Fellowship Meal Reminder – Each family is asked to bring a main dish and a salad, vegetable side dish or dessert to share. Hospitality will provide coffee and drink. Bring your hot dishes in crock pots or bake your dish and bring it hot and we will keep it warm in the warmer. Also, a reminder to the elderly folks in attendance that you do not need to bring any food to fellowship meals. We love to have you there and know that cooking can be a challenge at this stage of life!

Elwood Yoder’s MC USA delegate report will come in three parts: First, you will see an article in the August Windows about his week as Zion’s delegate; Second, you will hear of Elwood’s delegate experience in an August 18 Sunday morning verbal report, with the youth who went to Convention; and Third, you will read a paragraph in the July 10 CLT minutes which come into your boxes in August. Elwood is grateful for Zion’s trust in sending him to this convention as a delegate.

PRAYER INSERT INFORMATION: Holding one another up in prayer is an integral part of our life together as disciples of Christ. If you have prayer requests that you would like to have included in the weekly insert, please contact Pastor Ervin, Pastor Bonnie, or Pastor Sarah by Thursday at noon to have those items added. Our practice is to leave requests in for three consecutive weeks or until the event or situation has happened or resolved, whichever comes first.

and has given us the ministry of reconciliation;
