Spouses Without Spouses

     Spouses Without Spouses and people that have lost close loved ones support group will not meet in June or July.


FRED CAMP 2018,  Repairing hearts and homes for over a decade

     It's Fred Camp time again!  Fred Camp is a local, non-profit corporation that exists to bring together youth and adult volunteers for one week each year.  Together they live and work in a Christian community, performing critical home repairs and remodeling for low-income individuals and families in our community.  This year Fred Camp 2018 will be held July 1st-July 7th, 2018.

     The Zion Church family supports this outreach ministry in many ways.  These are ways you can help:

·         The Zion family will provide the evening meal for all campers one day of camp. The food will be provided we just need hands to help serve.

·         Zion will also provide lunches for up to 10 workers at a work site each day of the week Monday-Friday.  A signup sheet is in the rear of the Sanctuary if you can help out.

     See Dianne Williams if you have any questions.
