Care Groups and Bible Studies:
Our Ladies' & Men's Bible Studies are every Tuesday @ 9:30am.
The ladies have started a second study on the book of Esther!
The men's group is continuing their study, "Unshakable Hope".
Doug Hill's Care Group is on Sundays, with a study on the book of Philippians.
Roy Smyth's Care Group is on Mondays, with a study on the book of John.
Pastor Chris began his care group on March 16th, and will continue every second Thursday after then.
Member's Annual Meeting March 26th, 2023
Safe Haven is holding the Member's Annual Meeting on Sunday March 26th following the morning service. This is an extremely important meeting as there will be presentations and a question & answer period. We have proxy forms for any member who is unable to be in attendance. Pursuant to the Constitution we would like to present two new potential ELDERS for your consideration. The candidates are as follows:
Roy Douglas and Huntley Cowie
March 22nd - Marjorie Haynes
March 24th - Dawn Loney
If you would like to have your name included in our birthday announcements or if you do not want your name shown, please contact Sid at email@example.com. We do not need the year you were born.
Wednesday Night Prayer & Praise Meeting:
We had a fantastic time on Wednesday, diving into some prayer. We have new people each and every week, and our numbers are growing (don't be concerned there is always room for more). This Wednesday we are having some worship as well as prayer. It is a great time to fellowship with our Lord. ALL ARE WELCOME!
Join us on Wednesday Nights at 7pm at 82 Church St., for a time of prayer and some worship. We are so excited to see God moving on Wednesday nights so far! It is very encouraging and we would love to see you there.
A New Replacement to Faithlife - SUBSPLASH:
We have come to an arrangement to transition from Faithlife to Subsplash in the coming weeks. This application is far superior to Faithlife, with many more features and potentially less usage fees. With this change we will have an updated Website and Church app. We would like to get your ideas and suggestions on what you would like to have, that will improve our ministry application.
In addition, if you can volunteer your help and/or expertise to assist other volunteers to create the best ever site for Safe Haven, please let us know.
Please send in your thoughts or assistance to Doug Hill or any of the Elders. Together we can make our new application work for everyone!

Youth & Sunday School:
FRIDAY NIGHT YOUTH
Hey everyone! I am really happy for all that came out last Friday. We had a good time diving into 1st Corinthians, and this week we will be talking about knowledge and humbling ourselves.
A reminder to everyone to stay tuned for the email about our upcoming bowling event. We will be having our youth this Friday at 7pm as usual.
We are happy to keep things going as usual for Sunday School. I just wanted to take this time to thank the wonderful teachers that have been working and volunteering to make sure we have Sunday School each and every week. They truly are awesome!
