Safe Haven Community Church News
From Pastor Chris Platteel:
This Sunday's Message:
In the message this coming Sunday March 12th, entitled, "Wind and Fire", we'll explore What and Who the Spirit is, how the Spirit is revealed in the Old and New Testaments, as well as the role of the Holy Spirit in the lives of God's people. How can I receive more of the spirit? How can we deepen our walk with the Holy Spirit? Join us this Sunday, in person or online to worship God: "Come Holy Spirit we need You."
Pastor Chris and Henny's Care Group:
The new Care Group, "Following Jesus", offered by Chris and Henny Platteel will be starting Thursday March 16th at 7:00pm. We'll meet every other Thursday.
We will be using the Jitsi Meet video program on your laptop computer, cell phone or Notepad. We'll help you get this set up. This group will include learning from the Bible, but the main focus will be on Caring for one another as the Holy Spirit leads us.
