Televised Services

Plans are developing for at least one of Zion’s Christmas services to be televised and released as a video. Watch future newsletters for further information.

The foregoing schedule has been developed in light of this year’s concerns regarding COVID-19 and remembering that Zion is a congregation with a public ministry and outreach. Please share this information with your friends and neighbors.
