Come & Worship: Sundays at 9:30am
Zion is a congregation of people growing in faith to reach out in love
Journey with Jesus through his last supper with his closest disciples, his shaming public death and his resurrection in love. Holy Week is about participation, not perfection. Discover Christ with you as you are—sinner and saint; brokenhearted and healer; past, present, and future.
Sundays at 9:30am
In worship, Jesus is really present—feeding, healing, and making us new in love, for the sake of the world.
Worship is relaxed and inclusive, with room for kids and their wiggles. Some Sundays the choir sings and the organ plays. Other Sundays the praise ensemble makes a joyful noise. Every Sunday, we feast at the Lord’s table of forgiveness and life.

a word from our Pastor
Welcome to Zion! I’m glad you’re here. It can be stressful to seek a new spiritual home. But don’t be afraid. Your deepest self, hidden in Christ with God, is guiding you.
I was drawn to Zion because of peoples’ open, trusting spirit and heart for this neighborhood.
Come and see. Maybe God has prepared a place for you here too.
Pastor Clark Olson-Smith
