Zion is offering Hurricane Relief Supplies in the Fellowship Hall. The supplies are free and they will be available until they run out.

Attention ECC Preschool and VPK Families,

We pray that everyone has stayed safe during these past few days and that you are all finding help in recovering after Hurricane Irma.

Zion has been truly blessed during this process as we have regained power to the church and school, allowing us to reach out to you and the community.

We know that Lee County schools are not resuming until September 25, and we understand your concerns for childcare since many of you are going back to work.

While we would love to help as many people in the community as possible, we can only do what the ECC and our staff is capable of doing.

This being said, we will be opening the Pre-school and VPK on MONDAY 9/18 for normal operations.

This is PRE-SCHOOL AND VPK ONLY. (Regular Hours)

We hope to see as many of you as possible, but we understand that everyone has been affected differently and may not be able to make it to school. (Please text Mrs. Wallace at 239-850-9273 if this applies to you. She is having trouble getting phone calls and emails, so texts work best.)

Some of you have reached out to us regarding Extended Care for school-age children. Once again, we understand that there is a need for childcare, but we have LIMITED SPOTS for this program. If your School-Age child is CURRENTLY ENROLLED in the Extended Care program, please contact Mrs. Wallace regarding your needs.

Please understand that we are trying our best to accommodate everyone, but many of our staff members are going through the same difficulties and set-backs that you are.

Thank you for understanding, and may God continue to watch over all of us in this process.

Thank you, Zion ECC

God’s Blessings on your day!
