Worshiping God in community is the foundation of our life in Christ.
Our Sunday service begins at 9:15 a.m. This liturgy offers Holy Eucharist and follows 'Rite 2,' in the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer. We are back on Zoom as of January 2022. We will offer a Godly Play Service on February 6th on Zoom.
Worship at Zion
Can I receive communion in this church?
Yes! We process up to the altar and either stand or kneel where we are offered consecrated bread and wine. You may choose either or both. (During the COVID-19 pandemic we are only offering the consecrated bread.) If you choose not to receive the bread you will be offered a blessing. Those unable to come to the altar should notify an usher and the sacraments will be brought to you.
We are pleased to offer gluten-free wafers for people with dietary sensitivities. Please make the request when you take communion.
Will my children be welcome?
Yes! At Zion we view children as a gift from God and believe that it is vitally important that they be fully included in church life. Year round we offer nursery care at our 9:15am service. The nursery is staffed with two experienced child care providers. From September until June we provide Godly Play stories once per month at 10:15 a.m. There are religious children's books, and clipboards with crayons and paper, in a basket in the back of the church.
Zion complies with safe church practices through background checks of all adults who volunteer to assist in any of our programs for children or other vulnerable persons.
Sunday Worship at 9:15 a.m.
We are now worshipping in Zion Park. The service will be aired on Facebook Live. If inclement weather is impending, we will worship on Zoom. Contact us for a link to the service. Services will later be posted on Facebook.
