Meals for Moms

Meals for Moms (and other families) has been an outreach for the last several years. A special thank you to all who have been a part! When we are aware of a new baby or other circumstance, we call some of our volunteers and ask for a frozen meal. (We give a two week notice.) Those meals are delivered to the fellowship hall and then we deliver them to the families. If you would like to be added to this outreach or have any questions, contact Loa Winter (402-694-1777) or Kathy Gloystein (402-416-7753) or sign up in the entry of the church.


LCMS Foundation: In a complex world, each of us need trusty advisers to lead us to proper decisions and actions. Considering tax consequences of gifting decisions from your estate can save tens of thousands of dollars that can augment gifts to family or ministry. Your LCMS Gift Planning Counselor can help make sure that you are asking your tax planner all the questions you need to ask. Contact Craig Stirtz at 402-616-0312 or craig.stirtz@lfnd.org

Zion’s Endowment Committee: An attorney was the first piece of the puzzle in estate planning. An accountant/tax planner is an important second piece of the puzzle.

Craig offers free, confidential, and family focused planning for those wishing to include one or more LCMS ministries in their estate plan - including our congregation. For more information about his services, plan to attend the workshop or contact Craig at 402-616-0312 or craig.stirtz@lfnd.org.

Have you considered Zion or another favorite ministry as a beneficiary designation? Zion Endowment Fund was created to provide structure for those wishing to make gifts, both during their lives and at the time of their death, that will support ministry for many years to come.

Benevolence Fund

ZION FAMILY BENEVOLENCE FUND - was established to help individuals or families in time of need. This past Christmas season $250 was given to such a family. If you are aware of any need in our church or communities, contact Pastor Feddern, Shane Dose or Kathy Gloystein. The funds stands at $281.91. Donations are always welcome and checks may be written to Zion Family Care Account. "Let us consider show to stir up one another to love and good works." Hebrews 10:24

Every marriage is unique, expressed by the colorful personalities of each spouse and textured by the circumstances at play in their lives. Blending these to make marriage work is a divinely inspired art form, challenging to master but definitely worth the effort. Anyone is welcome!



WOMEN OF THE WORD (W.O.W.) – is currently doing the Bible study, "With Us in the Wilderness-A Study of the book of Numbers" by Lauren Chandler. The Book of Numbers is a story of wilderness wandering, but it's also a story of God's desire to be among His dearly loved children. God's presence and provision carried His children through the wilderness waiting. He remained faithful in it all. And He promises to do the same for us today, through His steadfast love and character. Join us on Monday mornings at 8:00 am  at Zion Fellowship Hall. Contact Kathy Gloystein for more information.
