Missions




"As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen."   1 Peter 4:10-11 ESV

WORLD HUNGER COLLECTION— We were able to collect $72 that will go to the UM Conference to fight world hunger. Thank you to all who contributed. 

SOUPER BOWL OF CARING — Our annual Soup for Souls Community Dinner is returning! The soup dinner will be held on Feb 11th from 4:30—6:30 p.m. During the event, a free-will food drive will take place. Bring a canned good donation if you can, but one is not required for the meal. Additionally, as part of the “Souper Bowl of Caring,” a nationwide effort to fight hunger and  poverty around the time of the Super Bowl football game, we will be collecting monetary donations on Feb 12th after both services. All monies collected will be donated to a local food pantry. 

COMMUNITY REACH—we are collecting non-perishable foods for their general collection. Paper product and personal care items are also needed. Please place in the baskets around Zion. 

REACHING OUT COMMUNITY MEAL—Community meals will not be held until March 13th.  There will be a meeting in March before that time.  Gail Clark continues to be the point of contact for this program.  Many thanks to those that help! 

UNITING 2 SERVE—The Brobsts recently held a wrestling fundraiser.  They are 900 dollars a month short on their budget because of a holdup in grant money and need funds, fundraising ideas, and prayers in order to keep the mission going.  

CONNECTION UBANTU - Ubantu means humanity to others in African.  Want to give people in Africa a great opportunity and also keep our landfills happy? Connection Ubuntu (www.ConnectionUbuntu.org) is a local non-profit located in Dallastown.  They’ll take your old laptop/desktop/ smartphone/keyboard/mouse, etc. as long it is working (and uses Window 7 OS OR Apple 2013 or newer OS) and bless someone in Africa with the opportunity to be digitally  connected. They wipe all data, if needed, and add a new Operating System (OS), test the equipment and clean it. Your donation is tax deductible!

SERVANTS — Servants’ mission is to empower churches and individuals to share God’s love through acts of service. They have served under-resourced individuals and families in their local communities, across the USA, and in seven countries around the world including Guatemala, India and Haiti for more than 20 years. 

Servants continues to be a constant blessing to the community, the country and worldwide as they continue their programs and serve and spread the love of Christ.  Thank you to those of Zion who help and those that donate.  There is always a need for volunteers for their Healthy Homes initiative. The Healthy Homes initiative provides home repair and maintenance services for low-income older adult, single parent and disabled homeowners in South Central PA. Another way to volunteer is through their Volunteer CafĂ©, which consists of a “menu” of various projects (small, medium, and large) around their ministry center in Red Lion. It is open every Wednesday and Friday from 9am to 3pm and on the first Saturday of every month from 9am to 2pm. And of course, there is coffee!
