Highlights for August
The council mostly discussed what is next for Zion. The bishop covered the call process with the council. The council is moving forward in implementing the call process and procedures. The call process will take months and maybe even a year to complete. This is not a fast process so there may not be anything to report every month but be assured the call process will be moving forward. Things for the congregation to do is pray for God’s wisdom and guidance in his plan for Zion.
What is the best way to use our talents and abilities to serve God, the people of Fredericksburg and outreach to the world? Pray for God to guide us in the best way to serve him and spread his word. “Go and make disciples of all nations”. What is the best way for us to do this?
We want to thank Dan and Judy McGookey for a banner to advertise Easter Sunrise Service. This banner will be placed over the street. Thank them for this effort and donation.
Message from the Council President
I am looking forward to working for and with Zion this coming year. Hopefully Zion can get back to a normal life at church. Covid has caused many changes and challenges. The past two years has not been as we all may have wanted. The pastor, staff, council and committees will listen to any comments or suggestions you have to offer to make Zion get back to normalcy and FUN AGAIN. The intent is to offer communion and two services. It does take time to regroup and reestablish things we used to do in the past. Let us know if you have suggestions and or improvements. I am available to visit with each of you. I will respond to phone calls, texts or in person. I am not the best in checking my emails due to internet service and habit of checking my emails. I am trying to make myself check email daily.
I am asking members of Zion for ideas of functions and activities for Zion. If you are reading this and want to share your ideas please let us know. Zion will continue to reach out to the community. Some ideas are continued bible studies, a monthly game night (social time) at Zion and other opportunities for Zion. We continue to invite each of you to join us for Worship Services and Sunday School opportunities. Sunday School is an opportunity to study and hear the word of God along with the social time before class begins.
Blessings, Wilfred Crenwelge, President
