Opportunities to share…

Zion has embarked on a Congregational Growth Initiative. The changes in our society and the role of the church in our world require that we embrace our differences and provide each member an opportunity to serve & share in their own way. With this in mind, we have have facilitated the growth of a number of small group opportunities. If you have any ideas for small groups you would like to see started, contact the church office. The Small Groups currently meeting are:

CHILDREN’S MINISTRY GROUP – The group organizes, directs, produces, and stages the weekly Children’s Ministry program. The message, large group activities, and music are especially designed for children. Read about our children’s education ministry. (Contact person is Helga Morrison)

GARDEN MINISTRY – This ministry is a summer ministry that takes advantage of our growing season.   We ask people of our congregation to consider bringing in a portion of their harvest on Sunday mornings for the Garden Ministry table.  Others who do not have gardens can share in this bounty by making a donation.  This year we hope to make the “Food Connection” as the proceeds from Garden Ministry will be added to our World Hunger offerings.  (Contact person is Beverly Besler)

MEN’S GROUP – Men of the congregation meet informally for breakfast the first Saturday of each month. They make plans to actively participate in church-related activities such as the Chicken BBQ fundraiser. The Men’s Group helps out with many of  our church property improvements that are necessary. The group is also instrumental in helping with food distributed to needy families and the Food Bank at holiday times. (Contact person is Fran King)

CIRCLE OF FRIENDS – This adult group of supportive and caring Christian women was formed to look at what life has to offer in the middle years and after.
