Adult Faith Formation
Growing in your faith does not stop after confirmation. At Zion we provide multiple types of faith education for adults. From bible studies to workshops, we are sure to have something to help you grow in your faith.

Food Faith Family (FFF) Serving Teams
wednesdays @ 5:00 pm (Sept - May)
*Due to COVID-19 Restrictions and Safety concerns-FFF is not currently being offered on Wednesday evenings. Be watching our website and Facebook page for new information for Fall 2021.
Wednesdays are our busiest night for education here at Zion and all activities take place around a meal at 5:15 p.m. called Food, Faith, and Family (FFF). Meals are inexpensive ($3 per person or $12 maximum per family) and are prepared by serving groups consisting of 3-4 Zion families.
FFF is a great opportunity to join in fellowship and get to know fellow Zion members. Activities for youth on Wednesdays include games after supper, Church School, Confirmation, and LYO. Also, there is typically a Bible study or some kind of learning event for adults.
New families are always welcomed to join an existing FFF Serving Group or form a new one. Message us for more info.
Home Communion Ministry
approximately 1 hour/month (per person/couple)
Home Communion Ministry provides communion to the homebound members of Zion. This is a very important ministry and so easy to do.
- Volunteers are paired up with a homebound individual or couple, usually by the pastors. If the volunteer has a connection with someone who is homebound, that assignment can be made or meet someone new.
- Volunteers can choose to visit one household or more - whatever works best for you.
- Pastors will go over the instructions with volunteer prior to their first homebound visit.
- Home communion kits are prepared and available for pick-up when it works for the volunteer.
- Scripts are available for both the volunteer & the homebound member.
- Plan for about an hour visit with the assigned homebound member (they will love to visit with you).
- When you have completed your visit, just let the office know and bring back the home communion kit when you come to church next.
Message us if you are interested in assisting with this ministry or just want more info.
If you are homebound and would like to receive communion, let us know and we will get you connected.
