God's Vision, Our Mission:  To Build and Strengthen Relationships with Jesus Christ and Each Other

Relationships don't just happen, we need to cultivate friendships.  A small group Bible study can be the place where it is safe to share out thoughts about God's Word.  A place to get prayer support, and encouragement in times of trouble.  A place to share the joys and blessings that Jesus Christ provides for us.

Monday Evening Ladies' Bible Class

Meeting Time:  6:30 to 8:00 PM

We are studying the book "Bless These Lips" by Sharla Fritz.Bless These Lips

"Words are powerful. They can build up or tear down. They can affirm and teach or criticize and condemn.  By God's grace, a mouth makeover can improve our relationships and affect our attitude toward life. Our words can enrich our connection to God as we spend more time in prayer and praise. Most important, God desires that we use the gift of speech to give Him praise, encourage others, and verbalize our faith in Christ as Lord and Savior."

You can read more about the book at:  https://www.cph.org/p-20652-bless-these-lips.aspx

We are taking a break for the summer but will resume the class in September.

Please plan to join us!

 

Wednesday Morning Ladies' Bible Class

Meeting Time:  9:30 to 11:15 AM on the 1st, 3rd & 5th Wednesdays, September through May  Love Rules: A Study of the Ten Commandments

We are studying Sharla Fritz's book "Waiting".

We wait.  And . . . wait.  In traffic, at the doctor's office, at the restaurant.  For the right guy.  For a baby.  For the test results.  For prayers to be heard.  Waiting can be agony.  In our culture, where almost everything is instant, we are accustomed to getting what we want now.  So, when our lives are put in a holding pattern, we squirm.

But what if the waiting rooms of life are God's best classrooms?  What if the Holy Spirit changes us through the uncomfortable delays of life?  Waiting focuses on the lives of eight biblical women who waited and yearned and ached.  The study highlights principles that make these times more bearable, and maybe more meaningful, even if it feels like God isn't present or there's nothing we can do.  Learn how to surrender your worries to God, handle the daily-ness of waiting, and draw closer to Jesus.

We are taking a break for the summer but will resume the class in September.

Please plan to join us!

 

Thursday Men in the Morning

Meeting Time:  6:00 to 7:00 AM  

Men from Zion and from other chuches in the community gather at Zion every Thursday morning.  We begin each session with prayer requests for individuals or groups.  We then discuss the Bible readings for the week, as selected from the lextionary for the current church year.  Through the fellowship that is enjoyed, participants respond by actively supporting those in need.  We unite around community needs through donations of time, talents and monetary resources.
