The Cove is an online connection tool designed to help HCN members and regular attenders get connected to the life of the church. It is a database that integrates with our church records. You will be required to login.
 
The Cove provides its members 24/7 access to their membership information. All members who wish to access their information can create a login. Once you register, you can:
  • view the church calendar
  • register & pay for events
  • give on-line
  • view individual names, addresses, phone numbers, and emails
  • update your own profile with a new address, phone number, email address, or even your family or individual picture
All change requests are considered “pending” until an HCN Cove administrator approves it.
 
 

How to create a login

Simply click on the link below to register as a new user, and then click “Sign Up”. Enter your email address along with your first name and last name. The Cove matches email addresses we have in our database so be sure to use the email we have on file for you. Also your name has to match exactly. If you are in our database as “William,” then using “Bill” will not allow you access. If no match is found, a message will be sent to the administrator who will send you an email with your username and activation link.
