Hebrews 6:10 says that God considers helping others as a way to show your love for Him. Volunteering helps your fellow church members and the entire community. Best of all, volunteering brings Glory to God and shines a light on his Holy Name. Call the church office to get more information on any of the ways YOU can be a worker with us in the kingdom of God!
Serving the Congregation
There are a number of ways to help serve the congregation at Zion. You can volunteer to help with our day-to-day operations and maintenance, during Sunday morning worship, working with our youth, serving on a ministry team, or helping out with special events. Fulfilling volunteer roles within the church include being a Sunday morning greeter, usher, or scripture reader, providing special music or flowers, and donating treats for fellowship time after service; providing occasional office help; helping with routine maintenance of our church campus; sending cards or visiting our shut-ins, teaching youth and adult classes; and chaperoning youth events.
Serving the Community
Zion also has many ways to serve the wider community and help those in need. We collect food donations weekly for the Kent Food Bank and manage a Little Free Pantry; donate items to Vine Maple Place as they are needed, cook meals for KentHOPE each month and supply emergency needs, provide preschool and elementary-age books (and volunteers) for the Awesome Readers program at Park Orchard Elementary, send volunteers and supplies to the Corner of Love mission in Costa Rica, and make quilts and assemble health kits for Lutheran World Relief. These organizations all help single parents and families, as well as people experiencing homelessness and suffering from global poverty.
Do you have any other service ideas? Our church members are eager to learn of new opportunities to do the Lord’s work on behalf of our community.
