We Need Your Names….

As we prepare for our 200th Anniversary in 2015, one of our goals is to establish a data-base of names, addresses and e-mails so that we can alert parishioners and friends of Zion to the wonderful events we are planning to celebrate.
We are asking each parishioner to give us a list of at least 10 individuals (friends, family, etc.) who would be interested in attending our Homecoming/Lecture Series/Musical Concerts, etc. We are attempting to contact as many folks as possible who have a connection with our church. Please write down the name, address and (if possible) e-mail address of friends and family members and we’ll incorporate them into our 200th Anniversary data-base. You may e-mail your list to ggessler@zionepiscopal.net or place them in the offertory plate on Sunday Morning.
