Worship Assistants

September Worship Assistants, and Coffee Hour Hosts have been assigned based on Time and Talent sheets and past volunteers. We will also be asking confirmands to volunteer as worship assistants when confirmation classes start in September. We fully expect that there will be changes.  It is important that if you cannot or don’t want to serve, please make every effort to find a substitute, and/or contact Laura Hamilton in the office, or Malainie Hibler Stoma at Best-omaha@live.com or 908-752-3094, or Vi Muriello at gingermom123@aol.com for Coffee Hour hosts, as soon as possible. We do our best to staff each service and appreciate all of those who so willingly serve each Sunday to make worship a positive experience for members and visitors to Zion.

Zion isn’t Zion without all of you!

Hurricane Relief

Zion will continue to gather special gifts in the weeks to come to send to Lutheran Disaster Relief as they move resources and personnel into the Houston area to assist in relief and rebuilding efforts after Hurricane Harvey. As this is published, Hurricane Irma threatens the Florida coast and surrounding territories. Since the ELCA has standing organizations for this work, you can be assured that your entire gift will go directly toward aid to those in need.  Checks can be made out to Zion Lutheran Church with the notation “Hurricane Relief”. Donations may also be made online by visiting www.elca.org.

HURRICANE HARVEY

Hurricane Harvey has literally rained disaster down upon the people of south Texas and continues to spread north and east to this day.  Please know that the Lutheran Church is active in disaster relief in the area and will be continuing its relief efforts for months to come.  The latest reports show 120 ELCA churches have been affected by the hurricane and subsequent flooding.  Lutheran Disaster Relief is already loading trucks with basic supplies and is gathering chain saw crews to move in as soon as weather and safety permit.
