Fall Family Fun Night!

Saturday October 17th, 2015

Please join us for Zion's second Fall Family Fun Night on Saturday, October 17, at Rhodes Family Farm in Worden! All Zion students and families are invited! Please plan to arrive between 5:00 - 5:30 pm. Zion's reduced admission rate that evening includes all of Rhodes' fun activities until the sun goes down as well as the corn maze and a bonfire after dark. Bring flashlights and lawn chairs! Food and drinks will be provided. If you plan to attend, please turn in the reservation form along with $5.00 per person (children ages 2 and under are free) to the school office no later than Oct. 8! (This will help us determine how many people to plan for and how much food to have on hand!) This event was lots of fun last year with over 120 people in attendance! We hope to see everyone there again this year!

Griefshare Classes

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 healing process.

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.
