Windows Into Zion news items are due the 1st Sunday of each month.  Please submit your information/pictures about Sunday school, church activities, and family news to Carlene Lantz or Kathy Alderfer. Thank you for sharing!


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 Sarah or David Gingerich by Thursday evening 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.


Please remember to submit a “Family Details Form” to the office.  Extra copies of this bright orange form are on the information table in the foyer and also available on the website. Please also remember to include birthdates (month/day/year) for each head of household member(s).


 At Zion Mennonite Church we follow Jesus

as we worship God, nurture faith, minister love,

and share hope with neighbors near and far.
