VIDEO: Faith & Family Workshop

Do you feel helpless when it comes to talking to your children about faith? Do you find talking to your children about Jesus difficult? Do you love teaching your children about Christ but are looking for resources?

Parents of children from 0 through college are invited to attend our “Faith and Family” workshop. We will meet after church on June 4th until 1:30 p.m. We’ll talk about the Biblical basis for Christian parenting, share our struggles, and learn some simple, biblical, strategies
for faith formation. You will walk away encouraged with a full belly and a personalized resource packet for you and your child! Lunch is provided. There will be crafts and a movie for the younger children and an activity for middle and high school students as well!

The Handbells are Coming!

Great news! Our fundraising efforts this past year were very successful and we are now able to start up a hand bell choir this fall! Thank you to everyone who supported the fundraising efforts for this ensemble. The music ministry is blessed to have such a supportive and talented congregation here at Zion Lutheran Church.

The bells will arrive here at church sometime in July. In August, we will provide training on how to play/care for the hand bells as well as basic education on how to read music. A signup sheet will be posted in the back of the church for anyone who is interested in playing hand bells. No music experience is required to be a part of this ensemble! Contact Mark Killinger if you have any questions.

Sermon: Thursday May 25, 2017 (Ascension Day)

The Holy Gospel according to St. John, the seventeenth chapter.
When Jesus had spoken these words, he lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son that the Son may glorify you, since you have given him authority over all flesh, to give eternal life to all whom you have given him. And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. I glorified you on earth, having accomplished the work that you gave me to do. And now, Father, glorify me in your own presence with the glory that I had with you before the world existed.

“I have manifested your name to the people whom you gave me out of the world. Yours they were, and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word. Now they know that everything that you have given me is from you. For I have given them the words that you gave me, and they have received them and have come to know in truth that I came from you; and they have believed that you sent me. I am praying for them. I am not praying for the world but for those whom you have given me, for they are yours. All mine are yours, and yours are mine, and I am glorified in them. And I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, keep them in your name, which you have given me, that they may be one, even as we are one.
