Come to The Family Table Sunday, June 29th, 5:00pm.

familytableZion invites all ages to come to a new, exciting, and different faith experience on every 5th Sunday, called the Family Table. At the Family Table, we will pray, sing, play, and break bread together. We will enjoy making art, singing music, and exploring God and our faith. All the activities will center on a theme from selected Bible readings. Our Family Table time will end by sharing a meal together. Each Family Table is independent and stands on its own, so if you miss one, you can still join in the fun at the next one.

Our first Family Table is on Sunday, June 29th at 5:00 pm in the Zion Fellowship Hall. The theme is “Broken Vessels” . We recognize that we are all clay pots, but that God designed each of us for a special purpose, and will make good use of us even in our brokenness. Our art project will be making clay pots.

If you have any questions, contact Amy Young, Sunday School Superintendent, at  (912-667-1482).

May Highlights: We participated in the 135th annual Sunday school convention, and played some flag football afterward. For the first time we had a Relay for Life team.  Thank you to everyone that came out to support our team and the cause. We also had a great opportunity to give back to a fellow member by cleaning her yard and various tasks. Afterward she let us go swimming in her pond.  We would like to say a special thank you Ms. Gloria. We also had a successful Spaghetti Fundraiser to finish our month.

Thank you to all who donated to help the youth.

June 8th Worship Service

We rejoice today that George Czajkowski, Courtney Foote, Brennan Heck and Jeremy Smith have completed their study of Luther’s Small Catechism and wish to confirm their faith through the Rite of Affirmation of Baptism. These four youth have fulfilled the requirements necessary to take this next step on their spiritual journey, and we invite you to support them with your prayers as they affirm their baptismal vows today.
