What is Happening This Week 7/8-7/11/21

Happy July!
Hope you had a wonderful Fourth of July weekend! We enjoyed spending time with family at last!  

The Holy Covenant sanctuary building remains closed this week due to the HVAC installation. There have been unexpected delays but they should be up and cooling by worship on Sunday morning! We are grateful for the leadership of John Paul Mays and the Trustees oversight. Watch for new plantings to surround our sign on the corner!  

Be sure to welcome Heather Hinton, our new Preschool Director! We are thrilled she is officially on board. The teachers are working to prepare their classrooms for a new school year!  

Hope you will join us for worship on Sunday!
We will be outside at 8:30.
We will gather in the sanctuary and livestream at 10:30.
Some of the classes are beginning to meet in their cool classrooms!
The Food Pantry will be open from noon-1:00 pm.
The Youth are having a pool party at the Davis’ house!
Hope you will connect with us if you are in town!  

I look forward to greeting you on Sunday!  

Shalom Blessings,
Pastor Cheryl
