AND AT ZION 11:00 A.M.

Hi, everyone!


Good news! We have resumed our Sunday morning worship services!

We plan to follow these guidelines – as much as is possible.
>> if you are not well - have a cough, etc., please do stay home

And a couple other things – 
1) in gathering for worship, we will keep one another in mind – we will take measures and precautions:
>> to have the church clean/sanitized
>> to have hand sanitizer available
>> to practice “social distancing” as much as is possible
2) and we will remember that this COVID-19 corona virus has been and will continue to be a presence – so we will understand and continue to reach out to serve those who are not yet able to attend or who are not yet comfortable with gathering for worship at church:
>> services will continue to be available online and in DVD format
>> bulletins, sermons, weekly Bible readings will also be sent out by mail or e-mail and the web

And as your pastor, please let me reassure you that in these times, when we are each/all finding our way of how to deal with the threat of the corona virus in our own circumstances, I will go out of my way NOT to judge any one of you because you are OR are not attending church .  I will be glad to see you when you come; I will be glad to get the service to you when you do not.  I will do my best to understand if you decide you are not comfortable coming yet; I will also do my best to understand if you decide to come for worship.  How any one of us deals with this corona virus in these days is NOT a reason for passing judgment on someone else – we each have our own unique situation.

That being said, my heart/soul longs for the day when we will all come together for worship again!  There are so many blessings God has for us which are connected with being able to connect in a personal way. So consider yourself encouraged to spend time together in God’s Word and with your fellow believers, whether that “together” be in person (like at church) or at a distance (such as on our facebook Bible group).

1 Peter 2:2-3     “As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby, if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious.”

Blessings to you – and God bless our country!
Your pastor – Paul Krause

Devotion as we deal with the corona virus -- 

by Pastor Sam Rodebaugh, Winter Haven, FL




Due to the corona virus, all scheduled events are TENTATIVE and subject to change. Please contact Pastor Krause with questions.


The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
3 He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake.

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil; For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever.
