ACTIVITIES AT ZION
1. CHRISTMAS CHEER PARTICIPATION
The Mitten Tree is now set up in the narthex awaiting your donations of knitted items for Christmas hampers.
And once again we will be a Christmas Cheer Depot Wednesday, December 13, 2023. Volunteers are needed to assist with the Christmas Cheer depot here at Zion on. Each year we service approximately 50-70 families in our downtown neighbourhood which assists in the celebration of Christmas with their families. Your assistance is required mainly for receiving delivery and arranging boxes/gifts as they arrive here and then distributing them once the recipients arrive for pickup. Generally the time span for this is approximately from 10 am to 2 pm at the very latest. Please sign the sheet that is posted on the bulletin board by the side entrance.
