Belonging Part Three
We revisit the Pastor's series on Belongings which focuses on some of the practices and teachings of the Lutheran Church. This service the Pastor talks about baptism.
May God continue to be with us as we move forward.

You may also drop off your message and payment at the church office.

to Help those in Need.

Mr. Jon Felz, one of our new

24-30 men to the Patterson’s Men Shelter for many years. It is always the second Sunday of each month. We are inviting your participation
in whatever way you can assist.

In addition to help with meals the shelter accepts toiletries and used men’s clothing in good condition. Flynn’s Deli has stepped up to participate with us and is giving us their bread at the close of the 2nd Saturday each month.
Zion is very blessed to have a
congregation that continues to reach out and help those who are in need. It is a beautiful example of what Jesus would want us to do. Thank you!
