Thrivent Choice Dollars Deadline. The annual deadline for allocating your Choice Dollars is March 31st.  If you do not allocate your funds before the 31st Thrivent will distribute for you.  Go on line or call 1-800-847-4836 to allocate where you want them distributed.  Also, for those withdrawing money from traditional IRAs including RMD (required minimum distributions), you can now designate Zion or other non-profit organizations to receive your donated funds tax free.  This will decrease your taxes and allow more money to go toward your non-profit organization.  If interested, talk to your Thrivent Representative.

SHOES AND BOOTS: Local elementary and middle school children are in need of gently used tennis shoes and winter boots. Please put your donations in the box labeled as such. Thank you!

The We CAN project for March: STREET CORNER REVIVAL with Joey Clark (formerly from Garretson). We will be collecting the following (new or gently used): Small Blankets, Stocking Hats, Scarfs, Hoodies, Snacks & Drinks that are individually packaged. These items will be distributed by Joey, out of his small bus, to the homeless in Sioux Falls.  Let's help Joey with his mission of sharing the Love of Jesus Christ by providing him with some of the supplies he needs.
Matthew 25:40 - "The King will reply, 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.' Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Mission & Outreach board.
