Welcome to Our Church

We are called together by Christ
as a community of hopeful...believers, 
loving what he loved, 
living what he taught, 
striving to be faithful servants of God
in our time and place. 

(from A Song of Faith, United Church of Canada)

 We acknowledge that we worship on the traditional territory of the Anishinabe, the Mississauga of the New Credit, and Attiwonderonk Nations, on land that was subject to Treaty 3 an area also known as the Between the Lakes Purchase.
We give thanks for these nations and for the people today who share and care for the land and its resources.

What We Believe

Zion United Church is a congregation of The United Church of Canada. Within the United Church, and within each congregation, we find a broad spectrum of theological perspectives, which is one of the strengths of the denomination that lives its faith by embracing diversity.

CHURCH NEWS 

Message from the Praising Team 

Summer worship services will be held at 9:30 a.m. in Fellowship Hall during July and for the last two Sundays in August. A summary of the format is below.

August 2022:

•     While Rev. Maggie is on vacation from August 4 to 24, there will be pastoral care coverage provided. 

•     For Sunday, August 7 and Sunday, August 14, Zion will not be open.  Pre-recorded worship services prepared by participating local United churches will be uploaded to Zion's YouTube channel for Sunday morning viewing.

•     On August 21, Zion will open for in-person only worship in Fellowship Hall.  Zion will welcome a guest minister at this service.

•     On August 28, Zion will open for in-person worship in Fellowship Hall.  A pre-recorded service will be viewed, which will be posted on Zion’s YouTube page.  Rev. Maggie will be present at this service, having just returned from vacation. 

•     The Praising Team is seeking one volunteer to read scripture and one usher for each service for the August 21 and August 28 services.

During times of in-person gatherings, these Covid 19 protocols will be in place for your safety: masking, physical distancing, hand sanitizer, and open windows for ventilation. 

For those of you who have been enjoying virtual worship from the comfort of your home, please be encouraged to select from a number of previously recorded Sunday services found on Zion’s YouTube channel (tinyurl.com/zionunited), or virtually visit another community of faith of your choice.

The Praising Team wishes to express their gratitude to the Zion community of faith for your encouragement and support during the many Covid-19 challenges and pivots. Our prayer is that each one of you experience a summer filled with God’s rest and renewal.
