Hospitality Team:  Special Gatherings and Meals

At Zion, food and fellowship often go together.  From fall pig roasts, to Lenten luncheons, and from congregational breakfasts, to Advent teas, meals provide a welcome occasion for celebrating or just socializing. The informal committee that heads up this hospitality ministry can always use help with planning and preparation.  For information, contact Dianne Daily dianne.daily@crdn.com or Laura Girbach lgirbach@comcast.net
