Sunday morning begins with adult education at 9:00am on the lower level. Worship in the sanctuary begins at 10am with announcements and the ringing of the tower bell.
Children's time is at the beginning of the service, after which kids can continue on to their own Christian education time, or stay with their parents.
Listening devices are available for those who need a little help hearing clearly.
Dress as you feel comfortable. Some of our members wear jeans and t-shirts and others wear dresses or suits. Come as you are.
We strive to welcome all, including those who have often been ignored or shunned by the church.
We serve communion on the first Sunday of every month, and also on Holy days like Easter and Christmas. We have an open table, meaning if you have a belief in Jesus, you are welcome to participate regardless of denomination or church affiliation. Parents may decide if they want their children to take communion or receive a blessings
from the pastor .
Frequently , we serve communion by passing bread and trays with both wine and grape juice through the pews. Occasionally, we have intinction, where everyone comes forward to dip the bread in a cup or chalice filled with grape juice. If you join us on a communion Sunday, just look in the bulletin for
instructions for that day.
The most important thing to remember about
communion? You are welcome at God's table.
Music is a major part of our worship life at Zion. Since Zion’s church family is such a unique blend of worshipers from various faith backgrounds and diverse tastes in music, we incorporate newer songs, as well as, traditional hymns. During the school
year, our worship services are enhanced by Zion’s Chancel Choir. The second Sunday
of the month we usually use a less formal worship format to incorporate different styles of worship and music. During the summer months, we include soloists or small groups and we invite the congregation to suggest hymns for upcoming services.
One of the highlights of the choir year is the annual Christmas cantata, which is normally presented on the 3rd or 4th Sunday in December.
Choir rehearsals are held at 5:30 on Sunday evenings during the school year. We also have an instrumental ensemble that assists with worship on the 4th Sunday of the month. If you are interested in singing in the choir or playing an instrument with the ensemble, contact our Choir Director, Diane Lazorchak, for more information.
Zion’s bell choir is a dedicated and fun group of approximately 10 ringers who participate in a 3-octave bell and handchime choir. We practice Wednesday evenings with our main goal being to enhance Sunday worship and have fun doing it. Our main focus of course is sacred music, some traditional and some praise, but we also have played Phantom of the Opera, Lady Gaga’s Just Dance, and Frozen’s Let it Go to name a few for our congregation’s enjoyment. Reading music is not required, and we are always open to new ringers! For more information, please contact our church office.
