              This and That
Over the holidays Zion will work with Shelby Senior Services to help those in need. For Thanskgiving, we need help cooking a meal for two families and providing the food for a third family to cook its own meal. We're also helping to provide Christmas presents for a 7-year old girl. Please check with the church office if you would like to help in these areas
In addition, Zion has  several ongoing ministries, including Bread and Blessing, and Zion Hammers
Congratulations to Steve Durbin and Darryl Kuhn, elected to the church council staring in January 2020. We thank Randy Dulworth and Lori Kuhn for their service as they  prepare to leave the council.  
At the annual meeting on Nov. 10, the congregation voted to have two Christmas Eve services--one at 8pm (with communion) and one at 11pm (no communion). We hope to see you at one (or both) of these services as we celebrate the birth of the Savior!
Even though October has ended, please consider your commitment to Zion and stewardshipThe expenses of the church and of ministry continue to increase, so please consider your sacrificial giving this coming year. Help Zion continue to reach our community with the Good News of Jesus.

If you're looking for ways to take on a new ministry, you might consider working with the Excel Center in Shelbyville as a tutor. The Excel Center works with adults and young people to help them get their high school diplomas. They are especially interested in those with a background in English or Math. We certainly have a lot of teachers and former teachers in the congregation, so please consider donating your time. 
If you are interested, please see Pastor Brad and he can give you more information ...

Zion Evangelical Church is affiliated with the Evangelical Association. You can learn more about the EA by clicking here. Our decision to leave the United Church of Christ after 50+ years was not an easy one, but we believed it was important and necessary for the continued growth of our congregation. Pastor Brad explains more about our decision to leave the UCC in this short video

We welcome you to Zion Evangelical Church in Shelbyville, Indiana!
