Welcome to Zion UMC

We are so glad that you have viewed our website and we hope that you will come to visit us in person. We are a United Methodist Church that lives the philosophy of open hearts, open minds, and open doors. We offer relevant preaching with messages from the Bible that apply to our everyday lives and we try to live that message with community outreach and a welcoming attitude.


Zion UMC invites you to join us for our Saturday Sunday School!

Beginning Saturday, Oct. 30, 2021 at 9:45 am. in the Zion UMC fellowship hall.

For the next 6 weeks we are offering the study of Galatians, "Breakthrough: Finding Freedom in Christ".

In this study, author Barb Roose shows us that even the believers in the early church struggled to let go of rule-keeping and performance in order to embrace God's free gift of grace. In his letter to the Galatians, Paul pours out his heart and faith to set them straight, addressing so many of the same questions and problems we still face today, such as:

* Who has led you to believe you have to follow rules to be right with God?
* Why do you think you have to try to be perfect for God?
* How do we stay free in Christ?

If you have ever struggled with these questions or felt tapped by rules or religion, this study will provide a path to discover your freedom in Christ.

Though this study we will learn to:

* Stop trying to measure up
* Distinguish between lies and truths
* Embrace God's promise of freedom

This study includes a workbook (yes, homework) which you can find on Amazon or Christianbooks.com.

Please contact Christine Braxton at cabraxton57@gmail.com for further information or to sign up.
