Summer Breakfast Club Ministry * June 29 – August 14, 2015 The Breakfast Club is a summer program providing a free bagged breakfast to children in areas of South County and is a ministry of four churches in our community, Mt.

Our desire is to make sure the families have sufficient food to carry them through the weekend. Volunteers are needed to pack bags during weekday mornings or evenings, deliver the bags. Monetary donations are also needed and appreciated. You can make a check payable to Mt. Zion UMC with a notation to the Breakfast Club Ministry. For more information contact Ann Herche at 410-867-7817 or the Mt. Zion church office 410-867-4035. Reading Camp South County will be held at St. James’ Parish July 27-31!

Camp includes reading instruction and fun activities such as swimming, arts & crafts, and games. Breakfast, lunch and snacks will be served daily. Volunteers are needed to provide the reading instruction as well as other adult and youth volunteers to assist with the afternoon activities. Questions?
