Welcome to 
Zion Church

This Sunday, Maya Hennebery and Mother Mag will be visiting our mission in
DarbonneHaiti, and the Rev. Kevin D. Bean, will be your celebrant at Zion
Our Gospel passage for this week is from Matthew (
9:35-10:8), which includes Jesus' impossible instructions to, "proclaim the good news, "The kingdom of heaven has come near." Cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, 
cast out demons. You received without payment give without payment
We must decide if we are being called to be healers or are the lost sheep, "
harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd." Jesus leaves us no wiggle room. The good news for us is that we know we are always both, because we are human. We are never called to be super-human, although 
our culture pushes us to be just that. We Christians know that we are lost without our shepherd; that we are always in need of healing; and that Jesus 
is as close to us as our own breath. Come and hear how near we are to salvation, and how the twelve disciples were called to save their own people. Our services are at 7:30 and 10 am.

in the Parish Hall immediately after the Eucharist.
Mary Bendas
will host the 7:30
 Coffee Hour.
If you are visiting Zion Church, please join us. The Verger will direct you to the Parish Hall if you are not certain where it is. Sign-up Sheets for Coffee Hour are in their usual places.

It's not too late to add your relative's photo to the Military Bulletin BoardWe are honoring our troops and veterans by placing their photos (in full uniform if possible) on a Military Bulletin Board which is located in the Parish Hall. Don't forget to put the name and branch (Army/Navy, etc.) (if deceased Veteran) on the back, and your name and phone number too. There is a mail slot in the office building where photos can be placed or they can be given to 
Carol Jane Walker or Mary Boscher. You can pick up your photo after it's been resized and added to the display - in a box underneath the bulletin board.
If you are gluten intolerant, rice wafers are available. Let the priest know when taking communion.
Zion's Tuesdaymorning Bible Study

Read-a-Thon - It is summer time and time for the annual Friends of Darbonne Read-a-Thon.  We have exciting news - Church of the Resurrection will be joining us and St. Nicholas in our summer reading program.  As a reminder, the Read-A-Thon is a program where the children in our respective parishes (and those who are friends of our parishes) read to raise scholarship dollars to help children from Darbonne attend school (public education is very limited in Haiti).  Sponsors are asked to support a child's reading effort by agreeing to contribute an amount per book or a flat amount for completing the summer reading program.  Reading Weeks areMay 28th through September 1stIf you know a young person who would like to participate in the Read-a-Thon OR if you are willing to sponsor a child's summer reading program please contact me,  Marcy Wagman (wagmanml@verizon.net). Thank you.
