Zion Lutheran Church, Rockford, and Patriots Gateway Center are sponsoring Zion’s 19th Annual event called “Celebrating Dreams,” a gospel celebration that honors the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr.
The Celebrating Dreams event is Sunday, January 19, 2020, at 2 pm at Patriots Gateway Center on 615 South Fifth Street, across from Zion Lutheran Church.
The mission of Zion is to be “a Mosaic Community Sharing the Grace of Christ with all.” In accordance with our mission, we, our theme is: “Where you Go, I Will Go” – remembering Ruth from the Bible (Ruth 1:16) and Ruth Fairchild, a long time Zion member.
Ruth Fairchild was a member of Zion for over 25 years before her passing in 2018. We will be honoring Ruth Fairchild and her ministry in the many Zion affiliated community-based programs. We will be sharing the Women of the Northern Illinois Synod Resolution honoring Ruth Fairchild. We will have music, a spoken word, stories, and photos.
Afterward, at 3 pm, we will serve a soup meal as part of the new ministry called “Ruthie’s Kitchen.” This is a heartfelt invitation for you to join us for this celebration. Your presence and participation is important to us and this community and would be greatly appreciated.
