Worship

Sundays at 9am

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.

Welcome!

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.
