Announcing the 'Christopher Messner New Organ Fund'
Chris has had such a positive impact on Zion since he became our organist on April 26, 1992. He has filled this church with such beautiful music each and every week. He has been the one constant in our worship service and has helped us navigate through the many transitions we have experienced over these past 30 years. He's always open to new ideas and supports anyone who wants to add their talent to our worship service. One example is how ‘Bells and Blessings’ has become such an integral part of our Christmas season celebration and could not happen without his tireless effort. I can’t imagine all of the time he must spend learning music for everyone, recording music for people to practice and just working with them to find a song.
We sometimes take things for granted, but ever since that Easter Sunday well over 5 years ago, when the organ stopped playing right in the middle of the service, and we found out that spare parts were hard to come by, we have worried about the longevity of this organ.
In order to honor Chris, we have established the ‘Christopher Messner New Organ Fund’ to begin a campaign for a replacement organ. Once the funds are raised and the organ is purchased and set in place, it will be dedicated to Chris for all of the beautiful music he has filled this church with over these past 30 years and for how much he means to our Zion Family. Please donate if you can. Click here to donate, or If you prefer to donate by check,, please make sure to put “organ fund” in the memo line on your check. Thank you!
YAY!!! It’s Time to Get Your Zion Cookbook! Look on the table in the Gathering Place for more information. If you have already paid for your cookbook(s), pick yours up! If you would like to purchase a book at Zion, please write your name on the order list and place your payment in the red box in the Gathering Place. CLICK HERE for an order form if you'd like to purchase a copy and can't get to Zion. Call the office with questions.
If you would like some help following the order of worship, ask an usher for a three-ring notebook. In it, you will find the order of worship for the season of Lent. You will still need to look in the Bible for the readings and the hymnal for the hymns. We hope these help!
Are You or Someone You Know Interested in Making Zion Your Church Home? If you’d like to find out more about Zion and/or how to become part of the community of Zion, text Pastor at 860-490-5784 or email him email@example.com.
