NOTE: We are making adjustments to how we worship, serve, and learn.
Food Pantry will be held Tuesday, 4/7, from 4:30 to 6:30. We are taking coronavirus precautions to keep everyone safe. Food is available for anyone living, working, or worshiping in the Anthony Wayne school district. If you have a food emergency, contact us.
We are collecting single-serve portions of non-perishable fruits and “main dishes” (mac-n- cheese, pasta, etc.) to include in weekend food its for AW students at risk for hunger. (Please, no perishable items. We have plenty of chips, cookies, etc.) Please place donations in the storage container near the door in our parking lot, and then contact us to let us know it’s there (so we can make sure it goes to students and not to critters!).
Sunday worship services will be available online. Please click on the “Online Worship” link. The service will available for one week. Sermons are also available in written and video forms on the “Sermons” page.
Palm Sunday, 4/5: Online Worship Service
Holy (Maundy) Thursday, 4/9: Online Meditation
Good Friday, 4/10: Online “Virtual Tennebrae” service. This “service of shadows” recalls Christ’s
Passion through music and scripture.
Easter, 4/12: Join us for an experimental Easter Communion service via teleconference in our
parking lot. Arrive in our parking lot no later than 10:15. Bring your fully-charged cell phone
(it doesn’t have to be a smart phone), your car charger if you want it, and enough bread and
juice for everyone in your car (for Communion). You will be given a number to call and
meeting ID to enter. Turn on your speakerphone and we will worship together from the
safety of our cars. Decorate your car to add a festive touch to our service!
Please continue to check our web site or office phone, or “like” our Facebook page, for updates as we grow into this new way of worshiping. The congregation at Zion is keeping all in prayer as we move through this difficult time together.
Welcome to Zion UMC, in the heart of Whitehouse! Not only are we located in the geographic heart of the community, we also seek to live out the values that form the “heart” of a healthy, vibrant community—values that affirm the dignity and sacred worth of all people and God’s creation. And, we address the needs that are at the heart of life in Whitehouse—the needs of the hungry, the needs of children and their families, and the need that all people have for a place where they can encounter God through faith in Jesus.
Zion UMC is a group of people redeemed by Jesus’ death and resurrection, all because of his love for us. None of us comes to the church or stays here because we are “good enough.” We come because we want to turn from our sinful, troublesome ways, accept the saving grace Jesus offers us, learn how to follow his life-giving path in worship and service, and experience the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
We invite you to join us at Zion UMC, in the heart of Whitehouse!
We are one street west of Providence St. in Whitehouse, 1 block north of the south fork of the Wabash Cannonball Trail, a block behind the Buzz Restaurant and within sight and just to the south of both the First Federal of Delta Bank and Whitehouse Primary School. Map
