A New Opportunity
to Help those in Need.
Mr. Jon Felz, one of our new
members, has brought dinner for
24-30 men to the Patterson’s Men Shelter for many years. It is always the second Sunday of each month. We are inviting your participation
in whatever way you can assist.
You may get in touch with him through the Zion office at 201-664-1325 with any questions about helping and needs.
In addition to help with meals the shelter accepts toiletries and used men’s clothing in good condition. Flynn’s Deli has stepped up to participate with us and is giving us their bread at the close of the 2nd Saturday each month.
Zion is very blessed to have a
congregation that continues to reach out and help those who are in need. It is a beautiful example of what Jesus would want us to do. Thank you!
Electronic Giving, fast, easy and secure. Help us to continue spreading the love of Jesus.
Thank You, to the many members who have graciously continued to support our church in these troubled times. We sincerely thank you for all the support and prayers.
We have added an electronic giving option for Family Assistance Click here and look for the fund you would like to contribute to. Follow secure and easy instructions. We have always been blessed at Zion to be able to help those in need.
Sponsoring Altar Flowers.
We have created a new page for the Lydia Altar Guild. This will allow us to go back to the tradition of sponsoring the altar flowers in thanksgiving, celebration or in memory of loved ones.
On the page you will find a form to fill out. You do not have to specify a date. Cost for the altar flowers remains $30. When you click the donation button, it will take you to a secure form. The Lydia Altar Guild has been added as an option to direct your funds.
