Welcome to Zion UMC!

Love God, love neighbor.

It sounds like a nice little play on words like someone was sitting around one day and came up with a great saying for a church to put on its stationary. Honestly, it is. But it’s more than that. 

It’s a way of life born from the idea that what Jesus taught was not just a lot of pretty words and poetic ideas, they were, and still are a Way of Life, a Way of Being, a Way to understand God and his Creation. We not only believe it, but we try to live it in our homes, our church, and our community. For us, this is a journey that we have chosen to take, following in the spiritual way of Jesus life and teachings. 

And we invite you to join us.

In Grace and peace,


Pastor Michael

Moving Forward

On June 14th, Zion UMC opened the doors again for worship. For three months, we along with many other churches, used the internet and other means to continue sharing the worship experience with our church. We began services on that day with the goal in mind that when the right time came, we would begin other activities as the situation proved safe enough. After much consideration and prayer, we believe that time is now.

We are going to begin on October 25th with worship services socially distanced but in the sanctuary at 11:00am. We will continue with the service in the same way we have been worshiping but we will be moving out of the Thompson Family Life Center. The children will begin having activities in the Life Center at the same time, also socially distanced. We will be using a format like Lancaster County Schools.

Children will be dropped off at the front door entrance of the Family Life Center to be assessed.

Children will have their temperature checked as they enter and any child with a temperature above 100.4 or with any cold or flu like symptoms will need to stay home

Children will be socially distanced during activities

Children will be required to wear a mask

Parents must wait until their children are cleared before the parents leave

Youth will also be meeting at the same time but in the fellowship hall.

Youth will wait outside the fellowship hall door until they can be assessed

Youth will have their temperature checked as they enter and any student with a temperature above 100.4 or with any cold or flu like symptoms will need to stay home

Youth will be socially distanced during activities

Youth will be required to wear a mask

We look forward to the opportunity to see everyone joining us for worship and activities on Sunday morning. We hope to have a great and safe time worshiping together..
