Dear Church,

This Sunday, November 12th will be Celebration Sunday when we will pledge our commitments to Holy Covenant for 2018. You should receive a pledge card in the mail this week. (There will be cards available Sunday as well.) We will also share a special Café 2:42 Breakfast together in the Covenant Center between worship services. Plan to attend!


LIFT (Ladies in Fellowship Together) will meet Thursday, November 9 at 6:30 pm at the home of Marilyn Paa. Go to www.hcumc.org for more information. Bring a snack or covered dish to share. Enjoy food, fellowship and a short devotional. If you do not have time to prepare a dish, please come anyway!


This week we are holding the last of the Family Meetings. Staff and Finance Team members are available at these meetings to answer any questions you may have regarding church finances. If you have not already attended one, please choose one of the meetings listed below.
