Living out God’s Mission
At Zion, we seek to live out our call to Christ in loving service to our community. One way that we do this is by financially supporting those ministries in our area that respond to God’s call to bring love, forgiveness, and life to others.
Many at Zion also volunteer their time and energy at these locations. Some currently help behind desks, while others help as part of these organizations guiding boards.
Financial support can be made to these organizations at any time, directly, or you may leave a donation with the Zion church office (415 West Austin).
Volunteers are always needed and greatly appreciated. Contact the respective organization or Zion’s church office (830-997-2195) to find out how you might be able to donate your time and talents to these life-giving ministries.
