When You Visit

Zion is an urban church in a vibrant neighborhood. Members come from around the Fox Valley region and gather on Sunday mornings to focus on God’s grace in Jesus, refresh their spirits and renew connections with other people. You’ll come into our parking lot  and come through the main doors to find a group of friendly people who love Jesus, each other and will be glad to meet you. We are a Reconciling in Christ congregation – a status that declares that all people are welcome (regardless of age, economic status, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, marital status, etc.) to participate fully in the life of this church. This is Christ’s church and Christ welcomes all to join in his work.

Worship is upstairs in the sanctuary. Whether you attend the more traditional early service (at 8:30 AM) or the more contemporary service (at 10:15 AM), we use both printed folders as well as projection screens to allow you to participate in a way that frees you up to engage worship fully. We openly commune all who wish to participate in communion by sharing in a piece of bread and a drink of wine or grape juice to honor Christ’s presence with us as we gather. Young children are invited to join in that for a blessing.

Between services expect fellowship with coffee, juice, snacks and a chance to see old friends or make new ones. The life of people at Zion includes loving God and each other and we try to make a chance to do both every Sunday!
