When You Visit

Note: Right now, if you want to visit us, it may be online but we also have resumed on-site worship at 8:30 and 10:45 AM. You can also visit the “Worship” page on this site to watch the most recent worship service.

Zion is an urban church in a vibrant and diverse 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 usually upstairs in the sanctuary. Whether you attend the more traditional early service (at 8:30 AM) or the more contemporary service (currently outdoors at 10:45 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 real presence with us as we gather. Young children are invited to join in that for a blessing.
