Dear People of Zion

Since we are unable to be together, we are trying to figure out a way to still be a community and care about one another.

One of the things we are trying to do is to divide the congregation into small groups of about 4 households. These groups would check on each other and offer prayer 1-2 times per week. Each group would also have a “shepherd” to check in on the small groups.

Christine, our Parish Administrator, has been working on the database to make sure that we have accurate contact information for each household.

I am looking for some “shepherds”.  The initial role of shepherds would be to contact the small groups to get them going. Then they would check in on the groups every week or so.

Would you be willing to be a shepherd?

This is all kind of fluid as we try to figure out the best way to do this. Other congregations have started doing this and initial response is positive. I’ve reached out to couple to see what has worked best for them.

If you would be willing to help, please email me at

The movers will be delivering all of our belongings to the parsonage today.  But I will continue to check email.

Thank you,

Pastor Jeff
