Zion women will enjoy our next Make and Take, hosted by Teresa Ghormley, featuring homemade bath products.

The Zion Shakespeare Club will take an excursion to watch the National Theater Live! production of King Lear, starring Ian McKellen. Join us at the Grand, get comfy in the dream lounger seats, and munch some of the world’s least inexpensive popcorn. We'll watch the poor old King descend in to madness, be betrayed by his treacherous daughters, and finally turn a corner towards repentance and forgiveness. How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child!
Join us for a weekend at the cabin in Grand Lake. Will we get to the top of Mount Ida this year? Or will 2017's wind and snow return to drive us back again? Hike or do not hike.
