Mission Trip Participant Review(

 

​As yesterday we had a follow-up report from our Pine Ridge Mission Trip participants instead of a sermon, I thought I would provide a link to the video that Christian put together for us, which we showed at the end of the service.

With You in His Service,

Spring Clean up!

I SPRING CLEAN-UP DAY... This Saturday, May 19, 9am-noon.  Lots of work to do, so your help would be appreciated!


Focus Group Time!

1) We are gathering a "focus group" together this Saturday morning, 8:30-noon, at Zion.  Our purpose is to revisit our Vision and Mission and Core Values in order to assess if we are on track and to discuss our strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities.  All are welcome!  If you would like to join us, please let me know.  We will begin with a continental breakfast.


Service Reminder!

+1) Don't forget that you now have the option to worship at Zion on Saturday evenings at 5:00 pm.  These 'blended' contemporary/liturgical services have been well received.  Check it out... and invite friends.  We continue with a single service (it's great to have a fairly full house) on Sundays at 9:00 am, with pancakes around 10 and Sunday School/Bible Class at 10:30 am.  Hope to see you there!


Help Needed!

HELP NEEDED:  We are in need of a few more youth and/or adults willing to be trained (quite easy, really) to run the technology during our Saturday and Sunday worship services.  Please let Pastor Dennis or me know if you would be willing to serve in this capacity. Thanks!


SERVE 6.8!

The SERVE 6.8 ANNUAL BANQUET will be next Thursday evening and Zion, as a partner congregation, has a table of eight available to us.  However, that has turned out to be a bad night for almost all of our Mission/Benevolence Committee, Grace Village Board, and Church Council members.  So I am putting the invitation out to our whole congregation...BUT I NEED TO KNOW TODAY THE NAMES of anyone who would like to come.  Please reply ASAP.  Thanks


Women's Brunch!

Zion Women's Brunch this Saturday at 10:00 am.  Please bring something to share for the meal.


New Service Times

1) Don't forget that our worship schedulechanges this weekend!  From this point forward we will be holding services on Saturday evenings at 5:00 pm, with a single service on Sunday mornings at 9:00 am, followed by pancakes at 10 and Sunday School/Bible Class at 10:30 am.



Easter

) Our traditional Easter BREAKFAST will take place between services this Sunday.  Please bring a dish or two to share


Good Friday Service

) I urge all of you to attend ourGOOD FRIDAY TENEBRAE WORSHIP at 8:00pm on the 30th.  This important service helps us ponder deeper the events of Good Friday and prepares us for our Easter celebration


SEDER MEAL

Our annualSEDER MEAL will take place on Maunday Thursday, March 29th, at 6:00 p.m.  If you would like to sign up for this model Passover meal, which helps us better understand the setting in which Jesus instituted the Sacrament of Holy Communion, please sign up at church or reply to this email by this coming Sunday


Important Notice!!!!

"A NEW SONG FOR A NEW TIME"... Saturday evening Worship at Zion.  Each Saturday starting April 7 at 5:00 p.m. we will hold a blended contemporary-liturgical worship.  ALL ARE WELCOME!

 

NOTE: Zion's Sunday schedule will be changed starting April 8th.  We will have a single service at 9:00 a.m., with pancakes at 10, followed by Sunday School & Bible Class from 10:30-11:15.

 

THANKS!

Mark


SERVE 6.8!

+1) Here is some information from Mike Walker regarding the new SERVE6.8-TALENTS ministry effort to connect unemployed and under-employed people with potential employers:  Our volunteer coach kick-off orientation is scheduled for this coming Tuesday evening, March 20th, from 6-8pm at our Resource Center (on Drake at Lemay, eastern part of the church). We would love to encourage anyone interested in learning more about being a coach to come to this kick-off meeting. Folks can sign up to attend by going to our website [serve68.org]serve68.org, and clickingon ‘Talents’ under the program tab, and following the volunteer coach link.  Also, we would be excited to meet any potential employers who might be interested, you can also send them to the website and they can follow the employer tab.


Kraut burgers!

+1) Our youth will be producing about 500 krautburgers and 500 cheese-pocket burgers this weekend in order to raise funds for our mission trip to the Pine Ridge Reservation again this June.  If you would like to order some, please reply to this email with your order.  (The price is $3 for 1, $15 for 6, or $28 for a dozen)  Your support is very much appreciated!! 


3/10/2018

1) Don't forget to advance your clocks tonight!

 

+2) And don't forget that you have the opportunity to worship this evening at 5:00 p.m.


3/2/2018

There will not be a Saturday evening service this weekend.  We will begin to hold these services weekly after Easter.  Our next one will be March 10 at 5pm.


Reminder! 2-21-2018

1) REMINDER... Our second SATURDAY EVENING WORSHIP will take place this weekend at 5pm.  The format is more contemporary and the Sacrament will be offered.


New Announcement

Next Wednesday is not only Valentine's Day; it is also Ash Wednesday (interesting combination!).  We will be holding our traditional service with the Imposition of Ashes and the Sacrament of Holy Communion at 7:00 p.m. NOTE: Given that we had a very low participation in the Advent Soup Suppers and 'devotionals,' and that we will be offering Saturday evening services, I am uncertain whether or not to hold Wednesday evening Lenten worship this year.  I would very much appreciate your input. 

 

If we hold these services, will you participate?  

 

Please let me know?


New Saturday Service!

There is a lot of things going on and coming on at Zion!  I will highlight one each day this week.

 

 

 +1)  Our first Saturday evening worship will take place this weekend.  Even if you do not intend to participate in this service in the future, we would appreciate you joining us for the first few to provide input and give us enough participants to bring energy to our worship.  I hope to see you Saturday at 5pm!!


SOAR

SOAR (Serving Our Area Residents) is a community-wide effort to bring together those who are willing to help others that we have been involved in forming with Trailhead Church.  Acts of service will range from simple one-time things to bigger projects, as well as visitations with elderly or bringing meals to people in crisis.  We will be launching SOARS this Saturday with a potluck brunch at 10am at the Leeper Center. NOTE: Zion is responsible for supplying coffee and other drinks and as I will be on a youth retreat I am looking for someone to take responsibility for that.


Grace Village Volunteer Opportunity

We are gathering volunteers to help out with various aspects of the grace village project. This will include things such as marketing, fund raising, event/ministry planning, and more.  If you have any interest in this please contact pastor Mark Gabbert.
