Zion Building Improvement Initiative

Over the past year and a half, there has been a surge of interest in improving the physical infrastructure of our church. Generous donations have allowed us to address some immediate needs around the building. However, as the Trustees continue to evaluate our church property, they have identified other long-deferred needs. For more details, visit our Building Improvement Initiative Webpage.

Here, you can find the results [LINK] and summary [LINK] of the online survey that was conducted and closed on May 5th. Thank you for your feedback!

ADULT CLASSES
Zion’s Gate (John Shabb & Don Miller)
Zion’s Gate uses the Wired Word curriculum to consider current events through the eyes of the Christian faith. A major news story is examined and then discussed with reference to the Bible and our own faith experiences as Christians who have to contend with secular society. The class gathers in the Narthex. Bring your own experiences and reflections to share. 
 
Explorers in Spirit (Connie Sherwood & Wayne Seames)
This spring the Bible Explorers Sunday morning adult class is studying the Minor Prophets of the Old Testament. Do you know which book is the shortest in the Old Testament? How about the only Old Testament book not referenced in the New Testament? How many books were written by the Minor Prophets and what time periods were they written during? What messages has God revealed in this books that is relevant and meaningful for modern Christian life? We will explore the answers to these and many more questions each week, in the Sisters in Spirit Room across from the Quilters room in the Southwest wing of Zion.
