The Property Board would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to all the volunteers who assisted with mowing the cemetery this past summer. The church saved a large amount of money by your willingness to help make the cemetery grounds look nice - and the cemetery looked outstanding last summer. You did a wonderful job! We are so pleased by how this project worked out that we would like to try again this next summer. If any of the past volunteers, or any new volunteers would be willing to assist again, please contact a member of the Property Board (Mike Winter, Nathan Braun, Ben Uhlich, Tony Olson, Reid Nelson).

The Mall of America Trip will be on January 20th. This trip usually fills fast so please get your permission forms (if I don’t have one on file for you), and $38 to hold your spot, into Jen by Jan 6th. The bus may fill before that. You may invite one friend to join you. This trip is open to 7th – 12th graders . In the event that the bus fills and there is a waiting list,  high schoolers who have their forms and money into me before Jan 2 will be given priority over 7th graders or their friends.

Zion Web Page. Are you interested in building a website?  We are looking for volunteers to help create a new website for our church. We need someone that can work with a company online to construct a new website. It would involve meeting with the different Church Committees and Council to get their input on what they would like our website to contain and then working with a company like ShareFaith to create the website. This project will take many hours over a several-month period. If you are interested, please contact Dan Paulson at 605-594-3165 or email him at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Food to You on December 6: Zion will be serving at the "Food to You" mobile food pantry on December 6, at Eastside Lutheran, 1300 E. 10th St. Sioux Falls. We are in need of volunteers starting at 5:10 p.m. to approximately 7:45 p.m. to sort and serve food. We are also in need of $250 in financial donations to purchase the food. There is a signup sheet and donation box in the back of the church. For more information on Food to You, go to  mobilefoodpantry.org or contact Dan Paulson at 594-3165.

Weekly bulletin mailing. If you know of someone who would like to receive our worship bulletin by mail on a weekly basis, please email the church office and we will put them on our weekly mailing list.

“Son” Shine Box. Please look for the "Son Shine Box" in the Narthex and fill out a card for anyone you think could use a Sunshine Card. Sunshine cards can be sent for any reason, such as illness, death in family, retirement, anniversary, birth of new baby, etc. Thank you, Mission and Fellowship Board.
