Cooking Classes at Zion

By on December 30, 2014 in News & Musings


For more than eight years, Zion has hosted dinner for the neighborhood on Wednesday nights. These meals are an important part of our congregational identity and a good resource for our neighbors. People gather for good food, but also for conversation and meetings. There is a story time for kids before dinner and Recovery Worship afterwards. Regulars enter the Banquet Room confident that they will be known and welcome. Visitors find recognition and gladness.

We are exploring new partnerships for 2015! Different cooking/feeding organizations will take turns preparing and serving the meal. We will learn from people passionate about making sure food is affordable, healthy, and delicious.

This new experiment kicks off with Cooking Matters, an extension program at the U of M. They begin a 6 week cooking course on January 28. Participants will meet at 4:00pm to discuss the menu and nutrition while preparing the food. Then participants┬áreceive a bag of the same groceries so they can practice what they’ve learned in their own kitchens that week.

If this opportunity interests you, contact Pastor Meta to learn more. Each 6 week series has 15 openings, so sign up by mid-January to reserve your spot! Phone: 612-824-1017 Email:

If you haven’t joined us for dinner yet, please do. It’s a great way to meet neighbors and avoid dish duty at home!
