Ministry Open--Worship Space Open for Prayer and Meditation
From the start of the pandemic shut down of our building, we have stressed that our ministry is still open. God's presence in the world will never be contained--not by buildings or even, ever, fully by us! But the length and depth and breadth of this time Together/Apart is wearying. Prayer and meditation are important tools for restoring our souls and refueling our days. If you would like to schedule time for prayer, meditation or simply resting in God's presence in the worship space or the chapel at Zion, you are encouraged to do so. Please contact the office
(office@zionlutheran-ic.org) to let us know exactly when you'd like to stop by, so we can support everyone's efforts to physical distance and stay safe, and so we can be sure the door will be opened for you.

Please wear a mask in and around the building, and know you are also welcome to bring meditative hymns or music on your phone or other device, if you like.
