What is Happening This Week 11/10-11/13/22

Happy Thursday!  

Hope you are enjoying our last warm day for a bit – finally cooler fall temperatures are arriving!  

We have a very special Sunday planned for everyone! We will have worship at 10:30 in the sanctuary and livestreaming with an amazing musical piece with choir, bells, organ and brass! It will be a great treat! We will have a lunch for everyone during our annual auction event. There are items in a raffle, in a silent auction and a live auction. It is a great deal of fun and full of great options from Dallas sporting events, to vacation locations and items by our own Holy Covenant artists. The Cowboys game is at 3:25, so you have no excuse to miss this fun event!  

I will look forward to greeting you on Sunday!  

Shalom Blessings,
Pastor Cheryl
