Zion Youth News
February 2014 Edition
What a great crew for our 5th & 6th grade movie afternoon!
We made sharpie stained glass with a cross that says "You are loved"! We shared those with Zion shut-ins as a Valentine's gift.
What a fun and silly crew hanging out in the youth office!
Our skit crew shared the gospel story during worship!
Jesus, John the Baptist & Andrew in skit form. The look pretty biblical, don't they?!
LOVE IS IN THE AIR
Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.
-Psalm 100: 1-5
Family Dare: I dare you to read this psalm at home and share with each other where you saw God's love at work this week!

What is Noon Meals?
It's a ministry that takes place at Christ United Methodist Church in Rochester. Zion youth and families attend the first Saturday of every month to give them help in preparing, serving and cleaning up the meal. It has been a wonderful experience in the past for kids and families, so we continue to serve! Kids can come individually or, if possible, with a parent.
