Unity Worship experience at 10:30 am Sunday School at 9:00 May 4, 2018 Dear Holy Covenant UMC, Our church is enjoying new faces and families visiting our church for worship with many expressing the desire to join Holy Covenant. In 2017, we had 17 people become members and 6 in the first quarter of 2018. We also have increased participation in small groups and our “feeding ministries.”  Have you ever asked yourself, “Who is that person standing in the narthex?” only to discover s/he is a member. If so, you are not alone. In fact, it has become a stumbling block for some to approach and welcome an unfamiliar family or person for fear this person is not a guest.
