On March 24th @ 1:00pm there will be a Hosanna Helpers ministry opportunity for Zion Lutheran and friends. We have a chance to come help feed and fellowship with underprivileged youth at Forsyth Park in Savannah. We will be providing hot dogs, fruit cups, and chips for the kids to eat; there is a sign up sheet for donations of food and eating utensils for the event. We are asking that all donations be brought in by March 17th so that we know if we are short anything before the actual event on March 24th. The Event will also include a craft to do with the kids. We are still looking for people to come help serve food and help with the craft. If you are interested the sign up is in the narthex in the back of the sanctuary and Misti Vandenhouten (912) 237-1409 can answer any questions.
