Tidings Editor Needed:

Should you feel called to serve in this way please contact Sabine or Pastor Tim, who will be ready to assist. Thank-you!


Make a difference in a young Christian's Life

Mt. Zion has a Sunday school with between one and five students. Another one or two teacher are needed to help out. You would be committing to every other Sunday (or less depending on how many volunteers we have) If you can help please contact Sylvain at worship. Thank you!

Baptism

The Sacrament of Holy Baptism is a "Means of Grace". It is an avenue thru which our Lord provides forgiveness and assurance of eternal life along with a place in God's family and membership in our congregation. Baptism cannot be earned nor is it deserved but is a gift from God rooted in God's great love for all of us. Last Sunday we celebrated the baptism of Callie Helga Leroux, daughter of Tamara and Cyan Leroux. Her sponsors are Kirsten Post and Laurel Welk. Please keep Callie, her parents, and sponsors in your prayers as they take this step in their faith journeys.

Budget Meeting:

The budget meeting for 2021 will be held for the Council Executive Members on Wednesday, December 9 at 7 pm. All council members and members of the congregation need to submit budget requests by December 1st to Donna Chanasyk.
