Vulnerable Youth & AdultsZion’s Core Values for Serving: Food, Shelter, Care for the Vulnerable, and Local & Global Missions
Zion’s Core Values for Serving guide who we are and how God is calling us to respond.
The core value for the vulnerable means we serve those who are in need.
Global Heath Ministries
A group of 8-15 Zion volunteers meet twice each month at the Global Health Ministries Fridley warehouse to process used medical supplies and package them to be sent to Lutheran hospitals and clinics around the world.
Anoka Hennepin School Partnerships
Zion provides backpacks, school supplies, clothing requests and hallway monitoring for two area schools. On Tuesday and Thursday afternoons during the school year, Zion provides space for Y’s Start, an after-school program directed by the YMCA and supported by both Anoka Middle School and Zion Lutheran Church.
Each December Zion’s Caring Tree displays gift tags indicating specific needs of area organizations. Tags are chosen, items are purchased and then brought back to the Caring Tree for distribution. Last year Zion Caring Trees supported the following organizations: Stepping Stone Emergency Housing, Bridgeview Drop-In Center, Anoka Metro Regional Treatment Center and Alexandra House.
A quilting group meets one day a month at Zion to assemble and tie quilts that are blessed at a worship service each November before being sent off to ACBC (Anoka County Brotherhood Council), Bundles of Love, Lutheran Social Services, Lutheran World Relief, Marie Sandvik Center, Anoka Metro Treatment Center, Union Gospel Mission and St. Cloud VA.
