The Lutheran Women in Mission group here at Zion Lutheran Church held their regular monthly meeting Saturday – September 12.
We were blessed to have as our guest speaker Kirsten Conejo from Central Coast Home Health Agency. She shared with us the services they provide such as nursing, physical and occupational therapy, nutrition education and hospice care. It was a great and very informative talk.

Today we had our first outdoor service under the patio next to the fellowship hall. It was 97 degrees, we wore masks, and remained socially distant but the body of Christ is united because as Jesus says in our Gospel today, "For where two or three are gathered together in my name, I am there among them" Matthew 18:20.
What a special day it was…having some of our children back - teaching God’s word and loving this curriculum - water activity with Rob - ice cream - just everything joyful and my heart overflowing…still singing God’s word is a lamp unto my feet and can do that in public with bandanna as no one can see my lips move and they wonder where this music is coming from…kind of fun:)
On August 12, 2020 California-Nevada-Hawaii District President Rev. Michael Lange together with Rev. Dr. Michael Gibson (President of Pacific Southwest District of LCMS) wrote a letter to Governor Newsom concerning present situation with congregations and schools operation.
We are doing new things at Zion: Outdoor Communion in the parking lot. Last Sunday, Aug. 2nd, Susan and I watched the service at home, then drove over to receive the Host in the parking lot near the
Fellowship Hall. It brought to my mind Jesus’ feeding the Disciples on the shores of the Lake, (That was bread and fish, not bread and wine.) A few had received Communion inside, and about 16 people outside.
We plan to continue this practice until we can again meet in the Sanctuary. Look for more info before next Sunday’s service. I thank Pastor Aleks for his flexibility and creativity. I continue to pray for the health and safety of all of our members.
