Patriot Day

On Wednesday, 9/11 we gathered to thank God for our country, our founding principles, and the work of those who protect and serve us. We remember with sadness, the evil intent of others to hurt our people on our country’s soil. We remember that we each can serve as a “first responder” with the Gospel to those who grieve and those who need comfort for any reason. Special thanks to Zion Cub Scout Pack 120 who raised our flags and then led us in the pledges. We thank our Eighth Graders who read Bible passages appropriate to the day. And we thank our Braille Ministry members, parents/families, and community members who joined us for our special event. Blessings to you! Thank you for your kindness to each other and for honoring those who serve others.

Consider joining the Children’s Ministry Sunday School Team.
We are looking for adult volunteers on Sundays for the 10 am worship service, to teach the Children’s Message followed by a craft/snack. The Children’s message will be pre-made along with all the snacks or crafts needed. All you do is walk the children from the church during the Sermon to another room, read the message and follow the directions for the craft/snack, make sure the room is cleaned up and then walk the children back to Church to sit with their parents. All of this will be about 15-20 minutes of your time and you will receive a one hour credit of parent participation time.  We encourage you to sign up with a friend as working in a team is more fun.  You may read the message ahead of time through email or picking up a copy in the school office. You may sign up for just one Sunday during the year or you can be on a rotation of once a month for example such as the second Sunday of each month.
If you would like additional parent hours but prefer to work at home, we are looking for someone to be in charge of making a schedule the volunteers for each month and giving a weekly reminder to the volunteers of their upcoming commitment. Write in your email or phone number and Mrs. Tordil will contact you if you are interested. Great way to earn parent hours, receive 1 hour for 20 minutes of FUN with the kids! For more information  Email Mrs. Tordil  or call at 714-535-3600 ext. 410
