Bolivia Missionary to Speak at Zion UMC
Gordon and Ardell Graner, our missionaries from the T’iu Rancho Project in Cochabamba Bolivia, will be here this Sunday, June 20. Ardell will present the Sunday morning service at 10:00 a.m. Russ has agreed to give the pulpit to her on that day. She will share with us her past projects and accomplishments for the Rancho Project. I am sure she will have a very interesting message. It sounds like she will also be sharing some pictures of her project as well. Please be sure to attend the worship service on June 20th to show our Christian love and support to the Graner family and this project. For more information on Ardell Graner & family, please visit www.granerfamily.org.
“Welcome to Zion” video
Your help is needed! We would like to create a short video welcoming people to the Zion UMC website. All we need is a few moments of your time to tell us what you like about Zion, why you worship here, or how small groups help your Christian journey. The deadline to share your experience at Zion is July 31. Taping can be done at church or at your home. If you are interested, please give Ute Adams a call at 7951811 or email her at email@example.com to set up a time. The end of July will be here before we know it, so please contact Ute today!

Each Wednesday from 5:30 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. we will have a time of Christian fellowship. There will be a fellowship potluck at 5:30 p.m., followed by a short Campfire hymn sing and an evening study. There will be children’s activities during the study time. Please join us for this time of gathering as we continue to grow in Christ together.
