Zion United Methodist Church Hymn Sing July 8

Zion United Methodist Church will hold the first of its two annual hymn sings at 5 pm on July 8. Begun in 1993 at the little country church that is now 143 years old, 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 Gladys Austgen. The entire community is invited to attend. Past hymn sings have attracted as many as 146 people from 13 different religious denominations.

The free-will offering benefits the Boys and Girls Club of Door County. The club provides a food program for families in need, and its activities help children become inspired, empowered, impacted and collaborative, along with having fun. It has been recognized by the Boys and Girls Club of America for being the most outstanding small club in the nation. All of the money collected at the hymn sings stays in Door County.

Since 2002, Zion’s Hymn Sings have raised nearly $32,000 for agencies that benefit people in Door County. Refreshments are served.

Zion United Methodist Church is located at 8781 Cty F, between Baileys Harbor and Fish Creek.
