Adventures in Christian Living
Our next Adventure is Sunday, November 15th at 2:00 pm
"It is better to give than to receive." On Sunday, November 8th from 2:00 to 3:00 pm we invite the family to come to our next Adventures in Christian Living gathering. Adventures in Christian Living is our ministry for preschool and school-age children and their families. We will be physically distanced in the fellowship hall at Zion as we create Christmas gifts for some of our members who are not able to make it to Zion to worship with us on a regular basis. Once these items are finished, they will be quarantined for the appropriate time before being given. God loves us! Let's share his love with others. Contact Pastor Schwertfeger if you would like to join us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text (608) 770-8641.
In-person worship has resumed with new worship times, procedures
The coronavirus pandemic continues to affect our lives and how we worship. We once again are able to hold in-person worship services at Zion. Thanks be to God! However, worship at Zion is a little different than it used to be. We follow social distancing guidelines of six feet, we sanitize between services, we have shorter services to allow for extra time for entry/exit and sanitation, and we operate at 25% capacity by having four worship services on Sunday mornings (8:00, 9:00, 10:00, and 11:00) and one on Monday evening at 7:00. Masks are now required at Zion. Wisconsin has a state-wide mask mandate put in place by Governor Evers which started on August 1 and goes until November 21, 2020 for ages 5 and above for indoor spaces. We ask you to please bring a mask to use during worship. If you forget your mask, a limited number of disposable masks are available in the gathering area. At the 11:00 service on Sundays masks are required, the pastors wear masks for the entire service (including the sermon), and there is no singing. Online worship will continue to be offered as well for the foreseeable future for those who need to or prefer to worship at home.
