SUNDAY SCHOOL

Sunday, December 5, 2021

10:15AM Worship Service with

Sunday School. Second Sunday in Advent is here already!

Give your children the precious gift of faith. Sunday School is a great way for your child to make friends and learn about the forever friend they have in Jesu. Thank you to all the teachers who have stepped forward. We are blessed.

At the beginning of the 10:15 worship service Pastor will call all the young ones and their teachers up front for a brief message. They are then dismissed to go downstairs with their teachers and helpers for Sunday School. The students will be back up with their parents just before communion.

 

This week they will be learning about "Jona and the Big Fish". There are many wonderful stories with solid lessons for your children to learn from and enjoy.

MEN'S SHELTER

Mr. Jon Felz, has brought dinner to 
24-30 men at 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. You may get in touch with him through the Zion office at 201-664-1325 with any questions about helping and needs.
 

In addition to help with meals the shelter accepts toiletries and gently used men’s clothing in good condition.
 

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!

COMING UP

A BIG “THANK YOU” TO THE CONGREGATION

from Creative Crafters

 

Many thanks to the congregation for their wonderful support of the Creative Crafters holiday sale!  We were thrilled to have so many of you participate and enjoy the crafts available, some of which were sold out!  We are also very pleased to share that, even though we did not have coffee available at the sale, proceeds from the sale totaled $597!

From the sale proceeds, Crafters made a $200 donation to the Thanksgiving baskets and a $200 donation to the Christmas giving tree. From the money raised from our card sales, we made a $100 donation to Westwood Cares.   Your support made these donations possible.  Thank you!  

Card Corner & Crafting Update

Crafter’s Card Corner has been

re-located to the church narthex along the wall near the coat room. Cards are available year round and we do update the selection. Currently, proceeds from the card sales will go to Westwood Cares.

 Crafters are busy making hand-made hats and scarves for the Patterson’s Men’s Shelter.  

We, at Zion, are truly blessed! 

Thank you all!
