The year is still (relatively) new and it can be helpful to recall some of the things that happen at ZBC. We are a family because Jesus has made us His brothers and sisters. Sometimes families need to mark some important events down on their calendars. You can consider this email a "friendly reminder" about some of the things that are happening amongst your church family.
A few items to take special note of:
Family Meals are happening every Thursday at 5:00pm. You don't need to bring anything as food and beverages will be provided. You're welcome to stay for as long or as short of a time as you'd like. You may be asked to help clean up after the meal... but isn't that all part of being a family?
Are you willing/able to contribute a Family Meal? Contact Pastor Brad and find out how you can help!
Small Groups/Missional Communities: We believe that it is important to get together througout our weeks in order to pray for one another, learn together and to seek to impact our communities with the good news of Jesus. Are you interested in getting connected with others from Zion? Let Pastor Brad know and he'll help you connect with a group or help get a new group going.
We've kicked off our Family Meal Nights - Join us at the church building Thursdays at 5:00pm for a simple, tasty meal. This isn't a potluck... just plan to join us and enjoy some grub!
Our monthly prayer gatherings are an opportunity to meet around tables to pray for one another, our church, our city and our world. Prayer gatherings are generally on the first Sunday of the month.
We gather to worship Jesus as a church family on Sundays at 10am. Our services include singing, prayer, sharing, hearing from God's word and more. You can join us online or in-person. In-person includes coffee!
Part of our regular worship services is to celebrate communion together, remembering the sacrifice Jesus made on our behalf. We usually celebrate communion on the third Sunday of the month.
Many of us are committed to praying for requests that are shared on our church's prayer chain. Interested in joining a prayer chain? We have phone, email and text chains. Contact Pastor Brad to find out more.
We have a number of caring ministries such as our benevolent fund (to help people in our church and community with some emergency financial help), our sandwich program (which provides lunches to Ksan's Damp Shelter each week) and more. We're praying for more opportunities to show the love of Jesus to the city of Terrace.
We believe that being part of a church family includes faithful financial giving. You can donate by cash, cheque or debit on Sunday mornings or online via our website. Click here to access our online giving page.
We can't do any of our ministries or events without your help. Part of how we honour Jesus is by using the gifts He has given to us to serve others.
We have many ways for you to be involved... up-front, behind the scenes, on Sundays and throughout the week. Contact Pastor Brad to find out how you can be serving at ZBC.
