About Us

Our congregation hails from a wide farmland area around the Baltic, Ragersville and Sugarcreek disctrict. Local schools include Baltic, Dundee, Miller, and Ragersville Elementaries; and Garaway 7-12 (Garaway Pirates!) in Sugarcreek, Ohio.

Garaway local schools near Zion UCC, New BedfordZion UCC of New Bedford is a part of a fellowship group we call 4UCC4 Christ, along with Renners UCC, Baltic UCC and Fiat UCC. Meeting once each month, we sponsor the Pirate Power Packs – backpacks for local elementary children filled with enough food to get them by during non-school hours.

Every October we host a Homecoming, where past members come back and visit their old haunts. Everyone was a bit surprised this year when they heard we’ve entered the electronic age with our own website!

We’re fortunate to have a pastor who’s open to suggestion! Pastor Patrick will hold Bible Studies or work with small groups who have an interest in exploring subjects in depth.

Visit our Events page, where you’ll find out about upcoming summertime picnics, social gatherings, and occasional “vacation” days.

And if you’re a past member, we are looking for old photos to publish on our website. If you’re willing to share your photos, please contact us at manager@zionucc.org.

Hope to meet you soon ~ stop by and visit with us any Sunday at 10:30 am!
