Seventh Sunday of Easter
     There will be no worship service at Zion on May 29 as we will travel to First English Lutheran Church in downtown Columbus to help serve breakfast to people who live in the neighborhood. We'll be back at Zion for our observance of Pentecost on June 5, 2022.
FIRST READING: Acts 16:16-34
     Those who had enslaved a girl and used her powers to tell fortunes threw Paul and Silas into jail for ordering the spirit to come out of her and consequently ruining their business. In prison, Paul and Silas bring the good news of the gospel to the jailer and his family.
PSALM: Psalm 97

SECOND READING: Revelation 22:12-14, 16-17, 20-21
​     The ascended Christ, hidden from our sight, promises to come again. We eagerly pray, “Come, Lord Jesus,” with all who respond to this invitation.

GOSPEL: John 17:20-26
     Jesus prays that the life of his followers will be characterized by an intimate unity of identity with God. To be so identified with God means also to share in God’s mission: to proclaim the word that will bring others into this same unity.
     May 29th is a fifth Sunday. We will not be having church here at Zion because we will be sharing breakfast with First English. Please come with us as we serve breakfast and worship with our friends in Christ.

     June 5th, is the beginning of Pentecost. Dust off your red clothing and prepare to celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit.

     June 19th, is Fathers’ Day. We all have one, they may not be the best dad’s, but we have some man in our lives, maybe more, that we love. As we did for Mothers’s Day, for God Moments on the 19th, think of a time that you remember with your dad or your father figure.

     MAY 28 – Spring Cleaning Free Cycle. The village is having a Giant community Garage Give-away called a Free Cycle. Set up is 9 a.m. to noon. The event is 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Everything must be clean and in good repair. 
​     JUNE 10 – The first Friday Night Uptown for this year. They close off Center Street and have food trucks and musical entertainment. (There are bleachers to sit on.) If you are looking for a fun date night or just a reason to come out and let your hair down, this is going to be the place.
     JUNE 11 – Russ Miller’s Fishing Derby will be held. We don’t have much information at this time. If you are interested in this event, you might check the W. Jefferson Parks and Recreation page on Facebook. I will post more information as I get it.

     Please keep these people in your prayers: Michael Koch, Wesley and JoAnn Porter, Nicole Biler Robinette, and all of those who are still suffering from COVID 19 and their families. 
     Please remember all of our shut ins and sick: Arlene Castor. (Also, pray for the families and caretakers of those on the prayer list.)

     Please check the bulletin board behind the office door for all of the sign-up sheets for this year. Communion, birthday Sundays, and Worship Assistants/helpers. Thank you so much!
     You can also remember special occasions or special people by contributing money that would normally be used for altar flowers. Instead the donation goes to our local food pantry.
