Check out Pastor Brad's latest update video. Then, comment about what you're doing to draw closer to Jesus (or what you're doing to stave off boredom!) on our Facebook page.
Good Afternoon Zion Family,
Just a few notes for you today as we continue adjusting to our new reality. Perhaps boredom is beginning to set in for you (or your kids!). I hope and pray that you're discovering ways to draw near to Jesus.
I pray you'd continue to keep Philippians 4:6 - 7 in mind: "do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
Keep on praying for one another - keep on seeking ways to connect with one another. I'll be trying to send out some regular video updates and we'll try to keep the list of resources current.
Be encouraged! Jesus is at work and it has been good to hear about some of the things He is doing.
Be watching for an email about this week's Sunday worship service. It will "go live" around 10:00 on Sunday.

We know that our Sunday morning offerings are meant to be a way to express our commitment and thanks to Jesus. We also understand that even though we aren't able to meet in-person the regular operating expenses continue. Julie, Zion's treasurer, is working on finding new ways for you to give to the ministry of Zion. For now, remember that:
You can give by cheque (drop it off at the church building or send it in the mail (2911 Sparks Street Terrace BC V8G 2T4)
You can give by cash (drop it off at the church building)
You can connect with Pastor Brad to come and use the debit machine in the church building
We're hoping to be able to accept e-transfers soon.
You can set aside whatever you choose to give and add it to the offering when we're able to start meeting face-to-face again.
