COVID-19 UPDATE: Outdoor Worship for Summer 2021
Beginning Easter Sunday (April 4) 2021, we will worship outdoors on our south lawn every Sunday morning at 10 a.m.
Those who choose to attend in-person outdoor worship should be prepared to wear a mask anytime there's a chance of interacting with people not in your household. When arrriving, leaving, and greeting others, masks are required. Once you are settled in your seats, you may remove your masks.
We invite you to bring chairs or blankets, snacks and beverages, or anything else you like. Children who are not old enough for kindergarten should remain with their families during the service. Kids are welcome to move around, and we appreciate that they will not always be quiet! Children in grades K through 5 are invited to participate in Sunday School during the sermon, where they will be cared for by one of our trained and vetted teachers.
We know how it feels to be anxious and overwhelmed in a world where it feels like so much is wrong.
The Bible says that God is love and that love drives out fear, but some people are afraid of God, or at least afraid of church. Can a church really be a spiritual community, one that is truly open to all, a place to learn and grow and find peace and make a difference?
At Zion UCC we are discovering that life is meaningful, even when it's not easy. We are finding our purpose as we respond to God's invitation to "do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with God” in ways big and small.
For us, this means that our connection to the Divine is intrinsically connected to how we treat other people and how we react to injustice in the world. Together we are growing deeper in our faith, more compassionate in our relationships, and bolder in our work to right wrongs. As we do this together, we really are finding lasting joy and participating in the healing of the world. And it will be even better if you join us. No matter who you are, or where you are on your journey, you are wanted here. Give us a chance to show you what a difference church can make for you.
