Opportunities to Serve Our Community & Beyond
This year Zion Lutheran Church is donating the free-will offering at Sunday coffee hour to “In a Heartbeat”, a local foundation that works to raise awareness of sudden cardiac arrest and to provide qualified organizations with Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) and action plans for emergency situations. An AED (aka automated external defibrillator) is a device that helps return a person’s heart back to normal rhythm after they have gone into cardiac arrest.
Founded by Mike Papale, this group has placed 100 AEDs in Connecticut and in eight other states. For more information about this organization, visit their website inaheartbeat.org .
The Zion Lutheran chapter of Lutheran Women in Mission is serving God right here in our community with our monthly food collection for Master’s Manna Resource Center. Our monthly collection is last full weekend of every month at both the Saturday and Sunday services. For more information visit their website at mastersmanna.org
The 2019 Scarecrow Festival held in October was a huge success. Crafters, food vendors, scarecrows and the weather combined for a fun and memorable day. The proceeds were donated to the Coalition for a Better Wallingford. Their mission is to inform and help both youth and adults in the fight against addiction and suicidal issues. Thank you to everyone who helped in the effort. For more information, visit their website cbwlfd.org
