TO COME IN JUNE & JULY
Summer is here...
While you're out and about this summer, we'd love to see you in worship at 9am on Sundays. However, we know summer is a busy time! We encourage you worship wherever you are at if you can't make to Zion. (Bonus: You can get a jump on those sermon notes!) ;)
Below are some fun options we have for Zion youth this summer!
ZION FAMILY FIESTA NIGHT
Bonus: there will a bunch of outdoor games, a mariachi photo opportunity, face painting, and a PINATA!
Come and go as you please from 5:30-7pm! There's no need to sign up ahead of time. VBS kids will be singing a few songs at 6:15pm!
ZION VS ST JOHN'S 2ND ANNUAL KICKBALL GAME
Youth (5th grade and up), friends and family are all invited to play!
Sign up outside the youth office or email Anna if your youth will need a ride!
JULY & AUGUST: 2 DAYS OF MISSION
If the answer is yes to any of the above, please consider joining us for a Day of Mission in July or August! We will have two separate opportunities for you take part in. Each day will include both service and a fun event! The details for August aren't totally nailed down yet, but the July sign up will be sent in the mail soon!
