Important Updates

Heat-related use of the Sanctuary

During the summer months there is the possibility that the temperature in the Sanctuary becomes uncomfortable - when this occurs, services will be moved from the Sanctuary to the Fellowship Hall where air conditioning is available. When services are in the Fellowship Hall, the gates/entrance to the Sanctuary from Broad Street will remain closed, and signage will direct you to the Mt. Vernon Street door to the church. Please go down the hall, and enter the Fellowship hall using the
second set of doors on your left. A note will also be placed on our Facebook page indicating where the service will be held.

Passing of Dora Hetrick

It is also our sad duty to inform friends and members of the passing of a long-time former member, Dora Hetrick, on July 2nd, 2023. A memorial service will be held in Michigan on July 29th, 2023 at 1 PM Eastern, and will be live-streamed for those not able to be present in person. Her obituary, and instructions for how to access the live-stream of the memorial service, can be found at
https://estesleadley.com/obituaries/dora-hetrick/ - please join us in extending our prayers for peace and comfort to her family and friends, and give thanks for the life of such a wonderful person whom we at Old Zion remember fondly.
