Christmas Eve Candlelight Vigil 

                                 December 24th 11pm – 12 am

In a time-honored tradition, Zion will keep vigil on the eve of Jesus’ birth in a service of music and scripture in Lessons and Carols tradition.  Due to concerns over COVID-19 we are encouraging people to remain at home for the service, which we will broadcast on our Livestream.  Zion will provide “home celebration bags” to those remaining at home, with candles and programs so you can participate in the service.  Zion will remain open to anyone who prefers to attend in person for this service, but masks and social distancing will be in effect and those present in person will not be able to sing.  Whether you join us in person or via Livestream, we hope you’ll be blessed.

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 5, 2020 AT 5 PM EST – 7 PM EST     also Dec 12 and Dec 19. 

Holiday Drive North Canton  North Main St, North Canton, OH 44720

                                  

This year’s Winterfest event, featuring the city’s annual tree lighting, will be reimagined as Holiday Drive North Canton, safely bringing holiday magic to our community.
The North Canton Chamber of Commerce and its partners the City of North Canton, the North Canton Public Library and the North Canton Jaycees have made a commitment to maintaining the wonder of our city’s cherished holiday tradition despite the fact that for the first time in 100 years, the community will not gather in a crowd to watch the lighting of the city’s Christmas Tree.
Holiday Drive North Canton is a drive through event that will extend from 7th Street to Waterside on North Canton’s Main Street. For three consecutive Saturdays, December 5, 12 and 19, Main Street will “light up” with holiday merriment from 5-7 p.m.
Those driving on Main Street will find Santa and Mrs. Claus at the town center, choirs singing carols, characters dressed up throughout, and the businesses on Main Street decorated and lit up as we bring as much joy as we can to the community during this difficult time.
Letters to Santa and donations of Toys for Adopt a Family will be collected by the North Canton Jaycees in the on-street parking spaces in front of City Hall.
The North Canton Public Library will offer special holiday themed Library to Go kits in advance of each Holiday Drive event. Details coming soon!

  Movie Night – March 15, 2020     

Join us in the Parlor at 5 pm for this heart-warming, amazing movie. 
Wonder tells the inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman. Born with facial differences that, up until now, have prevented him from going to a mainstream school, Auggie becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the local fifth grade. As his family, his new classmates, and the larger community all struggle to find their compassion and acceptance, Auggie’s extraordinary journey will unite them all and prove you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out. Wonder puts important themes — some that few adults can even wrap their heads around — completely into terms children can actually understand.
Thank you to our fantastic Christian Education Team for hosting Movie Night and providing the pizza, snacks, beverages for  this special time of  fellowship. 

Thank you all who came for dinner and to support our mission. We hope to see you all at our April 25th Dinner.
