Celebration of Love & Thanks for Pastor Carol
June 14 5 – 6 pm
Holy Covenant parking lot
As we all are aware, Pastor Carol has been reappointed and will be leaving Holy Covenant the end of June. She has given us so much love, support, positive messages and laughter. Now it is time for us to show our appreciation and give some love back to her. On June 14, 2020 from 5 – 6 PM, there will be a parade of Love and Thanks for Pastor Carol through the parking lot of Holy Covenant.
Plan on decorating your cars, your bikes, your trucks and make some noise for Pastor Carol to let her know how much we care and will miss her. We will have a photo mat for you to sign and we will collect cards and notes for Pastor Carol.  
For further information, call or text Sharon Gonzales at 972-849-1355.  
-Your SPPR Committee!  
If you cannot be at the parade:  
-Give a Love Offering! We will be use the funds for our Pastoral Transition to cover gifts for Pastor Carol, parade expenses and a welcoming celebration for Pastor Cheryl Murphy. When giving online select OTHER and specify Pastor Carol or Pastoral Transition.  
-Cards, Notes and Letters Send your card or note to Holy Covenant (1901 E. Peters Colony Rd., Carrollton, TX 75007) or you can email your message to Sharon Gonzales at [email protected] who will pass it along.
