We will be talking about different faith topics that will be presented by the leader. This is a practice that is going back to Reformation times of gathering in a public setting and talking/debating theological topics.
Although a relatively new active committee at Zion, we strive to keep our members and visitors safe. Our chair person has consulted with both the East Hempfield EMS coordinator and Susquehanna EMS (our area provider).
Members have participated in several safety seminars. An assisting committee member is a trained EMS responder. Our committee is divided into three areas of concern: fire safety, first aid and security. A Council Implementation Team instructs and guides our membership as we cope with COVID-19. Recently, more than one dozen committee members have been trained in the use of our on-site AED.
Through study of biblical passage, we examine and discuss the ideas, meanings and words of the text. As an informal gathering filled with open-minded theology, we provide interpretations and histories both modern and old.
Context and comparison form individual interpretations, and how passages apply to present personal circumstances.
Within this safe space, learning is encouraged as we cultivate group relationships to better understand each other and our faith.
As we develop an open dialogue that shares political and sociological perspectives, we apply our life experiences of faith toward a better understanding of the world around us.
Our Sunday morning forums are centered on community & faith—a celebration of diversity and perspective.
We aspire to an expanded ministry with a dedication to Christian love and support for all. From gathering to visiting, and providing faith-based counseling, we have an extensive level of outreach to our congregation.
Sunday School, Confirmation and First Communion classes are featured programs for our youth congregants, as well as, Vacation Bible Schools and Summer Camperships. We have a diverse series of preparedness classes that focus on faith and our future as a unified congregation.
