Have you noticed the "Zion Ministries" table in the narthex? Each month a different ministry of Zion is featured. Take some time during the month to learn about the ministry from the display, take home a handout explaining the purpose and responsibilities of the ministry, and prayerfully consider if God is calling you to be a part of that team. He has a place for you to serve in at least one ministry. Additional team members are needed for next year, but don't wait --- new team members are always welcome. A sign-up sheet is on the table, if you would like to respond (or you can contact a member of the Nominations and Lay Leadership Committee, or you can just call or e-mail the office, (724) 353-1720 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Be sure to mark your calendar--Zion's Live Nativity will be December 7 and 8, with performances at 5:00, 6:00, 7:00, and 8:00 p.m. Come and see the live re-creation of the story of the birth of our Lord, then stay for some tasty refreshments in our Fellowship Hall, and view our Nativity set display there.
There are lots of opportunities coming up in which to enjoy the celebration of Christmas. We'll be Christmas caroling on Saturday, December 14 (meet at the church at 1:30 p.m.). At 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, December 15, we'll have our annual Night of Music, with lots of our musicians (vocal, instrumental, groups, solos) performing music of the Christmas season--and there are yummy refreshments to enjoy afterwards! December 22, at both the 8:00 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. worship services, our Choir will be performing the Christmas cantata, "On This Shining Night." Then we will have our Christmas Eve services, open to all who wish to attend. The first service, at 4:30 p.m., is geared more toward children, with the Nativity acted by our kids. The traditional candlelighting service is included. Then at 5:30 p.m., a time of Silent Communion begins. Our Communion is open to all who wish to partake. Finally, at 7:30 p.m., the second Christmas Eve service begins. This service is very traditional, with the candlelighting service and lots of carols. We'd love to have you join us for any or all of these events! Do not hesitate to contact the office (724-353-1720) if you have any questions.
