We will have a special Thanksgiving service Tuesday evening at 7:30 p.m. We will have Holy Communion and the Girls Choir will sing. Please join us as we celebrate the many blessing we have to be thankful for.

Sunday, November 26
Worship: We have one service at 9:30 a.m.
Fellowship:   Quilters & Crafters will host a coffee hour after the service in the undercroft in appreciation of the congregation's support. All are welcome to join for coffee, tea and home-made treats. There will also be a selection of crafts, gifts and cards for your holiday shopping needs.

Looking ahead. When we have our regular service schedule, 8:00 and 10:15 a.m. we have additional learning opportunities for both adults and children.

Adult Bible Study: Bible study takes place in the undercroft between the services. It begins about 9:00am and ends before the second service, about 10:05am. We have coffee, tea and light snacks. This is a wonderful time of learning and fellowship. Zion Lutheran is blessed with many members who are willing to share knowledge with those who are looking for a deeper understanding of their faith. This session, Pastor Pranshke and Fred Engleken are teaming up to head the class. Join us!! There is nothing like arming yourself with knowledge.

Sunday School: Sunday school normally begins in church at the 10:15 service. Nursery through 4th grade students then are escorted downstairs for class, while parents are encouraged to stay in church for the 10:15 service. This year the children will come back to church to participate in our celebration of Holy Communion to receive a blessing. The last Sunday of the month we do not have class but encourage all families to worship with their children at the 9:30 A.M. service.



Pictured above is the stained glass window above our alter. 

The scene depicts the empty tomb, Mary magdalene, and Jesus. The story is recorded in John 20:11-18. It is among the thousands of personal, and beautiful stories In Holy Scripture. Mary recognizes her Risen Lord only after He calls her name, "Mary." Jesus has called us by name through our Baptism.

We are His!
