Lend a Hand/Lend a Hammer

Holy Covenant is partnering with the City of Carrollton to assist residents with minor home repair issues. Mark your calendars now for October 2-3 and 9-10.  On these two weekends (Friday and Saturday), Holy Covenant volunteers will gather their hammers,
paintbrushes, and yard tools to help our neighbors. We will gather at the church at 9 am and be assigned work areas. Teams will disperse to their sites, and spend the day completing their tasks. There will be a break for lunch, which will be provided. We are looking for individuals to assist on the worksites, but also need help in the kitchen! Sign up at the Service Station. Children 13 to 18 will be allowed to participate if parents sign a waiver. The sites will be nearby so you can volunteer for a few hours, or a few days.  We need all the help we can get for our neighbors in need.


Tamale Sale       On Sunday, September 27th, Maria Soto will be selling tamales in between and after worship services. 

There is an order form at the Service Station in the Education Building.  Proceeds will go toward paying off Elijah’s tombstone.
