Stepping out in faith to be Christ to others in the world

From The Pastor

   Dear Zion,  

Hello Zion, Prayers of God, and those who pray to God,

Grace and peace to you this day.

KUDOS -
    What a great two days of ministry...
        - last night our Trunk or  Treat went very well.  We had 37 children (plus parents/grandparents/older siblings).  A fun time was had by all; and we had a drawing for a gift basket so we gleaned some names, addresses, and emails for further follow up.  Many thanks to all our hard workers, candy donators, trunk decorators, and the great cooks who provided the meal after wards....great fun.
        -  Micah breakfast was this morning - we served over 20 plus people breakfast and since we still had some candy and Halloween decorations - there was an 'extra flare' to our feast.  Prayed with several of our guests and that made it extra special.  Thanks to Marv. Jr. for coming and visiting with our guests, while the rest of us were serving in the kitchen.

    Tuesday night - 6 pm - called Ad Council 
    Weds.  11:30 - prayer at Butternut and Blue,
