Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of this church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. Church members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as serving as a cleaning angel, to visiting home and hospital-bound Zion members. If you see a ministry that matches your time and talents or if you feel you are called to start a new ministry, call the Parish Office and someone will contact you regarding your interests.
