Dinner and a Show…Thank you to everyone who participated in our first ever ZOOM Virtual Talent Show! It was great to see all the talents the people of Zion possess! Our audience had a wonderful time listening to songs from John and Tammy, Deb Celani, the Holbrook family, Morgan and Christa Messner (accompanied by Chris), Fran Gudelski, Derek, Adriana, and Sophia DiFronzo, Abby and Ben Darling, and piano selections from Carol Wright and Lisa Proffitt; We learned ‘Fire Safety Tips’ from Bill Konefal, watched a Magic Trick from Rob Steindl, Dog tricks from Buddy Holbrook, had a tour of Lee Bluis’s extensive library and Pat Garafola’s restored 1967 Firebird (otherwise known as Fire Chicken).
Audio Books Wanted! Does anyone own a book on CD or a book on tape that they can lend? Do you have a tape player or CD player you can share? We know that most audio books can be downloaded from apps or websites these days, yet some who don’t have access to smartphone capabilities can not utilize these methods. Libraries are not open right now so we were hoping that we might find some among our Zion friends. If so, please respond to this email or call Christine in the church office (860-628-5759) to see how we might be able to share these resources with some older members of our congregation. THANK YOU!
ZOOM Bible Study! We have had Zoom Coffee Hour, Zoom Worship, and a Zoom Talent Show. I think it is time for Zoom Bible Study. Maybe a one-session lesson first. If all goes well, we could do a series.
Are you interested? What works best for you? Weeknights? Week days? Weekends? Let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will see what we can do. – Pastor Jeff
Our Shepherds continue to be busy contacting their ‘flocks‘ on a weekly basis. Our goal is for everyone in the congregation to receive a call from a shepherd and have someone to contact should they need help. We are here to listen and provide help in any way that we can. If you have not had someone call you yet or if you prefer not to be on our list of people to call, please let us know. You can contact the office at email@example.com or Pastor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Praying you are all safe and healthy.
Southington Community Services is requesting the following:
juice boxes, children’s snacks, mac & cheese, canned vegetables, canned soups, canned fruit and cereal. Please DO NOT make a special trip to the grocery store, but if you are there and can pick up a few items for the food pantry, it would be appreciated. *Items can be dropped off in the Blue Recycling Bin by the front doors Monday – Thursday and we will bring them into the church and deliver them to Community Services weekly.
