HIGHER THINGS YOUTH CONFERENCE Zion will be sending two chaperones and 4 youth to the Higher Things Conference in Mequon, WI from July 16th to July 19th. The theme this year is "Concordia" which literally means "with one heart" in Latin. The Church is unified around the confession of Jesus as our Lord and Savior like a congregation singing together in many different parts but singing the same song together in perfect harmony. Concordia isn't just a feeling that we are one. It's not only something that we strive to have. We don't sacrifice what we believe in order to be unified. True Concord is always centered around the confession of Christ and Him crucified! Please keep our members attending this conference in your prayers.

Thank you for your support.
