GOING…Going…Gone This is a clearance announcement for all Fair Trade products (coffee & olive oil). We never maintained this ministry to make any money, it was simply to support the Fair Trade farmers. Since Fair Trade products are now available in stores in and around Ann Arbor, we are letting this ministry come to a natural close. We will not be placing any more orders, when the supply is exhausted, there will be no more. Pay close attention to pricing […]

Waymaker Fund

Waymaker Fund In January of 2018, Zion’s Council established a new dedicated fund that will be funded above and beyond our offerings and tithes.

The fund is to give us a margin and create a different discussion as we move out into the community and take risks. The council felt so strongly about this fund they have seeded it with $10,000. We […]
