Holy Covenant Family!  

We have a new baby in our family! Such a joy! Such a blessing! Killian Sammis Murphy was born 5-11-22 – such a cool date! I will share a picture (or 2) on Sunday. Everyone is well! And Kristen is thrilled to have that second heart beat on its’ own!  

Join us on Sunday for worship outside at 8:30 am and in the sanctuary and livestreaming at 10:30 am. Sunday School classes are gathering and we will be having a churchwide meeting at 11:15 am to update everyone on Holy Covenant Ministries. Hope you will be with us! I will be reflecting on Simon Peter’s life as a disciple – it was far from a perfect journey!  

Please plan on being with us next week at 10:30 am to celebrate our Senior class and our confirmands. There will be a celebration lunch at 11:30 am – bring sides and dessert. We will be celebrating very special young adults who will be the future of our church!    

Shalom Blessings,
Pastor Cheryl
