The start of this New Year is an opportunity to express heartfelt thanks on behalf of Zion Church for the generosity of our members and friends for your continued support of the Organ Fund in 2015. With over $29,000 in contributions throughout the year, Zion was able to meet its monthly organ loan commitments. We are also grateful for the generous public support of our fundraising events and activities that benefit the Organ Fund, such as the Hamburg Choir Concert, the Christkindlmarkt raffle, and proceeds donated by Christkindlmarkt vendors. Every dollar raised from these activities is greatly appreciated and helps to defray our organ costs.

This year we look forward to a very special Gala Fundraising Event on Saturday, April 16, 2016. The event will begin with an Organ Recital at 3:00 p.m. featuring Henry Lowe, well-known organist and music director at Episcopal Church of the Redeemer on North Charles Street. The recital is open to the public for a $15.00 admission, and offers an exceptional opportunity to hear a diverse and vibrant program on Zion’s acclaimed organ.

The celebration continues with an authentic German Beef Rouladen Dinner at 5:00 p.m. in Zion’s historic Adlersaal. The dinner, which requires a reservation, includes a three-course meal and a complimentary wine or beer for $50.00 per person. A special $60.00 ticket will be available, which includes concert admission, plus the dinner. Seating for the dinner is limited and requires advance reservation and payment. Please R.S.V.P. by April 8, 2016.
Zion Church invites you to enjoy an afternoon of fine music and authentic German cuisine in an old world atmosphere. Please make plans today and invite your family and friends to join you for this festive event. Your attendance will ensure the preservation of quality organ music at Zion Church.
