Ministries at Zion
From young families meeting the daily challenges of new parenthood, to our infirm and homebound members who are no longer able to attend regular church services, our needs as a congregation are diverse, and we are committed to serving and meeting the needs of our church family.
Here are some ways that you can get involved at Zion!
