We will be gathering virtually for worship on Sunday, March 22, 2020. We invite you to join us! UPDATE: Here is a link to the recording.
9:00 a.m.: Service of the Word led by Pastor Andrea will be streamed live on Zion's Facebook page. An online "bulletin" with readings and responses is available to download.
9:30 a.m.: Musical offering by Sheldon Meyer, Zion's regular organist. He will be going live on his own Facebook page and we will share it to the Zion page as well.
The following announcements have been included in the bulletin posted above:
Congregational Life during COVID-19 Social Distancing:
In-Person worship services are suspended through at least March 29. Zion’s leaders will continue to monitor CDC and MN Dept of Health guidelines to understand when we might resume and what precautions will need to be in place. News and updates will be shared via the church website and Facebook.
Worship will continue to be streamed via Facebook on Sundays at 9:00 am and Wednesdays at 6:45. Our remaining Lent speakers for our “Wondrous Love” series will be Doug Midthun (March 25) and Myron Sandstrom (April 1).
The Monday “Dwelling on the Word” study is shifting to an online format! You’re invited to join us for a time of prayer, reflection and conversation as we consider the gospel reading for the upcoming Sunday. To join us on Monday at 11:00, please go to: https://zoom.us/j/8780783081
Offerings can be mailed to the Church Office (PO Box 236, Lake Crystal). This may be a good time to consider donating online.
All remaining Lent meals and the Easter Breakfast have been cancelled. These meals have been important fundraisers for Zion’s ministries. If you would like to make a special gift to support the Youth Fund, Camp Scholarships, or the General Fund, please mark your offering accordingly and mail it to the church office.
The Church Office will be closed to visitors through March 31 (although staff may be working in the building). To reach a member of the staff or arrange for a delivery, please call the church office: 507-726-2849. For immediate pastoral needs, contact Pastor Andrea Myers: 507-402-1114.
The Lake Crystal Sharing Shelf continues to serve our community during this time of need. Donations of food can be dropped in the cart at Kevin’s Market. They are currently in need of the following: flour, oil, chili with beans, pears, apple sauce, bags of white rice and 5# bags of potatoes.
Zion will be serving Food for Friends on Saturday, March 28 at the Salvation Army. The Social Ministry team reports that we have enough volunteers and donations at this time. Thank you!
LOST: A yellow and black handled screwdriver was lost at church. If you find it, please return it to the church office so we can get it back to its owner. Thank you!
