We  recognize many of our church family will be severely impacted financially during this time of crisis. We encourage you to utilize the many resources available as far as food and financial help and know that our members will continue to support and look out for our neighbors, families, and community.

It is also critical that we continue to contribute financially to Zion during these stressful times.

Anyone would like to receive the Sacrament of Home Communion who is not a regular recipient, or anyone who would like to have a home visit is asked to contact the church office (724-3502), and the necessary arrangements will be made.

Our last mailing of College Boxes for this school year will be April 9th. We have 6 students receiving goodies. Please bring your donations to the dining room before Sunday School. 

The wildly popular "Holy Humor" Sunday service will be held on Sunday, April 16th. This is a casual, lighthearted service of humor and readings following the Easter season and we invited you all to attend!

We continue the journey to Easter and the Cross on Wednesday evenings. Our theme this year will be "Words That Last Forever". As in recent years, each Wednesday evening will begin with a light supper at 6 p.m., followed by worship at 7 p.m. We will observe Holy week April 2-9, beginning with Palm Sunday services April 2. Maundy Thursday services will be April 6, with light supper at 6 p.m. and Holy Communion at 7 p.m.  There will be no Good Friday or Easter Sunrise services. Easter will begin with a breakfast at 8 a.m. The Sunday School Easter egg Hunt will begin at 9 a.m. Worship services will include Holy Communion at 10 a.m., as we conclude our series of "Words That Last Forever."

 Thank you to all who contributed to our One Great Hour of Sharing offering, received on March 19th. A total of $1124.00 will be used to share the ministry of the Lord throughout the world.

"Thank you to everyone who has helped with our midweek Lenten services. Special thanks to Music and Worship committee, those who helped with readings and music, Eric and Stacey Smith and Tom Rash for video and sound, Shelly Nussbaum for her extra work as organist and music director, and our Wednesday chefs. These services would not be possible without the many volunteers."

Rev. Rossman


Creator God, maker of all that is good.

Comforter God, restorer of peace between all peoples.

Redeemer God, healer of wounds that inflict trauma and chaos:

We turn to you this day crying out for an end to a war that rages across the land of Ukraine, 

threatens the lives of its inhabitants, and displaces millions of children no longer able to sleep in their beds, 

attend their schools, or play with their friends.

May your Spirit of peace soften the hearts of the politicians who rattle their sabers

 and threaten nuclear annihilation.

May your vision of a just world thwart the ambitions of dictators who are thirsty for conquer

 and lusting for lands over which to rule.

May your hope of shalom engender within our own hearts the call to let there be peace on Earth,

 and let it begin with us.

Help us find the pathway to peace, a Just Peace, built on human rights and equity not just in Ukraine

 but in every land where bombs and guns are the sounds to which children fall asleep and from which families flee.

You are the source of our peace.

You are the horizon of our hope.

You are the author of our love.

May the promise of your enduring peace, your abiding hope, and your everlasting love sustain us all

 and bring the promise of a new and better day to the people of Ukraine.
