This Week's Activities:
Leadership Team Meeting: Wednesday, Aug. 5 at 7:00 p.m.
Church Reopening: There will be no Nursery, children's or toddlers church until further notice.
Sunday School: Restarting in September.
Today's Memory Verse: Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.” NLT
Health Precautions: There are masks and hand sanitizer in the foyer for anyone. Please help everyone to feel safe in the worship service and after by being sensitive to those with concerns and providing social distancing by moving outdoors instead of congregating in the foyer for times of fellowship.
Social Distancing: For those who have concerns with social distancing in the sanctuary, there is access to the service in the social hall.
Change In Offering Schedule: The offering on Aug. 16 will be for UZ Board of Missions instead of Operating Expenses.
Youth Group Missions Trip: this year, the youth group will stay at a cabin in Reinholds for a one-week mission trip and complete projects in our local area. You can help by providing a meal (11-15 people) for some of the days that they will be away. There is a sign-up sheet in the foyer.
Sandwich Sale: The youth group is selling ham and cheese sandwiches (chips included) to raise money for their activities and missions trips. Sandwiches will be available on Aug. 16th. A sign-up sheet is in the foyer.
Small Groups: Since there is no S.S. at this time, we are encouraging everyone to consider starting or joining a small group for Bible study, mutual support and accountability.
Criminal Record and Child Abuse Clearances: The time has come for many of our EUZ volunteers to renew these essential clearances. If yours need to be updated, you would have received an email on May 11 with instructions for renewal. If you already have these clearances through your employer, your child's school, another volunteer organization, etc., and have access to a copy of it that we can file, we can also use those until they expire. If you need assistance with renewing your clearances, please contact Justine Marsula.
Fun In The Son: Scheduled for Aug. 15 has been cancelled. A Family Fun Night on Sept. 19 will be held. More details to come.
Christmas Play: Scheduled for Dec. has been cancelled.
We're excited to share that we’ve launched online giving at Ephrata United Zion Church through Tithe.ly, a safe and secure giving platform that allows you to give one-time or recurring gifts! You can still give via cash or check, just as you can do now, this is just an added way of giving! When you give, you can choose any special offering fund to designate your gift to. When giving via the app or online, you can also enter your Tithing Envelope Number to synchronize your giving receipts. To get started, Download the Tithe.ly App from the App Store (iPhone) or Google Play Store (Android). See the Flocknote message for more details. You can also still mail tithe monies to us at Ephrata United Zion Church, 408 E Fulton St., Ephrata, PA 17522.
