  • Thy Will Be Done

    With a late Easter (April 22) comes a later start for the Lenten season. March 6 will be the day marked with ashes as we begin the 40 day journey to Easter. On Ash Wednesday and all following Wednesdays during Lent, worship at Zion is at noon (reflective worship of scripture, hymns and message), 5pm (interactive worship for young children and families), and 6:30pm (scripture, message, and Holden Evening Prayer).  All of the regular Wednesday activities and rehearsals continue during Lent with a few schedule changes to accommodate the worship schedule. The Wednesday night meal is open to all, serving from 5-6:15pm in the Fellowship Hall. Worship this year will center around Jesus’ prayer before he went to the cross: “Not as I will, but as you will.” We seek to do God’s will in our lives everyday, no matter who we are. We will hear about God’s will at work among us from the stories of biblical characters, from both the ... more

thy will be done

On Wednesdays during Lent there are three worship services to choose from: 
  • The traditional worship service at noon is ideal for those who can take a moment to worship over the lunch hour and for those who prefer being out during the day more than at night. It is a reflective worship of scripture, hymns and message. 
  • The Family Express worship service at 5pm includes interactive activity stations, designed to help families of all sizes, ages and stages explore and grow their faith both together and as individuals and learn what Lent is all about. 
  • The Holden Evening service at 6:30pm includes scripture, message, and Holden Evening Prayer. 
All of the regular Wednesday activities and rehearsals continue during Lent with a few schedule changes to accommodate the worship schedule. The Wednesday night meal is open to all, serving from 5-6:15pm in the Fellowship Hall.

Worship this year will center around Jesus’ prayer before he went to the cross: "Not as I will, but as you will." We seek to do God's will in our lives everyday, no matter who we are. 

At noon and 6:30pm we will hear about God's will at work among us from the stories of biblical characters, from both Old and New Testament. Monologues from these characters will give us a glimpse of how we can live, centering our lives around God's will.
  • March 13 - How do I live up to the plans God has for me? (Davids story, told by Dave Wright)
  • March 20 - What is my role in the world? (Mary's story, told by Nicolle Johnson)
  • March 27 - Am I really "enough" to do God's work in the world? (Moses' story, told by Andrew Jacobsen)
  • April 3 - My world is turned upside down! Now what? (Paul's story, told by Paul Herda)
  • April 10 - I hear God's call: how do I respond? (Lydia's story, told by Tori Herda)
At 5pm we will hear the stories from the Spark Story Bible.
