Chicken is $7 for a half-chicken, potatoes are $3.50, and ribs are $9 per slab. We will be located at the 24-30 Store on 13th Street, ( formerly Walgreens). See any member of Men's Fellowship for tickets or information.


We are beginning preparations for Vacation Bible School and are asking for donations to help with the costs. "Camp Moose On The Loose" will take place in June. We will be providing t-shirts for all our campers and staff and have planned a cookout for the final evening where we will roast hot dogs and make Smores. There are donation jars around the church and we ask that you drop in your loose change or bills. We have a couple of months to prepare and we know how generous this church is. The children thank you all you do to support them.


Pastor Randy will be on vacation from May 21-30. Rev. Linn Bartling will be our guest pastor on May 27.


The annual meeting of the Indiana-Kentucky Conference will be conducted in Indianapolis June 1-2. Pastor Randy and our delegate, Barb Engle will be representing us. Pastor Randy will also be attending the Education Day prior to the meeting on May 31. We pray for all our delegates and representatives that they may be safe on their journeys and that God's hand will be present throughout the weekend.


Please join us on June 17 as the Heavenly Ringers celebrate 20 years at Zion. We will recognize the current choir members as well as past ringers. Along with Shelly on the organ, they will perform a very special song, “Make Me An Instrument of Thy Peace”. It was written for the anniversary of the Columbine school shooting and other senseless acts of violence. The Heavenly Ringers first performed it as part of a mass ring all over the world the spring of 2000. The members felt we needed to play this again. Please join us for this special recognition and performance.
