What style of service and kind of music should I expect?
The worship service contains elements of worship such as Confession and
Absolution, Scripture readings, and the Creed. Music includes hymns and
songs led by organ, piano, guitars, drums, keyboard, and other instruments

service in printed bulletins and the hymnal.
How do I become a Disciple of Jesus Christ in a relationship with the
congregation of Zion?
God made man not to live in isolation, but to be in community and share
the joys of walking together with other believers.
Most important of all is to attend worship to experience the word of God. Together, with all the congregation seek the mercy and grace that is only in Jesus Christ, and be assured of Forgiveness, Faith and Life eternal.
A person wanting to become a communing Disciple of Jesus Christ can do so through:
Affirmation of Faith: Where a person confesses his/her belief in
accordance with the fellow Disciples here at Zion.
Adult Instruction: By the study of God’s Holy Word as taught in
the confessions of this Christian Congregation.
Confirmation Classes: Through a Christian schooling for children starting
in the 6th grade and finishing in the 8th grade once a week as they are taught
the Christian Faith.
