Sundays at Zion

Worship

The worship experience at Zion UMC has contemporary and traditional elements. Service begins each Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m. 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 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.  Nursery service is provided from 9 a.m. until noon for newborns through age 4.

Children’s Groups

  • Early Primary (for children 3-4 years old)
  • Pre K-3rd Grade
  • 4th-8th Grade
  • Young Adults – High School (9-12)

Adult’s Groups

  • The Boot Class studies the pastor’s sermon text for the day as the departure for discussion. It is very informal and is dependent on individuals sharing their understanding of the scripture reading.
  • The Sisters in Spirit class is geared toward adult women and is currently reading “The Gift of Years:” by Joan Chittister. This looks at the many facets of the aging process, from purposes and challenges to struggles and surprises.
  • Zion’s Gate uses the Wired Word curriculum to consider current events through the eyes of Christian faith. A majoy 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.
  • The Bible Explorers class will study the Parables of Jesus in the Gospel of Luke using the culture of the Middle East to help us better understand what the Parables tell us.

Small Groups

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