Mount Zion has a lot to offer, whether it’s worshiping together, creating inspirational music, engaging with youth, serving our community or just having fun! We’ve got something for everyone.
INSIDE THE CHURCH
Traditional Worship Service
The 10:15 a.m. weekly worship service consists of music, children’s time, prayer and the pastor’s sermon. Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month. All are welcome to participate.
Families First Service
Families First Church is a new kind of fun and engaging worship service that uses interactive ministry to connect with families with young children. It’s held in the sanctuary from 9-9:45 a.m. on the third Sunday morning of the month.
Three adult classes meet each Sunday–a basic bible study (held in the Social Hall), short-term studies focusing on timely issues (held in the Multi-Purpose Room) and the New Spirits Class that engages in a variety of short-term studies that focus on spiritual formation (held downstairs, last room on the right).
In addition to Sunday services, Mount Zion also conducts Food and Faith Groups, Tuesday Morning Bible Study held at 10:30 a.m. in the Social Hall over coffee, Tuesday Evening Prayer and Praise held in sanctuary at 7:30 p.m., Men’s Bible Study at 8 a.m. on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month in the Social Hall and two women’s groups—Women of Faith, which meets on Monday nights at 7 p.m., and the United Methodist Women, which meets periodically.
