Laura Hamilton will be running the VBS Mission Project, so if you are able to help out in the office mornings the week of VBS by answering the phones ,etc. please let Laura know! Many thanks in advance.

VBS Starts Monday!

“Hero Central” is the theme for this year’s Vacation Bible School, June 26-30, 2017. Volunteers will meet Sunday, June 25th at 10:30am and end around 11:30am. Lunch will be served afterwards and room decorating/set-up will take place after lunch. If you have any questions about VBS, please contact Emma Standing at [email protected] or Renee Feldman at [email protected]
One of our Mission Projects will be “Operation Lunch Bucket”. The project will benefit LVCAP’s Interfaith Food Pantry. We will be requesting donations of shelf stabile “lunchbox” items such as :Granola bars, fruit snacks, juice and drink boxes, cheese and cracker snacks, apple sauce packs, individual packs of cookie and crackers, jars of peanut butter and jelly, cans of soup or packages of mac and cheese. We’d also like to include some fun things like sidewalk chalk, coloring and puzzle books, and bubbles. Use your imagination but keep it small so it fits in a bucket! Please label your donations for VBSIf you have any questions regarding the VBS Mission Projects, please contact Laura Hamilton at [email protected] or in the church office.

ZION IS GOING HIGH TECH FOR OUR YOUTH!

Exciting new things are in the works for our Zion Youth. We have about 80 High School and College aged youth in our congregation! We are exploring new ideas to keep our High School and College Youth connected after Confirmation, and reconnect with those we don’t see often. We will be meeting the youth where they are….online! In the coming month we will be announcing our plans to open an online “hangout” where we can chat with our youth about their ideas for worship, youth events and bible study, and anything else that comes to mind. If you are a confirmed High School or College-Aged Youth, or a parent of one, please provide the most updated contact information for your youth on the form on the back of today’s “Bulletin Announcements”. For youths under 18, parents please complete the permission slip that allows us to communicate online, by text or email for Zion church purposes only. If you are interested in being part of planning (we really need to have some youth involved in this), please contact Laura Hamilton in the office, or Renee Feldman at [email protected]

Last Day to register for vbs is Sunday 6/17

“Hero Central” is the theme for this year’s Vacation Bible School, June 26-30, 2017. We will be accepting student registrations through today, and we are still in need of volunteers.

Scholarship Deadline is Next Thursday, June 15th

High School Seniors and College students – don’t forget that the deadline for Wurffel Scholarship applications is June 15th!  Pastor Dan has application forms if you have lost yours.  These scholarships come out of the New Jersey Synod and are based upon need and church participation.

Worship Services This Sunday 6/4

Please join us this Pentecost Sunday for a Traditional Worship Service of communion at 9:00 am as we celebrate the Rite of Confirmation. In this rite, our confirmands will take upon themselves the baptismal vows of their parents and become full “Confirmed” members of our congregation and of the Lutheran Church.  This year we have two confirmands, Ashley Carkhuff and John Zeier. We hope that you will be here to celebrate with them as they complete this important passage in their lives of faith. The readings for this Sunday are Acts 2:1-21, Psalm 104: 24-34, 35b and John 20:19-23.

Time to Recognize the Sunday School Staff

Teachers are probably the most underrated yet the most powerful professionals in the whole world. Their work has a long term impact on not just the lives of the children they teach, but on society as a whole. They have the power to shape generations, impact minds and make the world a better place. We’d like to take this moment to call out our teachers and assistants, Renee Feldman, Marge Scudese, Cheryl Fritsch, Rick Heller, Fred Humke, Pam Moore, Laura Hamilton, Melissa Brobst, Brenda Carkhuff, Reg Tauscher and Megan Davis. We appreciate the time and energy you have put in this year teaching the children. Thank you for all your hard work, time commitment and planning that you have put into this Sunday School year. Zion is lucky to have you as a part of our church.
