Sister Rachelle Alves has given her Elm Haven Fellowship Famiy an invitation to a "10 Days of Prayer" event as follows:
"Please join us for 10 days of prayer January 25-February 4, 2017. The first prayer session will be at 7:00 p.m. at the Greeley SDA church. We will be praying for revival, conversions, renewed passion for evangelism, and healed relationships. We believe your life and the lives of those you pray for will be changed as you join fellow church members in praying for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. We will have a short meeting after potluck this Sabbath for those that are interested in helping. Contact Rachelle Alves at 970-590-7133 for more information." (More general information is also available online at: http://tendaysofprayer.org/ This site was quite informative)
Elm Haven Fellowship on Sabbath December 24 featured a nice program of talented young people, and some of us "young at heart." Pictured below one of the youth performs in celebration of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ becoming one of us, to ultimately die in our place to save us from our sin and eternal death. Right in the middle of the program we were pleased to see one of our own, Doug Saathoff, join the Windsor Seventh-day Adventist Church by profession of faith, as he had already accepted Christ as his Saviour and had been baptized.
On December 17, with temperatures approaching zero, about 30 members departed "pot-luck" dinner at the Windsor Rec. Center to go Christmas carolling outside a local supermarket. Many shoppers stopped and sang along for a moment or two. Others grabbed a smartphone photo of the Elm Haven Fellowship Group. "There were many smiling and appreciative faces," a member reported. Three of the group handed out Christmas gift packets with "The Faith of Desmond Doss" pocket book, a Bible study card, a flyer describing upcoming events planned for the community, and an attached candy cane. Pastor John Martin said, "I think that the Lord's blessings rested on our caroling outreach."

Jesus will indeed come the second time. Apostle John recorded the promise Jesus made not long before His death for our sins: "Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also." (John 14: 1-3) In a short time following His death and ressurection Jesus did ascend to heaven as he spoke to a group of disciples. Two men in white apparel told them He would return in like manner as they saw Him go up into heaven. A cloud received Him out of their sight. (Acts 1:9-11) He will not come in secret. Apostle Paul wrote, "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first." (1 Thess. 4:16) And in Revelation John relays, "Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him." (Rev. 1:7) Let us get on Jesus' side. Repent, accept, follow and obey His commandments. He will give us the power in our lives to overcome sin. Let's be ready to greet Him whether resurrected from the grave or alive and changed, in the twinkling of an eye at that great day! We think that time is getting close!

September 24 at Schraeder's place, there occurred what has become an annual classic. Elm Haven Fellowship and friends gathered for Sabbath sundown worship with hymn singing and words from Pastor John Martin. A bonfire was lit and there was food to eat and toast over the coals. And for the second time in as many years, out of the kindness of their hearts, the Donnybrook Girls treated the group to old favorite hymns accompanied by their instruments while the Elm Haven folks sang along. The Donnybrook Girls group was made up of Northern Colorado's Pirate Radio owner, Brett Reese, and part of his family. They had performed at the same venue the previous year and were gladly received once again this year.
