Upcoming Fellowship Meals:
At ZMC, we enjoy regular fellowship over a monthly meal together. The Fellowship meals scheduled for 2020 are:
April 9 (Maunday Thursday meal)
April 12 (Easter Breakfast)
Each family is asked to bring a main dish & a salad, vegetable side dish or dessert to share. Hospitality will provide coffee & drinks. Bring your hot dishes in crock pots or bake your dish & bring it hot & 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 & know that cooking can be a challenge at this stage of life!
Appreciative Inquiry Process:
As part of the search for a long-term pastor, the CLT is inviting responses from the congregation in two areas: 1) to nominate persons to serve on the Pastoral Search Committee, and 2) to engage in an Appreciative Inquiry process which will provide a unique portrait of the congregation for potential pastoral candidates. We hope to paint a complimentary three-dimensional picture of the congregation that is both wide and deep. Thus, we invite every congregational member/participant to engage in the Appreciative Inquiry process in the months of January and February. We will seek your participation via commissions, Sunday school classes, and/or small groups, and a congregational meeting following the fellowship meal on January 19, 2020. Look for more specific instructions in the weeks ahead.
