95 to the General Assembly, $4.10 to the Synod of the Northeast and $25.00 to the Presbytery of Long Island. 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 (USA) and benefits every congregation and every mid-council ministry. Old South Haven remits the full per capita assessment. You can help free funds for other purposes here at Old South Haven by paying your individual per capita. Mark checks or envelopes for 'per capita." Many Thanks to those of you who have already paid your per capita.
