Spring Love Notes Concert

We're looking forward to a joy-filled afternoon of music presented by groups from various local churches, all to benefit Love INC and bring glory to God!  When they become available, tickets will be $10 per person. 

 

For those of you who are supporting the ongoing needs of a constantly depleting Personal Care Pantry, shampoo, conditioner, and hairbrushes are still on the current wish list for that particular Gap Ministry. (The Dollar Store is an economical place to buy these items.) Leave them in our collection basket (first alcove on the right in the Parish Hall) and they'll be delivered  promptly to Our Savior Lutheran for you - Thank you!

 

The Household Item Ministry is in need of microwaves and toasters in good working condition and pots and pans in good condition.  Because of bulk and weight, it would be helpful if these donations could be dropped off directly to New Beginnings Church (35 DeGarmo Road, Poughkeepsie),Monday-Friday9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Contact Maya Hennebery if you need help.

army_soldiers.jpgZion's Platoon
We have been assigned a new platoon. There are 20 US Army soldiers - 15 men and 5 women - deployed from Puerto Rico through August 2015.  They are in a Postal Unit and are responsible for getting the mail delivered. They have non-potable running water for bathing, 220V power and a Chow Hall with designated hours. There is no PX Store to purchase items or supplies. Our packages will help fill their needs, and also represent our support and appreciation for them. Letters and notes to the soldiers are always appreciated in addition to the snack, toiletries and items to help boost morale like current magazines, DVD movies, puzzle books and greeting cards they can send home. Please place items in the basket at the front of the church and I'll arrange to have them sent to the soldiers. Thank you for your support of this mission.

DarbonneLenten Offering Folders
One of the important ways Zion Parish supports our mission in Darbonne, Haiti, is by our sacrificial Lenten Offering. In the back of the church you will find the box of Lenten Offering Folders.   Please make this sacrifice a part of your Lenten Journey to Easter according to your means. Lent recognizes that most people have difficulties in life; few of us can even imagine the difficulties of our Haitian brothers and sisters. Your daily gifts in the folder may seem small compared to the need; however they make a critical difference in the lives of the Western Hemisphere's poorest of the poor. Your generosity is the answer to their prayers.

hand_holding_note.jpgChoir

On Sundays, from 11:30 am - 12:15 pm, in an effort to accommodate potential choir members who might not be able to join the Wednesday evening 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmrehearsal, we will meet at the piano in the parish hall and work on the next few weeks worth of choir anthems. If you are not able to join choir rehearsal on Wednesday evenings, then Sunday rehearsals might be an opportunity which will accommodate anybody who would like to join in and sing in the choir.  Remember it is not necessary to read music or have prior musical or voice training.  Just enthusiasm and the willingness to learn new music, hymns and anthems. When you sing you pray twice.  If you have any questions please speak with Gregory Citarella after church at the coffee hour.
