On Saturday, November 18, beginning at 8:30 am, let’s join together as a church and school family and make a difference in our community for Zion’s first “Saturday of Service” hosted by Zion’s Serve Team! We have 4 projects planned for that day; simply choose the project that works best for you or your family. All participants should meet in the church basement at 8:30 am to pick up their t-shirt and grab a doughnut. Everyone will head out to their projects from there.
