Zion’s Core Values for Serving are 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: email@example.com.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org.
HOPE 4 YOUTH
Zion provides financial support for Hope 4 Youth, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization located in Anoka, Minnesota that meets the basic needs of young people (ages 23 and under) experiencing homelessness in the north metro suburbs. Website: Hope 4 Youth
Our next Family Promise hosting date is March 12-19, 2023. Watch for announcements in early 2023 about a new Family Promise Day Center staffing site & static guest house.
Opportunities are available at both Anoka Middle School campuses. Some occur in the building and others include prep work for projects that can be completed at home.
Zion partners with area churches driving for Meals on Wheels and we take our turn every 6 weeks. There are 7 routes requiring a total of 35 volunteers each week.
Share your talents! We are in need of ushers, communion server & scripture readers at upcoming worship services Saturday at 5 pm and Sundays at 8, 9 or 11 a.m.
