  • Brooklawn Child & Family Services provides comprehensive care, treatment and education, restoring hope to emotionally troubled children and families.
  • Christian Motorcycle Association - The basic purpose of a CMA Chapter is to support the National CMA effort of sharing and showing the love of Jesus Christ to motorcyclists, and supporting the overall ministry of CMA. Click here for photos from our recent fellowship with this fine group.
  • The Good Samaritan Home is a not-for-profit health care ministry affiliated with the United Church of Christ. Their mission is to provide a caring community for the frail and elderly through an atmosphere of Christian love and concern.

  • First Response Trailer - Recently a trailer was purchased to allow Zion to more effectively help those who have been affected by disaster. Eventually, we hope this can be a First Response Trailer. This would allow Zion volunteers to go into a disaster area immediately and help in clearing trees and limbs and assist families to secure their homes and to provide a safe environment. We will use the trailer in annually scheduled mission trips as well.
  • Helping Hand Fund - Emergency financial help is provided within and outside Zion UCC.
