Guest Information:


Childcare is available for ages 7 and under during 11:00 services in the nursery room located on the second floor. 

Children’s activity bags for ages 3 and up are available at Zion’s Zebra located in the lobby.

Hearing assistance devices and large print bulletins are available for your convenience.  

Restrooms are located in the lobby and in the hallway near the rear entrance of  the church.

As you may have noticed, the Face Lift Team has begun the work of making Zion Church more

welcoming for members and guests. Furniture was moved in the lobby to create a less obstructed flow for

people as they greet each other, and as they use the coat area and the men's restroom.  

The Ten Commandments sign will be hung again, when we are sure where the furniture will stay.  

If you have ideas for the Face Lift Team, please contact Trudy Gass at 717-805 3011.

us on Sunday, November 7th at 4 PM.  They will be singing a blend of gospel songs along
with a Veteran’s Day tribute to honor our veterans.  There is no charge to attend, there will
be a “free will” offering after the concert.

recognizing veterans will be a part of each service.  If you served in any branch of the military,
present or past, and would like your photo included in the slide presentation please put your
