Dear Zion Friends,
We are very sad to inform all of our Zion friends that due to health concerns from the Corona virus, our worship services, and all group programs are canceled until further notice. Our bishop, Sally Dyck, has suspended all in person worship and has discouraged all group meetings and events until these gatherings are once again deemed safe. So, we will not be having worship at our church on Sundays, youth group on Fridays, choir practice , prayer meetings or any other meetings at Zion until we are able to meet safely.
But we are followers of Christ, and there are ways that we can worship and communicate with our God while we are at home. Pastor Kim will be preparing a videotaped service for each week: on Saturday this will be sent to all members who have email: you will just have to click on the link to watch the service. For those who do not have email, a copy of the bulletin and sermon will be delivered to them on Saturday. In case the video plan has problems, the sermon and bulletin will be sent via email and worshipers can read the service for themselves. Because our church will continue to have bills to pay, you may choose to share your offerings by mailing them to the church at 808 Jefferson, Mendota, or you can drop your offering off in the secure mailbox by the door.
Please take the opportunity to worship in your homes, as well as finding time to read the Bible and to pray for all our needs, and especially the needs of all who are affected by this health crisis.
Also if there are any joys and concerns you would like to share, email them to our church email, firstname.lastname@example.org
Please contact Pastor Kim at 219-765-1379, or email pastorhogunkim@gmail,com if you have any questions, needs or prayer concerns.
