Every Sunday afternoon at 1:15 pm a volunteer from Zion shows the morning taped worship service at Alden Terrace Residence. Those residents who wish to view the service meet in the Library. The volunteer puts the tape in the VCR, passes our the Bulletins which include the music selections. Sometimes the volunteer will need to escort the residents to and from the viewing. If you would like to volunteer for this service, please contact Jean Grandt.
Every Summer from Memorial Day through Labor Day Sunday the youth group at Zion travel out to Fish Lake Beach Campground in Volo to help spread God’s word to others. The youth take an active part in setting up a church service at the campground every Sunday morning which begins at 10:30 am. They do it all including passing out worship service booklets and music, giving the three readings from the Bible, and leading the services.
A keyboardist supplies the accompaniment and the sermonette is given by a different adult member of the church each week. It is a great experience to be able to reach out to some that don’t have a church to call there own and to those who spend their summers out there regularly as well as those who are out of town and in ours for the weekend.
There is also Sunday School for the kids that takes place before the church service. Sunday School starts at 9:45 am and then leads right into church. The service is held under a pavilion so it doesn’t matter, rain or shine, the service goes on outside at Fish Lake.
The campground is located off Route 12 just one block north of Route 120. Zion has been an active presence at Fish Lake for over 15 years.
Pastor Loest and other volunteers meet with residents of the McHenry Villa on the 3rd Sunday evening at 6:00 pm. The gathering place is in the activity room. Pastor reads scripture and has a short homily. Stories and poems are shared along with prayer requests. Hymns are sung with or without accompaniment. Light refreshments are served. Young and/or old are very welcome to join the fellowship.
Our Sunday Divine Services are broadcasted on McHenry local channel 17 on Thursdays at 7:30 pm. Services are recorded and edited by church members along with our youth. Check it out!
For we are God's workmanship created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Receive, celebrate and share the good news of Jesus Christ.
