Update on Zion's 1st Field Trip - Today at 11am February 4th
If you are able, Zion would appreciate your offering for the week. It helps us pay the bills. We also encourage you to bring something for a gift to Reconciler's. So many times, what keeps us apart is that we're all offering dependent and living week by week as churches. Let's stress this week and bless both.
Pastor Billy Young says we'll be dismissed about 12:30 on Sunday. If you'd like to debrief after your visit to Reconciler's, Pastor John will be in the Local Eats Food Court at Merle Hey Mall following the service. He'll wait from 1:00 - 1:30 for anyone who wants to debrief to come. It's OK to ask questions. It helps us all grow in our understanding of one another. You're invited to debrief over lunch if you want to.
Backpack BuddiesFor the month of February, Zion is partnering with New Hope Methodist Church to prepare 40 bags of food each week. They are delivery to Samuelson Elementary.
