Today's Reading: Galatians 5:25-6:10 Daily Lectionary: Deuteronomy 3:1-29; Matthew 7:1-12 "And I pleaded with the Lord at that time, saying, 'O Lord God, you have only begun to show your servant your greatness and your mighty hand. For what god is there in heaven or on earth who can do such works...
(Jesus said) "It shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be your slave, even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many." Matthew 20:26-28

What’s your favorite M&M color? Now’s the chance to find out! The youth are offering an ongoing M&M fundraiser. This is how it works: Pick up a tube of M&M’s and enjoy, once the tube is empty you fill it up with quarters, and bring it back to Zion to help send the youth to the conference. If you want the money to go to a specific youth member you can write their name on the tube. Who’s hungry for some yummy M&M’s ?
