Women

Zion Lutheran Church Women (ZLCW)
The mission of the ZLCW is to mobilize women to act boldly on their faith in Jesus Christ! The ZLCW is proudly a member of the greater church’s Women of the ELCA  as they work for the church here in Scotland and across the world.   Divided into circles they host birthday fellowship once a month, Family Advent Night, a ladies night, not to mention help with funerals, decorate for Christmas, keep our kitchen cleaned and stocked, and host the Golden Age Dinner and an annual Soup Supper with Silent Auction.

The ZLCW takes on projects that help the surrounding community and Lutheran World Relief with quilts, school kits and baby care kits.  This past year the ZLCW proudly donated: 169 quilts, 69 school kits, and 3 baby care kits.  The ZLCW has expanded their ministry by adding a prayer shawl ministry and stitching blankets for our newly baptized members.

They support Zion campers, the Sunday school and provide quilting material for dedicated quilters and devotional booklets for our members.

Baby Care Kit and School Kits:  Baby care kits and school kits are compiled every year as part of the ZLCW’s mission projects.  Items are collected and sent to Lutheran World Relief.

Prayer Shawls:  Prayers shawls are knitted with love by members of the ZLCW and given to those who are need of a little extra warmth and prayer during a difficult time.  Prayers shawls can be requested for individuals or for family members who are suffering a loss.

Quilts:  The ZLCW starts stitching their quilts in the spring and summer.  Over the years they have tied and sewed some 200 quilts to given to Lutheran world Relief, our high school graduates, missions in Mexico and Pine Ridge.

The Altar Guild: oversees our sanctuary by preparing our permanents for the season and makes sure that the altar is ready for communion.  They get the job of decorating for Easter and Christmas.

Angela Khabeb of Holy Trinity Church in Minneapolis, shares with us her reflections on forgiveness and how we are called to make this gift more than an act, but a lifestyle as followers in Christ.
