EMERGENCY ANNOUNCEMENTS:

WINTER WEATHER AND WORSHIP

We can't predict, but we can prepare. 
Weekday bad weather cancellation of programs and rehearsals and meetings
will be tied to what the Hamburg Area School District is doing for the day.
If HASD cancels or lets out early, then all church programming is suspended for the day.
This eliminates the need for multiple phone calls, hopefully everyone understands.

Sunday morning cancellations will be a decision made between the Pastor and some council members.
For large groups, or for Sunday school and Worship Events, cancellations will be posted on Channel 69’s web site:
www.wfmz.com. (click on School Closing then Church, Worship) and it should be on the scrolling bar on the bottom of the TV screen.

Information will also be on our Facebook page: Zion’s Evangelical Lutheran Church of Perry Township.
If you're not sure about a scheduled event, simply call the Church at 610-562-3112.
