Spring Love Notes Concert

 Sunday, May 3rd at 4:00pm

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.

Darbonne teachers and students 2013Lenten 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. 
 
Easter Pageant Rehearsals

Rehearsals are held every Monday from 6-7 pm in the Undercroft. All children and 'children at heart" can take part. The play is approximately 12 minutes long and will be in place of the reading from Genesis on the Creation at the 6:30 pm Easter Vigil service. For more information contact Marilyn Hill in the evening (298-8098).

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.
