Dear Church,

Tomorrow is not only Valentine’s Day, but also Ash Wednesday! Worship will begin at 7:00 pm in the sanctuary. We hope you will join us as we enter into Lent during this meditative service including the imposition of ashes. We will begin the Lent series Finding Our Way Through the Wilderness.

This Friday, February 16th, Holy Covenant will host a Parents’ Night Out from 6-9 pm in the Covenant Center for ages Infant – 5th Grade. Reservations are required by Wednesday, February 14! Reserve a place for your child at hcumc.org. You may drop off and pick up children anytime during the designated hours. $10 per child; $25 max per same family. 

This Sunday, February 18th, we will have another Café 2:42 Breakfast Fundraiser at 9:45 am in the Covenant Center. You may stay and eat in the Covenant Center or “grab and go” to your Sunday School class. All donations are appreciated!
