What is Happening This Week

3/27 – 4/2/2017


Dear Church,


This Saturday, April 1st, the Trustees will have a Church Work Day from 8 am to 1 pm. In order to spruce up the building and grounds for Easter, we need your help with some basic gardening and weeding outside and some cleanup of walls and windows inside.

This summer the youth of Holy Covenant UMC will have an opportunity to go on a mission trip and to church camp at Camp Bridgeport. These experiences can be powerful and formational in the lives of these young people. We are inviting you, our church family, to make an investment in their lives and in the world they create as they learn about, share, and live out the teachings of Jesus. You can purchase “stock” in our youth at a table in the Education Building this Sunday, or by making a donation at Online Donation. Just scroll down to Youth Ministries, enter the amount of your donation and type “stock sales” in the blank to the right. Thank you for your support and prayers.
