Children’s Choir

by admin on October 5, 2014

The Children’s Choir is sounding great! They are working very hard, learning songs to share during worship each Sunday morning. Thanks to Victoria Davis for helping with snack time, and Rebecca Foote for helping the children robe up on Sundays.
All children in Kindergarten through 5th grade are invited to join us. There are lots of options available for getting your child to practice. For those attending Marlow Elementary, bus #908 drops off students at Zion each week. Children from Sand Hill Elementary are picked up as car riders by Zion’s designated driver. Parents must provide a note to the school with special transportation requests. You can send one note for the entire year. Parents can also choose to make their own arrangements for transportation to Zion. If your child attends a school other than Marlow or Sand Hill and needs transportation please let us know.
Rehearsals end at 4:00pm each Wednesday. Please make sure that pick-up arrangements are made for your child. On the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays, there is a K-5 Bible study that begins at 4:00pm. A fellowship meal for families is served at 5:15pm.
We sing every Sunday morning during worship. This gives the opportunity for the group to share what they’ve learned. Please have children in the children’s area at the back of the sanctuary by 10:45am. Children get fitted for a robe and the song for that day is rehearsed before the 11:00 am service.
Please contact Dana Lee Smith (665-1377) for more information.

I’d Stake My Life On It

September 30, 2014

My head is full of images these days; images that I can’t seem to shake, try as I might. Images of beheadings, of children torn from their families, of whole villages being wiped out because of their refusal to deny their faith in Christ Jesus. So, when the Voice of the Martyrs newsletter arrived in […]
