What is Happening This Week

2/13 -2/19/2017


Dear Church,

Holy Covenant will provide and serve Youth First Family Dinner February 17th.

Youth First is a non profit organization for LGBTQ youth between the ages of 12-18 in Dallas and Holy Covenant will be providing a family dinner on February 17th. We will be serving ‘Breakfast for Dinner’ and the youth will participate in making their own original creations of smiley face pancakes! If you would like to help, we can use donations to help pay for the meal ingredients – $5.00 can pay for some fruit or snack items, or syrup and butter or Juices, $10 can buy the pancake mix or precooked bacon that we will reheat there, or the ingredients for egg casseroles. Any size donation will help us provide items that they can use to feed the kids during the week. If you would like to attend and help with the preparations please contact Rose Lovell  214-228-6665 or [email protected].  We will be collecting donations February 12th. Thanks for helping with this important ministry.

Holy Covenant will host Parents’ Night Out: Friday, February 17th from 6 to 9 pm in the Covenant Center for Ages Infant – 5th Grade. Reservations are required by noon on Wednesday, February 15th! Reserve a place for your child at www.hcumc.org.
