Once again, Zion will enter a float in the Effingham County Fair Parade in Springfield. The Evangelism and Social Ministry Committees are in charge of this project. Fair week is October 22nd-27th. The parade is Monday, October 22nd. Lineup begins at 4:30 p.m. The float, as usual, will start on the side street by Holy Trinity. The parade begins at 5:00 p.m.
We are looking for members to ride on the float. Come, join in the fun!
After many months of prayer for guidance and interviewing, Zion now has a new pastor. The Congregation voted to extend a Call to the Rev. John Benjamin Mandrick, “Pastor Ben”, at a Called Congregation Meeting on September 26th, and Pastor Ben has accepted the Call.
Pastor Ben and his wife, Andi, and their four young children, Liam, Avery, Caroli, and Maxwell, will be joining the Zion family officially on November 15th.
These are exciting times for Zion. We look forward to our new journey with Pastor Ben and his family as the Holy Spirit guides our ministry opportunities in our community and at Zion. Hopefully you will come be a part of the journey.
