A healthy spiritual life needs three basics: 1) Worship, 2) Receiving, 3) Giving.  

Worship

We want everyone to participate in our Lord's Day worship. God calls all men everywhere to worship him through Jesus Christ his son, whom he has exalted and given all glory and honor. The most basic thing you do as a Christian is just show up in the assembly of the church, and join your voice with others who name that Name which is above every name.

Receiving

We want everyone to find some way to receive from others regularly. Be involved in one of Zion's three Fellowships for instruction and encouragement. Be involved in a prayer group, or small group Bible study. Learn from those equipped to teach, and grow into what it means to follow Jesus faithfully, day-to-day.

Giving

We want everyone to find a way to give to others. Volunteer with the Foodnet distribution on Saturday mornings, take meals to the sick, visit the widow and orphan in their distress. We always welcome volunteers to help with our children and youth programs. Because we are committed to the safety and security of our children, all volunteers in children's ministries are required to submit to a background check and either attend a child protection training session, or complete a 2-hour online training session, Stewards of Children.
