Zion Mennonite Church had another great year of sharing Jesus’ Upside Down Mission with approximately 107 kids, July 24-July 28. The 60+ volunteers that helped out for the week, served as group leaders, snack coordinators, Then & Now leaders, registration volunteers, and group game leaders, etc. Activities experienced were: Group Games (from DCC); God’s Great Feast (serving the less fortunate); Olive Press (olive tasting); Luxurious Home (included mosaic tiles); Humble Home (included foot washing); and Banners (collaborative art created 4 new banners).

 

The average attendance was 85, and DCC Campships awarded were 84. Zion gave $1086.78 in offerings to the Canby Center for school supplies and backpacks for local youth as they begin the new school year.

Children in kindergarten to 8th grade (based on grade completed) are invited to attend our Vacation Bible School Sunday, July 23rd – Thursday, July 27th, 2017.

Exodus: The Great Escape
Exodus is the story about God delivering the Isrealites from slavery in Egypt. God rescued the Isrealites and also provided food and water in the wilderness. God gave them rules for right relationships and called them into a covenant relationship. God not only liberated the Isrealites from slavery, but also liberated them to a relationship with God.

As in the past years, children will be given an opportunity to earn campships to Drift Creek Camp or a small gift from our gift box.  Points are earned by attendance record and bible memory work.  Also, remember to invite your friends and bring your Bible with you every night to help earn points.
Each evening, an offering will be collected. The proceeds will go to support the Young Women’s Seminar in Orodara, Burkina Faso, West Africa, for girls age 11 to 17 years old, to learn life skills and about the Bible.

A SPECIAL NOTE FOR PARENTS:
At the end of the evening, children will need to be picked up by their parent or another adult behind the roped area.  We don’t want children to be running through the parking lot to find you.  Their safety is important to all of us, especially with the large number of cars in the parking lot at the end of the evening. More information on this parent letter.
