Renewal Works, A Ministry of Forward Movement
Beginning September 18, everyone at Zion Episcopal Church is invited to complete an on-line survey about Spiritual Growth. We have a 3-weekwindow in which to complete our surveys. All
are encouraged to participate, since we will be creating opportunities for parishioners and our neighbors based on the results of our survey. Our vestry members will be our leadership teamthroughout this 2-year process of engaging Renewal Works, Bonnie Kieffer and Mother Mag are our co-facilitators. We hope you will enjoy the survey process, as it asks some very interesting questions that you may never have asked on your own.
For our computer-wary parishioners we are encouraging you to team up with someone who can guide you through the process. To help facilitate this, we will have volunteers with laptops at the coffee hour gatherings on 9/18, 9/25,10/2 and 10/9 to assist you with your survey.
Here is the link, below. It takes about 30-45 minutes to complete.
Everyone's answers will be confidential. The results are used to help us grow and to strengthen
our bond with God.
Have fun!

Coffee Hour
There is Coffee Hour in the Parish Hall immediately after the Eucharist. Doris Niles and Annette Goodwin will host the 7:30 Coffee Hour. Maya Hennebery and Marge Brooks will host the 10:00 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.

The new hymnal, "Lift Every Voice and Sing II",
is being added to our pews as a uniquely American, easy-to-sing, collection of gospel and old-time-favorite hymns. We now have 60 LEVAS hymnals in the pew racks. 32 copies were dedicated in honor of Al and Louise Fridkis given by their children.  The labels inside the front cover dedicate those books in their honor.  If you would like to purchase a hymnal, we are able to order them from Amazon for $15 apiece.  To purchase, simply notify Mary Bendas, our trusted treasurer.  Let her know what you would like written on the inner label.
