Love Feast is a time when our youth cook a dinner for our O.W.L.s and host the dinner around the tables, including games.  It's a great time of fellowship!  This pic is from when our kids introduced themselves and talked about their future plans.  Thanks, everyone, for a beautiful afternoon of love and laughter!

Souper Bowl Sunday brought a competition between the guys and the girls, and it looked like the girls would bring home a big win, but by game time both made it to the goal line!  All donations go to Feeding Medina County.   Thanks everyone!

The Devo Writing Workshop trained those interested in learning how to write devotions.  We'll be producing a devotional book for Zion members and friends for the week of Holy Week.  Nice work, everyone.

Really touched by our Christmas Caroling Service Project. 30 of us visited 7 homes to spread the good news of Emmanuel, God with us. In this pic, the person to whom we are singing is lit up like an angel! Thank you for sharing your time and talents, everyone! You all were such an inspiration.

The Catechism Class was invited to a Christmas Potluck with our MLS group. The food was excellent, the atmosphere warm and inviting and the conversation loving! Thank you for sharing your faith across the generations, everyone! Couldn't have had a more warm and wonderful evening. (Notice the "fireplace" they brought in for the evening, too!) Thank you!!

Our Advent Festival on the First Sunday of Advent was a delightful time for all!  Thanks to all those who helped run craft tables, work in the kitchen, decorate the building, and help us get our hearts and our homes ready for the coming of Christ!

 

Making Gingerbread Churches was just one of the 11 projects we all worked on :)
