We have resumed our normal worship schedule. Nursery and children/youth programs are not yet available due to the complexity of sanitizing after young children and trying to maintain social distancing. 


Thanksgiving Evening Service of Music and Praise

Sunday November 22, 2020 @ 6:30PM

Once again, we will be gathering in the sanctuary for an evening of praise, music, and thanksgiving on Sunday, November 22nd at 6:30 PM. Zion’s Praise Team will lead us in group singing. The service will focus on being thankful for what we DO have and not what we DON’T have! There’s sure to be some laughing as we once again see Zion’s dynamic duo in action. There may even be some light moments from surprise performers! Of course, we will observe social distancing and wear masks.

Following the service please join us in the fellowship hall for light desserts and beverages. We hope you will mark this date on your calendar and invite friends and family to come along. We are truly blessed!


Blood Drive

Red Lion Zion UMC will host a blood drive for the Central PA Blood Bank December 22nd, 2020 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Your donation is very needed – there is currently a large shortage blood supplies in Central PA due to canceled blood drives because of the pandemic. Supplies are down 40 %.   

To better accommodate donors and ensure safety, the drive will be held inside the church Fellowship Hall (versus held on a bus) in order to implement social distancing.  All donors will have their temperature taken upon arrival and must wear masks.  All staff will have their temperature taken upon arrival for the start of their shift and will being wearing masks. Beds, screening areas, and equipment are being sanitized between each donor.

All donors are strongly urged to make an appointment. Appointments will ensure that we are not exceeding the recommended number of people that are gathered at one time. Walk-ins will be accepted only as able and may experience a wait. Donors may call 1-800-771-0059 to make an appointment or visit 

Unfortunately, CPBB is not able to accommodate children at mobile drives at this time.  This is done to adhere to social distancing and gathering recommendations.

We hope you will come out and support CPBB!

We have recently partnered with Living Word Community Church to help support Servants on a regular basis and will be participating in a workday on the 2nd Saturday of every month. This is an opportunity to help people in your community. It is not necessary to be skilled in construction...all you need is a willing spirit and servant's heart.
