Something BIG is coming to HCUMC!


God is making things happen within our church. We have numerous new families joining and bringing their passions with them. We have longer tenured members reigniting their passions. We have leadership leading us in focused and life changing ways. We have a nursery full of small children.

God is doing something BIG at Holy Covenant! The key is for each of us to Be aware of what God is doing so we become Ignited by the Spirit to create even more energy in the life our church and as we Go into our community.

One way we can see what God is doing is to enter into reflection. What is God doing at Holy Covenant? Why do I attend Holy Covenant? What has happened at Holy Covenant that has changed my life? What has happened through Holy Covenant that has changed someone else’s life?

The power that comes from reflection is found through the sharing of our answers with one another. When I hear what God is doing from your perspective and you from mine, we have a wider scope of God’s presence and power in our midst.

This summer, we are all going to get our chance to record our answers to these reflection questions or to share our faith stories. In Room 108 in the Covenant Center, a video booth will be set up on Sunday mornings for each of us to stop in and share our answers. We will use these edited videos this fall for sharing our collective story of God’s work in and through our church family.

Through the telling and hearing of these stories, we will experience is the exhilaration of knowing that God is doing something “BIG” at Holy Covenant!
