Thank You from Voices In Praise
Thank you to everyone who came out to support our Pops Concert last week! We had
so much fun performing and it was wonderful to have all of you in the audience. With
your help, we raised more than $5,000 to support the VIP ministry. Most of those
funds will be allocated to Choir Tour 2016 --stay tuned to find out where we are
headed next. Thanks again for your support!
Crafters "n" Friends will meet June 10th at 10:00 am. We'll
make a little flower, a card and plan for July through

Hope to see you! Contact if you have questions: Vera Pflum,

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. Zion UMC, Our
Lady of Perpetual Help, Friendship UMC, and St. James Episcopal Church. This year in
addition to bagged breakfast meals, on Fridays we will also be giving a weekend bag of extra
food to families. 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.

improve their reading skills. 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? Email
