Brews For Our Boiler
Zion will host a catered brunch and beer swap Sunday, March 8, 12:00 - 2:00 pm to support fundraising for a new boiler. Bring a few bottles of your best homebrew or favorite craft brew for the swap. For every bottle you bring, you'll take one home - so, the more you share, the more you enjoy!

Zion Furnace Fundraising Drive is Here!
Our boiler finally kicked the bucket and we have to replace the entire unit to the tune of $68,000. We've used reserves to cover the immediate cost since it's so urgent and that means we need to replenish these funds. Our beloved church building is nearly 100 years old and if anything else major happens we would be in a pickle.
Together, WE CAN DO THIS! We'd like to have this money raised by October 15th of this year so hopefully this gives everyone time to budget for this in 2020. Are you a Thrivent member? Reminder that you can form a Thrivent Action Team and get a $250 gift card twice a year to put on your own fundraiser so if you have an idea, see a member of the Finance Team to get started! We'll give regular updates here in Brief Tidings and on the thermometer in the Narthex. Giving to this will not only warm our dear church, it will warm your soul as well.
You can give by adding money to your regular offering and designating a portion in the box and write "Furnace" as the designation. You can also give to this anytime on our church website or our secure app Give+ and choose the "Furnace" designation.
