March 22, 2020 - Virtual Maple Fest!
Good News – Virtual Maple Fest!
With the uncertainty of our times and the worrisome news circling around us, we want to share some good news with you!
As you have heard, Covenant Harbor has canceled our annual Maple Fest this year. This was disappointing for many people, we know, but the decision reflects our commitment to follow the guidance of the CDC during this worldwide crisis. Each of us has a role in helping mitigate the spread of this disease. Covenant Harbor is committed to doing its part.
Then, we had another idea! If you couldn’t come to Maple Fest, why couldn’t we bring Maple Fest to you? On March 22, Covenant Harbor will host a VIRTUAL Maple Fest!
Over the course of the day, we will go live on Facebook, in addition to posting additional videos and stories on Facebook and Instagram to help you experience Maple Fest from the comfort of your couch. See more details below!
Since we will no longer be serving thousands of pancakes to you all on Sunday, and since we have tons of pancake mix ready to go, we are partnering with our local community, a nearby school and Anchor Covenant Church to provide meals for families and kids who no longer have regular access to free and reduced meals provided through schools due to the statewide closure of schools in Wisconsin. By the end of this week, we will have donated hundreds of meals to the community!
As Christ-followers, we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. We believe God is at work even in these challenging times as we live out his purpose to love and care for those around us.
Please plan to join us Sunday, March 22, for Virtual Maple Fest!
Check out the details for this family event!
