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.
Because of the COVID challenge, we have moved to a temporary model of hotel stays with the help of funds both from Family Promise In Anoka County and Anoka County. Four times a year, Zion provides one meal a week plus hospitality baskets. If you would like more information on how you can help, please contact Dulcie Campana at: email@example.com.
