  • Maundy Thursday Worship for April 9

    Maundy Thursday Worship for April 9 Our Lenten observance comes to an end on Maundy Thursday, and we gather with Christians around the world to celebrate the Three Days of Jesus’ death and resurrection. Tonight we remember Christ’s last meal with his disciples, but the central focus is his commandment that we live out the promise embodied in this meal. As Jesus washed his disciples’ feet, so we are called to give and receive love in humble service to one another. Formed into a new body in Christ through this holy meal, we are transformed by ... more
  • Sunday Worship for April 5

    Sunday Worship for April 5 Today, we encounter the paradox that defines our faith: Jesus Christ is glorified king and humiliated servant. We too are full of paradox: like Peter, we fervently desire to follow Christ, but find ourselves afraid, denying God. We wave palms in celebration today as Christ comes into our midst, and we follow with trepidation as his path leads to death on the cross. Amid it all we are invited into this paradoxical promise of life through Christ’s broken body and outpoured love in a meal of bread and wine. We ... more

General Information

What to Wear

When you visit Zion on a Sunday morning, there’s no need to worry about what you should wear. Wear whatever makes you comfortable. You’ll see people in the pews dressed in all styles—from shorts to jeans to khakis to business suits in all worship services at Zion.

When you Arrive

  • When you come into the Church building on a Sunday morning, someone will greet you just outside and/or just inside outer door.
  • Stop by the information desk in the lobby/narthex if you have any questions, it is usually staffed before and after each Sunday service.
  • A printed order of service and a weekly announcement sheet is available at the door to the worship space.
  • If you need a large print copy of the order of service or a hearing device, please ask an usher.

During the Service

  • Each service will normally include singing, Bible reading(s), some prayers and an easy to listen to sermon or message.
  • Near the beginning, the pastor will invite you to greet the people sitting around you, but no one will single you out as a visitor.
  • We don’t expect visitors to support the congregation financially, so feel free to pass the offering plate on when it comes down your row. Many members of the congregation contribute directly through their bank accounts so you won’t be the only one passing it on.
  • Coffee is served in and just outside Fellowship Hall after each service.

Monday Nights at Marysville

During June, July & August services are also held each Monday evening at 7pm at the Historic Marysville Church, on County Road 9 between Buffalo and Waverly.
