What is Happening This Week 11/2-11/5/23

Beloved Community!  

Please join us at 7:00 PM TONIGHT IN THE SANCTUARY for our annual Charge Conference with Rev. Edlen Cowley, our Metro District Superintendent. Laulie will be sharing her call story as she begins her journey to Ordained Deacon! Come and support Laulie!!!!! We will be approving our 2024 Leadership and Budget!  

On Sunday, we will gather at 10:30 am to celebrate the saints we have lost this year. We will remember, we will witness to our faith and we will celebrate Holy Communion. We would be blessed by your presence.  

Join us for lunch in the Covenant Center as we have our annual Auction! It is a great way to spend time with each other, purchase some really fun things that have been donated and support Holy Covenant!   
I have many opportunities to greet you in the next few days! I look forward to seeing you tonight!  

Shalom Blessings,
Pastor Cheryl Murphy
