Special Announcements

Zion is no longer collecting shiny paper

Due to changes in their Community Recycling Program, Verso Duluth Mill has had to discontinue collection of shiny paper. This means that Zion can no longer collect shiny paper as a fundraiser for our youth programs. Our final dumpster load will be collected but, from this point forward, we ask that all members stop bringing their shiny paper to Zion.

Thank you all for your support of this program for the past three years -- it has been a great, simple, on-going fundraiser for the youth and your support has been overwhelmingly helpful!

If you have any other questions, please contact Laura.

Upcoming EcoFaith Summit

EcoFaith Summit: Renewing Energy: People, Planet, and Promise
March 17, 2018, 9:30 am to 4:00 pm
St. Andrews Lutheran Church, Grand Rapids Kendrick.Hall@elca.org

The EcoFaith Network of the NE Minnesota Synod/ELCA is hosting a one-day Summit exploring our role as individuals and congregations in promoting the use of renewable energy, its value to the health of our planet, and how God’s faithful promise of redemption of all creation has the power to inspire and renew our purpose as stewards of the earth.

The Summit keynote speaker is J. Drake Hamilton, Science Policy Director for Fresh Energy. She is a recognized national expert in climate and energy policy and engaging speaker. She will talk about the clean energy revolution now under way, with rapidly declining costs and benefits of wind and solar technologies and the thousands of clean energy jobs being created in rural Minnesota communities. Learn about energy conservation and efficiency as the crucial bedrock for keeping energy prices low and making renewable energy possible.

You’ll learn how congregations in the NE Synod/ELCA are using renewable energy resources to save energy and money, hear about a Faith and Clean Energy Initiative for congregations, and have an opportunity to network with others interested in living out their faith for the sake of the whole creation.

Planning to attend the Synod’s “Nuts and Bolts” workshop the same after at Zion Lutheran In Grand Rapids?

Come to Grand Rapids early and catch the morning sessions of the EcoFaith Summit.

Cost: Free-will donation of $10-$20 at the door.
