One year ago I started thinking about how Zion volunteers would re-enter all of Zion’s ministries after the COVID year. I realized that my job at Zion could be easily split between a shared ministry coordinator and a worship coordinator. The church council approved the plan in October 2020 and I’m thrilled that Kim Haggen is working with us as Zion’s shared ministry coordinator. She brings a wealth of gifts to this job and has experience working with volunteers and office tasks that will be so valuable. We know that all of us enter these next months with a new vision of how we’d like to serve at Zion. Sometimes it’s because our children are at the next stage of life. Sometimes it’s because we’ve found new interests and developed new skills during the past year. Kim and I are working together to connect with you. We’d like to help you find a great spot to serve at Zion!
When Kim is ready to take the shared ministry tasks on her own, I will continue to “keep my desk” at Zion as worship coordinator, allowing me time to focus on the plans needed with staff & musicians for weekly worship, handbells, and also allow for my own music practice time. I’m still here!
