Thank you  so much to the “Take & Bake” group for the delicious meal that they delivered to us.  We so enjoyed it and appreciated your thinking of us!  There are definitely angels among us!  Shirley and Lawrence Gronewold

 

A huge thank you to all who helped in making the Sunrise Breakfast a success!  From making the burritos and fruit cups, to donating muffins and other ingredients, to serving the food or making a donation, you are all a big part of Zion’s ministry with our Thrivent Choice project for Brianna’s benefit.  Our Sunday School kids also made the Blessing Bags for the take out food.

We have received $6,300 with many more donations coming in.  We will keep accepting donations for approximately 2 more weeks. Fun facts: We had approximately 45 volunteers involved with preparing and donating food.  We used 16 dozen eggs and 10lbs of sausage and served about 150 people.

 

Spring Cleaning Date is April 17th at 9:00. Those helping out are encouraged to bring buckets, cleaning rags and hand held vacuums.  ALL are welcome to attend.

Parish Hall (Upstairs) Renovation Update—A proposal was made at the January 17, 2021 Annual Meeting of Zion Lutheran Church regarding the completion of the Parish Hall renovation.  The proposal presented was to renovate the upstairs which would include work on the ceilings, walls and repairing and refinishing the floor.  It would also include and updated Veterans Memorial display.  The cost for the project is estimated at $35,000.  A total of $12,891.15 has already been secured for this project.   Plans are to work on this in the Summer when Sunday School is not in session.  A vote was taken at the Annual Meeting and the majority voted to proceed.  Funds can be given in Special Offering envelopes, noted on checks in weekly offering or can be done online through the VANCO link on the Zion Website.  Thank you in advance for your generosity.
