Mark May 9 for the Open House of Just Mark It, the former Hoyleton Lumber. Hours will be 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
“Empowered and Instructed by God’s Word,” will be the sermon delivered by Pastor Howard Self at Zion United Church of Christ during next Sunday’s 10 a.m. worship. Guided by Scripture readings from Acts 8:26-40, 1 John 4:7-21, and John 15:1-8, those in attendance will have an opportunity to ponder the myriad ways in which each of us are empowered and guided by God’s Holy Word in our daily life.
Also during Zion’s worship service, there will be a re-dedication for the church’s education building which has now been rebuilt since the church’s fire this past August. The Moderator of the Illinois South Conference Council, a representative from Hoyleton Youth and Family Services, and representatives from other congregations of the Illinois South Conference will be present to enhance the celebration. The Sacrament of Holy Communion will also be celebrated during the worship service.
Zion members will be working this coming Saturday at the Local Food Pantry. Members are asked to be present at 9 a.m. to help.
