Harrisburg Gallery Walk Sunday, September 11, 11:00am - 6:00pm

 

Zion will be a venue on the Gallery Walk sponsored by the Art Association of Harrisburg.  Artists from congregations in the building will be exhibiting in the Fellowship Hall.  We are also planning for a special "Children and Youth Art" exhibit. We will be providing tours of the worship spaces and providing light refreshments.   Salem UCC, our neighbor around the corner, has been a venue for several years and will be a venue this year.  Pastor Pejack and family, along with many others in the city, enjoyed touring Salem and meeting the artist they hosted last year.
Mark your calendars and consider volunteering for this event.  For more information, speak with the pastor.

LOOKING AHEAD WORSHIP ON THE PRIDE: Sunday, August 21

 
Almost every Sunday during the summer, Christian Churches United (CCU) sponsors a Sunday Worship Service on the Riverboat.  On Sunday, August 21, Pastor Pejack will serve as the preacher. The ship departs from City Island at 10:30am; anyone wishing to attend should be at the dock on City Island by 10:00am.  There is no cost; however, there is an opportunity to contribute to an offering that is shared between CCU and The Harrisburg Area Riverboat Society.  To see the ways that CCU provides local assistance to those in need, check out their website at www.ccuhbg.org.  The scheduled 10:15am worship service at Zion will be led by Pastor Pejack’s husband.

Reformation Sunday Commemorated at Zion

 

On October 31, 1517, a German monk named Martin Luther published a list of abuses he believed were being committed against the people of God in the name of and by the Church—this act is viewed as the beginning of the Protestant Reformation. 

Zion annually commemorates this event on the last Sunday in October with a service of Word and Sacrament, followed by a fellowship meal consisting of German-inspired food.  In 2016, the Rite of Confirmation will be part of the worship service.
