Congratulation Graduates! On Sunday, May 12th, three of Zion’s
youth gathered for worship and we had the opportunity to offer our
blessings and prayers as they venture forth to where ever God leads
These three exceptional young women will be going to college. One
plans to be a veterinarian, one wants to be a writer, and one plans to
be a genetic councilor.
Graduates received a hand-made quilt from Zion’s Quilters as a
gift. A scholarship from Zion Lutheran was awarded to one graduate..
May God bless each of our graduates as they celebrate this milestone
and as they venture forth to serve their neighbors in need and continue
to grow in faith.

|| Faith 5
Faith 5 Family
Time is a devotional format developed by Pastor Rich Melheim for
families to share, read, talk, pray, and bless each other. Through
the Confirmation Ministry, we are encouraging you to adopt this
practice. Each week at Confirmation, your child will receive a
handout that will provide guidance for four days a week. It can be
shared at a variety of times – dinner, end of the day before
heading to bed, in the car, or anytime you can bring the family
together. It may take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes depending on the
size of your family and the depth of the conversation. It is hoped
that this may become a regular part of your family faith life,
drawing you close to each other and to God. Each week a guide sheet
will be sent home with our Confirmation students. The scriptures
parallel the Gospel of Luke readings we are doing in class. For more
information, visit Faith 5's web site.
Did you know that when a child spends a week at Church/Bible Camp,
faith is lived out every hour of the day? Unlike most places we spend
out time, campers are drawn into the ritual and rhythm of faithful life
together. Want to make a difference in the life of our youth? Encourage
them to attend one of our Lutheran Bible camps and/or be sure to
support Zion Camperships and help make it financially possible for a
child to go to camp this summer.
Why Go Lutheran?

You can go
to camp! We encourage our youth to go to attend our Lutheran Bible
and experience the love and power of God is new ways. Zion offers
camperships to its younger members to help make camp a possibility for
everyone. Pick up a Campership form, fill it out, and return it to the
church office - one form for each child. The church treasurer will send
the campership money to the camp. A campership will cover for half the
cost - for a weekend or half week camp , up to $100, or up to $200
for a week long camp
