June 2016

2016 has been a very busy year, and summer will soon be here. June looks to be busy also. Vacation Bible School will be June 20-23 and we will need your help. Special thanks to Denise Sharp and Janet Klute for again organizing our VBS. This year our college-aged Counselors will be from Camp Okoboji.

This past year, we’ve been functioning without a Christian Nurture Chair or Committee most of the year, so a lot of extra work has fallen on the church office. Special thanks to Shirley Schramm, Tracy Jacob, and Alicyn Kuhns for the extra help, and also our Fellowship Committee and others who have helped out with Confirmation and Graduation Receptions – without your help we couldn’t have gotten through this year, thank you.

The Weekend of June 4th & 5th will include a Bake Sale for our Relay for Life team.

June 5th will also have a fund raiser for our Kids Come First Daycare – we will be adding a kitchenette for the Daycare area in the little room that shares a wall with the downstairs bathrooms (the ones added in our 1965 addition) and a laundry area in the Preschool area furnace room. This will greatly aid our Daycare and Preschool staff. The Cass County Foundation gave us a wonderful grant, but this June 5th fundraiser will help cover the rest of the cost.

On Sunday, June 12th, we will have our normal service times at Zion as well as Joint Service with Holy Cross and First, Wiota, at Lake Anita Shelter 4 at 9:00 a.m.

Our Semi-Annual Voters Meeting will be on Sunday, June 19th, at 10:30 a.m. after Church.

On Sunday, June 26th, we will be installing our new officers and our Fellowship Committee will be hosting a Church Picnic.
See you in Divine Service,
