FRED CAMP 2017: Repairing hearts and homes for over a decade

    Woo-Hoo!!  Its 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 2017 will be held July 2-July 8.

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.
