What is Happening This Week

Dear Church,


It’s another busy week at Holy Covenant! The youth are enjoying Youth Week; the Wesleyan Choir will resume rehearsals Wednesday night at 7 pm; several ministries meet this week (see below); Harvey’s Kids, which provides a much needed respite for parents of children with special needs, will meet from 5 to 8 pm on Saturday; and the Labyrinth group will lead the monthly Walk with Intention on Sunday beginning at 7 pm in the labyrinth on the east side of the sanctuary.

Join us!
