Weekly Announcements

Announcements for the Week of June 16

Here are some highlights of the events and happenings at Zion.  For a full list of announcements, please click here.

Worship and Fellowship

PRAYER PAUSE–How to participate: If you have the opportunity, please join the pastor in the sanctuary to pray and lean into listening for God’s love. There will be a variety of experiences available to enrich your practice. If you are busy at work or at play, set an alarm clock, take time to sit and breathe from your location knowing your are not praying alone.

Why do this: Just as ideas in a sentence need intentional pauses to help shape meaning, we too need intentional pauses to help shape and support our lives. For us, the pause is a gift to create space for prayer, centering ourselves on God giving God authority to help us navigate what comes next. As we pause together we will be affirmed we are not praying alone no matter our location.

Have a prayer to be prayed? Have a conversation with Pastor or slide her a note. Call the office or send an email. Pastor is committed to ensuring your concerns are heard in prayer and will be handled with confidentiality.

Together let us unite in prayer for our neighbors and all that we wish to lift up to God.


FIRESIDE FAITH
– Starting this summer, we will be hosting “Fireside Faith” on the second Friday of the month.  We will bring out the fire pit, sing some songs, play some games, and celebrate life together as a community in faith.  We will be meeting in the south parking lot at 7:00 pm.
