Our Worship


God & the people of Zion invite you to worship with us Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m.

Each Sunday, we gather to sing praises, to pray together for the world and for one another. We listen to & read scripture, offer & give thanks for God’s generous gifts — our time, our talents and our possessions. We hear a message relevant to all ages. During the first and third Sundays, we celebrate Holy Communion.

Are you looking for a church home? We are praying that God leads you to Zion. There is a place for you, here.

Yoked Together


"We pull together as one."

We children of God are yoked together in Christ through our baptism. Together, we can help one another and support one another in the work that God causes us to do. We are all yoked together through our baptism, which allows us together to pull more.

Together, we carry a yoke and that yoke helps us to be directed. And who directs us? God helps us to pull together. The thing about a yoke is that when one animal gets tired and slows down a bit, the lead animal also slows down to give that tired animal a rest.

In this case, the farmer (God) gives us a rest. For us, a yoke helps us to help one another to go in the direction that God wants us to go. We never have to make those choices and decisions alone because we have each other.

Refer to Matthew, 11 verses 28 to 30:

Come to me all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me for I am gentle and humble in a heart and you will find rest for your souls, for my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
