Sanctuary Staff

The Sanctuary staff arranges for care of the altar area and its furnishings. This includes caring for candles, flowers, paraments, communion preparation and other worship tasks. Anyone who has a heart of devotion for the sacred things and a few hours a month to work with the team is welcome to join.

Ushering

Ushers assist people in finding a seat when our church begins to fill up (as it is doing more and more these days), direct newcomers to such places as restrooms, fellowship halls, and Sunday School rooms, and distribute bulletins and orders of worship to those entering the sanctuary. During the service, they collect the offering and direct people to the altar for Holy Communion. Any member of Zion is welcome to join in this service to our worshippers.

Events

Sunday School Socials

From the Rally Day Picnic to the Marty Party, our Sunday School offers times of recreation for the younger children. Check the calendar for dates and times.

Annual Pie Auction

How much would you pay to eat a French Chocolate Silk Pie all by yourself? Or how much would you pay to see a friend get a whipped cream pie in the face? Zion's annual pie auction is usually held in June and is a great way for the congregation to raise money for special projects. In past years, Pie Auctions alone have sent two members on a mission trip to Alaska, sent youth to the national Youth Gathering, and purchased furnishings for our new addition.

Fall Bazaar

Looking for that perfect something to give as a gift this Christmas? Need to stock up on cards for any and every occasion? Too busy to bake that perfect Banana Bread this week for company? You'll more than likely find all these things and more at the Lydia and Rebekah Circles' Fall Bazaar. Be sure to buy a ticket for the best casserole lunch this side of Standing Bear Lake!
