July Fellowship Event

Thursday, July 20th at 7:00 p.m.
The Dorcas Society's July fellowship event will be on Thursday, July 20 at 7:00 p.m. in the church basement.  A son of the congregation and current Lutheran school teacher will share some of the experiences he had while serving in the teaching ministry in Kenai, Alaska.  If you missed his awesome presentation two years ago on his work at St. Marcus in Milwaukee, don't let that happen again.  Everyone is welcome to attend. 
School Supply Drive
July 23 - August 13

The Adventures in Christian Living group is having a school supply drive starting Sunday, July 23rd and going through Sunday, August 13th.  Supplies will mainly go to the Poynette school district, and some additional supplies may be given to Eastside Lutheran School in Madison depending on the need there.  Bring your supplies to the gathering area at church by August 13th, and thank you for your help in showing Christian love to the communities around us!

Zion Mallards Outing
Friday, July 28th

In July, Zion will be going to another Madison Mallards baseball game.  This is always such a fun event with a great turnout!  The game is scheduled for Friday, July 28th at 7:05 p.m.  This year we have 40 tickets available with the cost of $10 each.  You can hand in your payments to the church office.  If you would like to join in on this fun evening, sign up on the display case in the back of church.  If you need a ride, please indicate that on the sign-up sheet.  Let's enjoy some fellowship time with our Christian family!
Slip-n-Slide Kickball

Sunday, July 30th

Slip-n-slide and kickball:  two of the greatest pastimes.  Now you can play them both at the same time!  Teens, on July 30th we will be playing slip-n-slide kickball at the parsonage.  Bring a swimming suit or clothes that you don't mind getting drenched in.  There will be devotion and lunch beforehand.  We will meet at church after the 10:30 a.m. worship service.  Let Pastor Scott know if you are planning on attending.
???  Mystery Tour ???
Saturday, August 5th
Save the date!  Join members of Zion for a mystery tour Saturday, August 5th from around 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.  Some details will follow . . . but not all, or it wouldn't be a mystery anymore!
Parade help needed!

Let's tell others in the communities around us about Zion!  If you would like to help by walking in the Arlington Firemen's Festival parade alongside the Zion float and handing out candy and sunglasses, please pick up a t-shirt by the glass case at church.  Sign up on the sheet there so that we know you are coming.  The Arlington parade is on Sunday, August 6th.  Help us spread the Good News of Jesus Christ as we encourage others to "picture yourself with Jesus."  Can't make it to the parade?  You can still check out the Zion float.  It will be on display at church on Sunday, August 13th.
Walk & Worship
August 9th & 16th

Do you like going for walks on a beautiful summer evening?  Do you like spending time in God's Word?  Then join us this August for Walk & Worship.  We will be taking two walks and we will have a devotion at each one.  The first Walk & Worship will be on Wednesday, August 9th at Rowan Creek in Poynette.  We will meet at 5:45 p.m. at Pauquette Park in Poynette.  The other will be on Wednesday, August 16th at the DeForest Trail.  We will meet at 5:45 p.m. at Sunfish Pond.  This is a good time to walk and talk with fellow believers and then stop for some time in God's Word.  Feel free to bring your friends. 
Save the date!
