What's Happening at Zion
Hello Zion Baptist Family!
It really, truly feels like spring has arrived here in Terrace. I can tell because suddenly we're seeing all of our neighbours outside. People are going for walks. Kids are riding their bikes (I've discovered that I'll need to buy at least one new bike... as kids don't stop growing just because it is winter!). The snow is (mostly) melted and people seem to be in a more agreeable mood!
At Zion, we're continuing to discover how the gospel impacts our everyday lives. On Sunday mornings we're working our way through the book of Exodus and seeing how the story of Israel being saved from slavery is a reflection of how Jesus has saved us.
We've been planning some potlucks together as well as games nights and other events in order to foster our sense of community and family.
We're taking a coffee break during some of our morning services - an intentional pause in the service so that we can worship Jesus by taking some time to visit together. Among other things, these breaks are an opportunity to encourage one another, to show love to one another, and perhaps even to pray for one another. I recognize that this is something new during our times together but the church board and I truly feel that in order to move forward in our vision of being a "Christ-centered family who reaches people for Jesus, encourage growth and shows His love through action" we'll need to continue to try some new things. Our coffee breaks are an opportunity to foster our sense of being a family.
We've got other things going on as well. This week has been awesome because we've had a couple of our Spring Break events. We had a movie & pizza lunch on Tuesday and we had a craft day today. I always enjoy having all sorts of people in the church building during the week.
I had one conversation with a mom this morning that was a great encouragement to me. She let me know that she is very thankful for the events we're putting on during Spring Break. She was especially thankful for the fact that we aren't charging for the different events as she simply can't afford to register her kids in a lot of extra activities. We've been praying that these events would be a blessing to our community... and I definitely saw that this morning!
Please continue to pray for all the things that are happening in the next few weeks. And be sure to check out the rest of this newsletter to find out more about what's happening.
We're going bowling! This is the wrap-up to all of our Spring Break Events... we've booked a bunch of lanes at the bowling alley and you're invited to join us. There is no cost for this... but you're encouraged to invite a friend!
Please make sure to sign up in advance.
