First Time Visitor?

 Visiting a new church can be intimidating:
What should I wear? Where do I park? How about childcare?

Here are some answers to some of those questions.
If you have other questions, don’t hesitate to contact us!

 

What You Can Expect

As you come through the front door you can expect to see a warm, welcoming area in the Lower Commons.  You can also expect to be greeted by someone who is genuinely glad you came.  As you go up the stairs or take the elevator to the Upper Commons, you can find information and conversation if you’re interested, and a seat in the sanctuary when you’re ready. There we hope you’ll experience fulfilling moments of contemplation and community - a reconnection with God, yourself, and your neighbor.

As a visitor you will never be singled out or asked to introduce yourself.

 

When are services?

We gather to worship on Sunday mornings at 8 and 10:30 am. Worship lasts, on average, about an hour. There is a coffee hour in Fellowship Hall (just below the sanctuary) between services.

 

What should I wear?

God doesn’t care what you wear to church, and neither do we! Dress as casually or formally as you feel comfortable. Most folks are somewhere in the middle.

 

How do I get there and where should I park?

Zion UCC is at the corner of Washington and Springfield Avenues.  Directions are available at the bottom of the page.  When you arrive, feel free to park in the front parking lot or the two parking lots behind the church.  Handicapped parking is available next to the church entrance.

 

Is there childcare for younger children?

We welcome children of all ages in the sanctuary during our worship services.  Nursery care is available every Sunday during services for infants through pre-kindergarten-age children.  If you need a quiet space to sit with your child during the service, there is a room located just off the Narthex where you can see and hear the worship service.  This room is available for nursing mothers as well as any parents with small children.

 

Is there Sunday School?

We offer Christian education for all ages from 9:15 to 10:15 during the school year.  In June, July, and August we offer a Children's Chapel for Preschool through Grade 5.

 

What about Communion?

At Zion Church we celebrate Communion on the first Sunday of the month, as well as on Christmas Eve and Easter.  We welcome anyone who has chosen to follow Jesus Christ to come to the table.  Children are free to participate in the sacrament at the discretion of their parents.  We offer grape juice in place of wine for those who choose it.
