United Women in Faith
Our local United Women in Faith is committed to learning and serving. Two UWF circles meet monthly for study and fellowship.
They prepare and serve four Sunday noon meals for the Mercy Center in Anderson. They accept donations to Clean Start, an organization that provides showers and laundry services as well as clothing needs to Anderson's homeless. At Christmas our UWF circles spearhead the collection of teddy bears and other snugglies to gift to nursing homes, rescue squads, to children at the Sunshine House, and the American Red Cross.

United Methodist Men
Zion United Methodist Men have the mission of making disciples of men for Jesus Christ. Our group provides support for missions such as ZUMVIM and supporting church sponsored groups such as the Girl Scouts. Our members are actively involved in missions that reach out to our community as well as working to care for our church and our congregation. They support missions outside of the church such as Emmanuel's Hammer and other faith based organizations.
Our Zion United Methodist Men meet for breakfast the third Sunday of each month at 8 am in the CLC (gym). For more information,

Music Ministry at Zion
Zion has at least two ways to use your gifts of music. You may want to join the Zion Bell Choir that plays during worship on special occasions. To learn more or to volunteer to play bells, click here to contact Rachel Houx.
Zion also has a sanctuary choir that meets to rehearse in the sanctuary every Sunday evening at 5 pm. They sing and lead music on most Sunday mornings. Every December, they perform a Christmas cantata on a Sunday evening, highlighting the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. To learn more or to volunteer to sing in the sanctuary choir, click here to contact Dennis Adams, choir director.
Health and Wellness at Zion
The mission of the Health and Wellness Ministry is to help our Zion church family and community care for themselves and one another - to attain, maintain, and/or regain the best possible WHOLE-person health and wellness of body, mind, and spirit - following the example of Christ and guided by the Holy Scriptures.
Based on needs assessments, we educate and engage people in health-related activities that promote healthy lifestyles.
