CALLED CONGREGATIONAL MEETING

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 2018 7:00 p.m.
Zion Fellowship Hall

A Called Congregational Meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 26, 2018 at 7:00pm in the Zion Fellowship Hall for the purpose of voting to Call a Pastor. After many months of prayer for guidance and interviewing, Zion now has a Candidate for our new pastor. On September 26th from 6:00pm – 6:45pm, please join the Call Committee and Congregation Council for finger foods, as we have a “Meet and Greet” with the candidate and his family. This will provide an opportunity for you to meet the candidate and to get to know more about the candidate’s background. At 6:45pm the candidate will lead a devotion prior to the start of the congregational meeting. This is a very exciting time for Zion; hopefully you can attend this important meeting.

146th Anniversary

Celebrate our 146th Anniversary Sunday, September 23, 2018

Each September, we gather with family and friends of Zion’s congregation to celebrate the blessings God has bestowed upon us. As is our tradition, we will begin our celebration with worship at 11:00 a.m. Our service will be a time to thank God for the many years of service that this church has provided to the community and beyond. After Worship, we will continue the celebration in the Fellowship Hall with a buffet luncheon (provided). Please join us for this special day of remembrance as we rejoice in the past and look forward to an exciting grace filled future of Service.

Backpack Buddy program

At our Anniversary Luncheon, September 23, we will collect funds and supplies for the Backpack Buddy program that we help sponsor at Marlow Elementary School. With the help of Thrivent Action Team grants and generous donations from our congregation, we have been able in the past, to supply weekend meals for 8 needy students during the school year. It costs approximately $35 a week to provide these non perishable food items which are prepared and delivered to the school by Zion members and then anonymously distributed by school staff. We shop for and collect food items that include: ready to eat soup, ravioli, pop tarts, fruit bars, cereal bars and individual serving sizes of fruit, mac and cheese, vegetables, jello or pudding. The containers need to have an easy open lid so that a young child is able to prepare the food with minimal help.
