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 or Renee Feldman at
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 or in the church office.


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
