SUNDAYS AT ZION

Worship

The worship experience at Zion UMC has contemporary and traditional elements. Sunday School begins each Sunday morning(Set-May) at 9:15 AM followed by Worship service at 10:30 AM. Our service has elements of both styles of worship and praise.

We invite you to join us in the celebration of the Sacrament of Holy Communion on the first Sunday of each month. We practice Open Communion (sometimes called “The Lord’s Supper”), meaning that everyone is welcome to partake.  We celebrate with bread and grape juice (no alcohol).  If you require gluten-free communion wafers, please let us know so we can be of assistance.

Your children are welcome at Zion.  The nursery is located at the end of the west wing of the building.

Christian Education

*Sunday School classes meet throughout the school year, from September to May, and have a break during the summer months. Our kick-off Sunday is the second week of September.

*We continue to offer a Children’s Message during our Sunday morning worship services throughout the summer months. We have Sunday school options for toddlers through adults from September through May. Our Sunday school hour begins at 9:15 a.m.

Children’s & Youth Groups

  • Pre-k through 5th Grade
  • 6th through 12th Grade

Adult’s Groups

  • Zion’s Gate uses the Wired Word curriculum to consider current events through the eyes of the Christian faith. A major news story is examined and then discussed with reference to the Bible and our own faith experiences as Christians who have to contend with secular society.
  • Explorers in Spirit adult bible study class focuses on how the information contained in books or selections from the Bible increase our understanding of what it means to be a Christian. These studies help us peel back 2000 years of history so that we have a better understanding of the original intent of each bible passage and how these lessons apply to the modern Christian. By doing so, we have a better understanding of what Christian’s believe and of our mission as Christ’s disciples. The class meets in the recently renovated Sisters in Spirit room in the Upper West Wing of the church (just West of the Fellowship Hall). Studies are led by Wayne Seames and Connie Sherwood.

Small Groups

  • The Tuesday Morning Group meets at 6:30 a.m. each Tuesday morning. Contact person: Don Miller.
