What is Happening This Week 1/27-1/30/22

Holy Covenant Family,  

At the beginning of this week my niece posted: Welcome to January 74th. And although January has 31 days, it has really felt like a very long month this year! So many of us have been impacted with illness and allergies. I hope and pray February will be a month of healing and wellness returning!  

As I’m writing this note, the ECDP Preschoolers are visiting with all kind of reptiles in the sanctuary! I hope none are left behind for worship on Sunday! The voices of children and the participation in a wonderful Rainforest Week has been such a joy! Kammie Powell created the activities this week and has led a team of volunteers to engage our little ones in such an adventure! There has been such excitement!  

I look forward to greeting you all on Sunday. We are going to be reflecting on forgiveness. So many times the forgiveness we hold creates bonds that hold us.  Jesus spends time directly speaking about forgiveness. Hope you will join us in the sanctuary, if you are feeling safe in doing so, at 8:30 am and 10:30 am or live streaming at 10:30 am from your home.  

May February begin with renewed hope on Tuesday!  

Shalom Blessings,
Pastor Cheryl
