Organ Fund Challenge

 

Zion has received a wonderful offer to match donations made to the recently established organ fund. "We will match $0.50 per $1.00 actually given for the organ fund to a max. of $16,000 ($32,000 by other members of the parish). The time limit is 9/15/15.  We liked the blind challenge used for painting the church, so this should also be a blind challenge."

 

Please prayerfully consider making your donation to support this important project. Zion is blessed to have such caring and dedicated donors.

soldier


Zion's 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.

BOOK

  

2015 Friends of Darbonne Read-a-Thon  
It is time to sponsor our young readers, and those who read aloud to the very young. Last year the young people  raised enough money for 10 scholarships for children in Darbonne. We are asking young people to commit to reading books through this summer  and have them  ask sponsors to pledge either on a per book amount or a flat amount for participation. The Read-A-Thon packages are available for all 2015 readers and pre-readers. Grandparents and parents of young people who would like to participate in the 2015 Darbonne Read-A-Thon this summer, please contact Marcy Wagman  for a package - all are encouraged to participate and have  fun during the summer reading books and celebrating their accomplishments in September. Please see our poster in the Parish Hall for updates
