Feb 24 Letter

Happy Thursday Church!

I hope you all are doing well after the storm yesterday.  From what I see and hear this morning the storm didn’t have the negative effects here on the Shore that it did in other places in Virginia.  As you likely know, three people were killed in Waverly yesterday.  As we grieve with those families over this loss please pray for God to comfort them.

You Love Your Church!

Last Sunday we received a special offering (Love My Church Offering) to help with the additional costs to the repairs of the stain glass windows. The total from last week’s offering together with previous donations to the window project is $4260! Thank you for showing love for our building and the ministries they allow us to do through your generous support to this project.

This Sunday at Zion

This week we continue our sermon series Ancient Words with a message from Genesis 3:9-24 titled Sin’s Consequences and the Mercy of God.  There is no doubt that the consequences of sin are real – we feel the effects of them every day of life.  But so is the mercy of God real and we can feel its effects for this life and the life to come.

Men of Purpose

We have been sharing information over the last few weeks about our Men of Purpose Conference on March 12th – Also posted on our church website. GUYS – this Sunday you can register with our church after service.  Someone from the Men’s Ministry Team will be available after service to help you get registered.  Cost is $10 until the end of February / $15 in March.   Plan to join us for this dynamic, one day conference.

I hope you have a great weekend!  One of our teens, Ethan Annis is in a play this weekend at the Marva Theater in Pocomoke with his school, Holly Grove.  Ethan told me he is playing a character called “Boy Wonder.”  Enough said – I want to see the play J But in all seriousness, we hope to see the play – performances are Friday and Saturday at 7 pm if you are interested in going.  I look forward to seeing you on Sunday.  I love you and love being your pastor.

In His Service with You,

Pastor Andrew Matthews
