Zion lives by its mission belief that it is “Sharing and Growing in God’s Love” and it wants you to share in that love and grow in knowing it more and more every day.  We invite you to come worship with us - there's a place for you here!  (See worship for worship times and more info.)  See the current month's calendar under newsletters for scheduling information.   Select the "Bulletins Archive" tab to check out the Sunday bulletin.



                Our logo is “Christ for All Generations, Zion for all Generations”.  For us this means that Jesus came to love all people. He suffered much that people might know the love and grace of God.  He did not place restrictions on who could know God.  He was for all the people he encountered and whoever has trusted him has come to know the amazing love of God. This news of Jesus has sounded for people for two thousand years and we trust that it will continue throughout all human history.  Jesus has been caring for all generations and because he is we want to be too. We welcome the high and the lowly, the rich and the poor, all the people in our community; because we believe that Christ is for all and we should be too.


Since we are Christ’s body in this place we want to include people of every generation, race and gender in our mission of having God’s news heard, shared, absorbed and acted upon by every member of the body of Christ.  Our vision is that everyone in the congregation and all the people with whom we share life know the amazing and wonderful love of God. We do not want human divisions or distinctions to keep anyone from knowing God’s love.
