Women of Zion

A Community of Women created in the image of God, called to discipleship in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit.

The Women of Zion organization is striving to be relevant to the lives of a wide spectrum of Zion Women within the framework of the Purpose Statement of the Women of the ELCA. We commit ourselves to grow in faith, affirm our gifts, support one another in our callings, engage in ministry and action, and promote healing and wholeness in the church, the society, and the world.

Bouquet of Blessings

Bouquet of Blessings
I am the vine, you are the branches...abide in my love.
John 15:5,9

This year's theme will send everyone into the growing world of the garden. What do those flowers have to say? 

Susan Palo Cherwien
This will be Susan's second visit to Zion. The first was for Zion's January hymnfest where Susan presented reflections to accompany husband/organist, David Cherwien. Susan is "well rooted" as an avid gardener, a former nursery worker, and a writer of wonderful poetry and hymn texts. At this event, she will dig into the theme, using her creativity as a writer. 

"The theme is especially relevant to me, as I worked at a nursery for 15 years, and gardening is one of my great joys. If one looks over the hymn texts I have written, the raft of nature images becomes pretty obvious!"

The Rainbow Singers
Come and enjoy the songs of Zion's Rainbow Singers, friends who blend in a wonderful bouquet of sound. 

Sherry Christenson
Sherry is the founder of Designs by Charlotte, bringing color home in floral arrangements and container gardens. See her work at dbcharlotte.com.
