Sunday Service will be in the Sanctuary
Plan to join us this Sunday for a Single Service at 9:30am inside the Sanctuary. Please note that Zion will be holding a Congregational Meeting immediately following the 9:30am service for the purpose of placing a Divine Call for a Senior Pastor. This meeting will not be recorded for Live Facebook streaming.

Combining some of the traditional liturgy with praise songs and hymns; we encourage you to invite your family and friends, and while wearing your mask, join your brothers and sisters in Christ for a responsible social distance worship experience!
We have incorporated communion on the 1st & 3rd Sunday of the month at our in person service. Zion also remains available to provide “touchless” communion to you at your home. Simply request a kit through the church office or click here to sign up for an @Home Communion Kit.

Although we encourage you to join us in the Sanctuary, if you are unable to join us in person, we encourage you to join the FaceBook Live streaming of the service at 9:30 AM. Below please find a copy of the service bulletin with the words to the liturgy, scriptures, songs and prayers so that you can join us in lifting your hearts and voices in worship.

We are continuing to take reservations (RSVP) for the time being so that we can ensure the health and safety of all who are attending. Let us know you're coming by registering yourself and your family. Please note, that an RSVP is required by all people including children.

Zion is Offering Communion @ Home Kits
Have You Missed Communion?
Zion Elders want to extend the opportunity to share in Holy Communion during social distancing.

We are hoping to do all we can by offering this resource for those that are unable to make it to church or just not ready to return to the church for physical worship and communion. We want you to remain safe and secure in every decision you make. 

In doing so, we would like to offer you with the opportunity for a home delivery kit of the Communion Elements, followed up by a call from a Zion Elder who will administer communion with you over the phone.
Once you're request form has been submitted you will receive a confirmation email from Google Forms. Zion will then contact you to set up a time to drive over and deliver the kit to your home.

Looking For Gently Used Trikes or Little Tykes Coupe

Praise God, our PreK class is full!
So having 12 children does pose a problem since we only have 9 Little Tykes cars and 9 tricycles. Practicing social distancing, requires each child to have their own. Until we receive more, the cars will be moved back to the Bike Yard to ensure no child is left out. If you or anyone you know has a Little Tykes Coupe or a gently used tricycle they are no longer using and wish to donate to us, please let me know! I am even willing to pick them up. 
Email Mrs. Knapp or call 714-535-3600 ext. 300

Zion Families,

We would like to thank all the families who participated in the Scrip program this last year. You benefited Zion as a whole and received a tuition rebate as well (when you signed up for the rebate program.) We invite all families to purchase Scrip and enjoy the benefits.

Scrip means “substitute money”. When you purchase Scrip, you are purchasing negotiable gift certificates and prepaid cards that are used just like cash. 

To get started use the attached Scrip order form and start ordering Scrip today and accumulate your rebate. Just drop your order with payment attached in any tuition box located in the School office, SAC lobby, ECEC office or Church office. Make checks payable to “Zion Scrip” and mark rebate designation. If no designation is marked, then it will be applied to Zion's general fund. You may also purchase Scrip on Sunday mornings between church services. We are also participating in the Scrip Now program. Families will be able to purchase scrip online. Attached is the flyer that explains this program, how it works, and Zion's enrollment code. Shop-with Scrip Now offers you to use a credit card to purchase your scrip.

Create the Scrip habit by purchasing Scrip weekly for gas and groceries. One of the great things about Scrip is that it does not cost you one penny more than you normally spend on regular purchases! Remember the Scrip program when making big purchases, like flooring, paint, furniture, appliances and home repairs. You can also have your family, friends and co-workers purchase Scrip.  Use Scrip for birthday, anniversary and Christmas gifts. Join the Scrip program today!

Thank you for your support!!
