The duties would include setting up and taking down.

       These were wonderful donations to our church family.  These decorations look beautiful each year.  It adds so much to the Fellowship Hall.  Thank you for carefully considering helping out with these special projects. If you are interested, please contact a Council Member.

Volunteer Opportunity

Parish Ed is in need of a few more teachers for the next Sunday School year beginning in September. If you have been wanting to get involved or volunteer your hour while you wait for your child/children during Sunday School, this is your time to shine! If you have a buddy this would be a great opportunity to do things together and split responsibilities and not feel the pressure of needing to be available every single week! It works great when you have a partner in teaching so you can work together to switch every other week, every other month, only fill in when the other is gone and have a primary person teach, etc. Whatever works best for you and your partner would be fine. Or you can volunteer solo too! We need volunteers to keep our youth program thriving! Don't wait, contact a Parish Ed member today if you're interested! 

 

 

 

 

Congratulations Zion!

The goal of 150 items for birthday kits was easily surpassed & almost doubled!  295 items were delivered this past week to the Community Food Pantry & Mother to Mother Ministry! In addition, another $250 worth of highly needed items were donated to the pantry using Thrivent Funds using a grant written by Mickey Larkins!

 

God Bless all who contributed!

 

Our next Food Pantry Drive will be collecting popular foods invented during 1924-1974 which coordinates with Zion’s next celebration. Stay tuned for future details!

Dear members of Zion Lutheran Church,

       Thank you so much for letting me come and give a short update about my ministry with the Navigators to you all. It was encouraging to see many of you and get up and share and the encouraging responses I received from you so thank you! The Lord really strengthened and encouraged my heart through it! 

 

Thank you also for your generous offering donation! I fundraise for all of my salary, benefits, and ministry expenses so it was a huge blessing to me! 

 

"3 I thank my God every time I remember you. 4 In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy. 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now."

Philippians 1:3-5

 

Laboring with you, 

Cassie Thornburg
