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).  .Time limit is 9/15/15 and 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.

Choir Rehearsals begin on Thursday September 10, 2015 at 7:00 pm. If you know of any potential choir members;  don't be shy to ask them to join.  We will meet in the choir room on the second floor of the parish hall. All are welcome to join the choir.
Reading music is not a prerequisite. What is needed is enthusiasm, an enjoyment to sing and become a member of a group of friends who support each other in the ministry of prayer through song. Plus we have a lot of fun, laughter and fellowship.   We will begin Hymns Sings on the third Sunday of each month.  These hymn sings will begin at 11:30am or close to when coffee hour ends.  We will gather around the piano in the parish hall. The hymn sing dates are: September 20,October 18November 15. December / No hymn sing (Christmas is coming!)   I look forward to seeing and hearing you all soon! Gregory

army_soldiers.jpg
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 p  ower 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.  Marcy Wagman


BOOK
   
CHILDREN HELPING TO EDUCATE CHILDREN IN DARBONNE, HAITI - SUMMER READ-A-THON
The Zion Episcopal Church and St. Nicholas-on-the-Hudson summer Read-a-Thon is in full swing for our second summer. Our youth at both churches are reading all summer long and are being sponsored with donations by friends, family, and parishioners for each book they read. All of the donations will support educating children in Darbonne, Haiti.  Some Darbonne children might not otherwise have the means to attend school.  Our summer readers have begun to let us know some thoughts on the books they are reading this summer on behalf of the Darbonne students -
  • Caleb said that "A Poor Excuse for a Dragon" by Geoffrey Hayes is a great bookbecause the dragon has red eyes and there is a happy ending.
  • Having visited Paris on a school trip in June, Luca finds Sir Alistair Horne's "Seven Ages of Paris" to depict the city's history in a way uniquely full of life and recommends it heartily.
Please sponsor a reader if you are able, and thank you this second summer for your support!
