Sunday Service Time Change
Starting September 11, 2016
At the June meeting of the Zion Board of Elders, the decision was
made to go back to 8:00 and 10:30 services on Sundays, with
Sunday school in between at 9:15. The new 8:00/10:30 service
schedule will begin September 11. The decision to return to having
two Sunday services was made after much prayer, discussion,
feedback from congregation, along with tracking a steady increase
in worship attendance over the past months. It is our prayer that by
again offering two two service times, the attendance at Divine Service as well as Sunday school will
grow even more.
The death of a spouse, child, family member or friend is devastating. Christians are able to claim
eternal perspective and can rejoice that the person they lost is now in the presence of our Creator.
Even so as humans, we must grieve a loss so deep and significant. Griefshare ministry is designed to
help people recover from their deep hurt of loss. Griefshare includes three key elements to guide the
Each week videos feature personal stories of people like you who are grieving the
death of a loved one. In addition, Griefshare creates a support group for all who participate. These
along with the weekly workbook exercises can make a real difference in your recovery.
Griefshare, with it's biblical Christ-centered perspective, is an effective tool to help people find or
deepen faith in Christ as they examine soul-level questions about death, dying, their own mortality
and eternal life. Griefshare points grieving people to Christ as the source of their healing. Are you or
someone you know grieving? Consider Griefshare.
Griefshare will be presented in 13 weekly 90 minute sessions on
Wednesdays beginning in June. Led by Pastor Mitteis,
Griefshare will be offered for your convenience at either 1:00
p.m. or 7:00 p.m. Over the coming weeks of May more
information about Griefshare will be made available in the
bulletin. You may also go to Griefshare.org
for more information.
