Thank you for your generous support to our Ministry! We take each Offering as a major blessing to what we are trying to accomplish. Your giving changes lives, as Zion creates a safe, inclusive, and welcoming space for all of God’s children to worship, learn, grow, and explore their faith. We have been called by God to do great things in and around our community and none of it would be possible without your financial support. Every penny of your Offering will be put to great use for God’s work in our lives. We pray and thank God for our congregation every day. Without you, there would be no Church! You are the Church!

Even though we are not meeting in person, much of the work of the Church continues. We anticipate increased use of Zion's Food Pantry as our neighbors lose work hours and income. By far the best bang for your buck is to donate designated dollars and let Deb buy what we need from the Food Bank where most things are literally pennies per pound. Even so, many people prefer to pick up a few extra items when they are shopping. That tactile sense of actually buying the product feels good. If that is your preference, on this week's wish list is canned fruit. To drop items by the Church, call first to make sure someone is here. 319-752-2305. To donate while sequestered, go to zionuccburlington.org and select “Zion’s Food Pantry” in the drop down menu. Thank you for remembering those in need. ... See MoreSee Less
Keep in Touch At noon yesterday (Tuesday) I had a stunning moment of realization that we have officially been in this social isolation for exactly one week! Doesn’t it seem like this has been going on much longer? Wow. After a week, most of us are beginning to get the hang of adjusting our schedules, finding new ways to get food that don’t involve sitting down in our favorite restaurant. We are forging new routines that minimize contact with others. Based on what I am hearing from you at Zion, most of us are doing a pretty good job of keeping our distance. At the same time, I am hearing reports that you are continuing to keep connections with each other. Instead of face to face contact, you are reaching out with phone calls, texts, emails, Facebook posts and other social media. You are going the extra distance to make sure no one is forgotten. You are demonstrating your care and concern for family, fellow church members, and neighbors through a variety of creative non-contact ways. Thank you. Please continue to reach out to others, your fellow Zionistas as well as others. if you think someone is suffering, ask how you can help. If you learn of a need the church might be able to meet, please reach out to us. Resources here are always limited, but we do as much as we can with what we have. Speaking of resources, thank you for continuing to support Zion Church. Even though we were not here in worship last Sunday, several of you sent checks by mail, dropped off checks in the office, and a surprising number of you made use of the website’s “Donate” button. If you haven’t checked out our revamped website, you really should! zionuccburlington.org About one-third of the way down from the top is a horizontal bar with connections to other pages. The far right item on that bar is “Donate.” Clicking on that will take you to a secure page and offer several options if you choose to support Zion’s work in that way. Thank you to all of you who are continuing your support. ... See MoreSee Less
