Hello New Zion Parents & New Zion-

Thanks to those that have let me know they are going on the NZ retreat in October. This will help us come up with a total cost. Please note that the deposit is due on Sunday afternoon. This will secure your spot for the trip. We hope that you will join us. We have found this to be a wonderful time away and great bonding among all that attend. Plus, it is just plain fun!

Those not participating in the Launch Retreat, we will sing at the 9:30 and 11:00 services with the Sanctuary Choir. We are singing The First Song of Isaiah. We will remain in the choir loft for the 9:30 service. After singing at the 11:00 service you will be able to leave during the Peace. Please meet at 9:00am to prepare for worship.

Looking forward to being with the youth on Sunday morning & afternoon.

Nona and Ruth Ann

Sing Sunday (22nd) at 9:30 & 11:00 - Warm Up and Robe 9:00am

Numb Generations...

This week I received a video of Kara Powell, one of the authors of Sticky Faith, from a conference she was a part of this summer. I do not necessarily agree with everything she says, but it does make me think. You can take from it what you will and dismiss the rest. It is about 18 minutes long if you choose to watch it.

New Zion Youth Choir

The New Zion Choir is a group of youth in grades 6-12. They meet weekly to rehearse and socialize as they grow together through music, worship, prayer and friendships. They sing in worship throughout the school year, participate in fundraising projects and serve alongside each other in other service opportunities. Every summer they take a mission trip in July. During this time they sing in churches and nursing homes and find ways to serve the community they are a part of at that time.
This open and welcoming group is for anyone that would like to participate. One does not have to be a member of AHUMC to come and be a part.
