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.

August 13 Elm Haven Fellowship met for conversation over dinner in the Windsor Main Park.  The specialty for the day was home-churned ice cream which came after some wonderful dishes the members brought.  Ussually the 3rd Sabbath in a month is reserved for this, but schedules interfered so the after-church service potluck was moved up one week.
