Portico Cross

A Note of History: On a wall inside the portico entrance of our church stands a beautiful cross. This morning we were graced with the presence of the craftsman who built the cross many years ago.

For a short time Ed Berthold (a former member) was a custodian at Zion's previous facility on Elizabeth street. While going about his work he discovered some wooden shelves tucked away that came from Zion's first church building from an earlier time.

With loving care he disssembled those shelves and fashioned them into the beautiful cross in our portico entrance.

Ed and his wife Bonnie were in town for a reunion this weekend and joined us for worship this morning. So we took a moment to learn the story behind this work of art and snap a picture of the artist and his work. Thanks Ed!
