SAVE THE DATE FOR TRUNK OR TREAT Once again, Zion Early Childhood Education Center will be hosting a Trunk or Treat event. Trunk or Treat will take place on Sunday, October 30, from 4-6 pm on the black top area behind the school. (Cars will be allowed to enter the gated area from 3:15-3:45 pm. At 3:45 pm the gates will be shut to prepare for trick or treaters to enter at 4:00 pm.)

We are in need of volunteers willing to decorate their cars and pass out candy. If you are able to have a car in this year's event, please contact Pam Kleckner at 635-2743 or email at pam.kleckner@zion-school.org. If you are unable to have a car in the event, but would be willing to donate candy to be passed out, it may be brought to the daycare. We look forward to another great event involving not only our church family but the entire community.

Sunday Service Time Change

Starting September 11, 2016

At the June meeting of the Zion Board of Elders, the decision was made to go back to 8:00 and 10:30 services on Sundays, with Sunday school in between at 9:15. The new 8:00/10:30 service schedule will begin September 11. The decision to return to having two Sunday services was made after much prayer, discussion, feedback from congregation, along with tracking a steady increase in worship attendance over the past months. It is our prayer that by again offering two two service times, the attendance at Divine Service as well as Sunday school will grow even more.

Griefshare Classes

The death of a spouse, child, family member or friend is devastating. Christians are able to claim eternal perspective and can rejoice that the person they lost is now in the presence of our Creator. Even so as humans, we must grieve a loss so deep and significant. Griefshare ministry is designed to help people recover from their deep hurt of loss. Griefshare includes three key elements to guide the healing process.

Each week videos feature personal stories of people like you who are grieving the death of a loved one. In addition, Griefshare creates a support group for all who participate. These along with the weekly workbook exercises can make a real difference in your recovery. Griefshare, with it's biblical Christ-centered perspective, is an effective tool to help people find or deepen faith in Christ as they examine soul-level questions about death, dying, their own mortality and eternal life. Griefshare points grieving people to Christ as the source of their healing. Are you or someone you know grieving? Consider Griefshare.

Griefshare will be presented in 13 weekly 90 minute sessions on Wednesdays beginning in June. Led by Pastor Mitteis, Griefshare will be offered for your convenience at either 1:00 p.m. or 7:00 p.m. Over the coming weeks of May more information about Griefshare will be made available in the bulletin. You may also go to Griefshare.org for more information.
