ShelterZion’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 shelter means we serve those who are homeless and working for permanent shelter.
Zion is passionately committed to the plight of the homeless through a variety of community outreach programs.
Habitat for Humanity
Every summer a team of volunteers led by Bill Norquist and Sylvan Flaten set off for a site in the Twin Cities to build a house for a family in need. If you want to volunteer for this great ministry please contact Bill Norquist at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Four times a year, Zion hosts up to four families for a week overnight. If you would like to volunteer to make dinner, set-up, or be a night host please contact Dulcie Campana at: email@example.com
