What is Happening This Week

11/7 – 11/13/16


Dear Church,


You are all invited to a Family Meeting in the sanctuary this Sunday, November 13 following the 8:30 or 11:00 Worship Service. 

Please make every effort to attend one of these meetings. This is an important meeting for all involved in the life of Holy Covenant. Our future depends on YOU!

LIFT (Ladies In Fellowship Together) is this Thursday, November 10th at 6:30 pm at the home of Lois Eaton. Go to www.hcumc.org for more information. Bring a snack or covered dish to share. We will enjoy food, fellowship and a short devotional. If you do not have time to prepare a dish, please join us anyway – we want you with us! Come join us for this time of fellowship!  

Holy Covenant’s next Blood Drive is this Sunday, November 13 from 9 am to 1 pm in the Covenant Center. Please consider making a donation.


Pastor Carol

Coat Drive


It’s time to clean out your closet of unused coats and jackets to contribute to the HCUMC Coat Drive. We have provided warm coats and jackets to Metrocrest Social Services for distribution at their Holiday Store in the past and will continue that tradition again this year. The drive starts November 1 and concludes December 4. There will be boxes in the Education building for collection. We need coats and Jackets for all ages.


We have arranged with Basil’s Cleaners to clean coats requiring dry cleaning. If a coat is machine washable, please wash before contributing it.


Contact Colleen Evans with any questions.
