Zion United Methodist Church, located at 8781 County F, will hold the first of its two annual hymn sings at 5 pm on July 5. Begun in 1993 at the 140-year-old country church, the activity features old-time hymns picked by the audience. The Rev. Don Heeringa, a former Zion pastor, will serve as song leader, accompanied by Joan Vahey.
The freewill offering will go to Coventry Care, a Sister Bay clinic started last year to provide health care to those who ordinarily couldn’t afford it. Health care is paid for by donations from the service recipient or from the sale of works of art donated to the clinic’s gallery. The clinic provides all services that are available in an ordinary doctor’s office.
Since 2002, Zion’s Hymn Sings have raised nearly $24,000 for agencies that benefit people in Door County. Refreshments will be served. For more information, contact Patty Williamson at 920.839.9193 or [email protected].
