Throughout the summer (June, July, August) we are collecting bar soap, as part of our All Zion Project of Hope and Caring. Bring bars of soap in the original packaging to the collection tubs in the narthex. Soap keeps hands clean, germs at bay, and helps people present themselves with dignity.



We have 5 opportunities remaining to serve others this summer.

The next event:
Card-Making, Monday, July 9
9:30 a.m. | Room 4

Get ready to be crafty! Bring your recycled greeting cards, stationary, rubber stamps, paper punches, and anything along those lines. We'll turn those basic items into note card sets for nursing home residents and Zion's homebound members.

[Visit the Monday Missions page to sign up online.]
