SERVING CONGREGATIONALLY

 

Distribution of the Sacrament to the Sick and Homebound

Each of our homebound members receive the Sacrament of Holy Communion which is brought to them by members of the congregation. The bread and wine which is consecrated during worship is received by those involved in this ministry and taken into the residence of our sick and homebound. This is an extension of our worship and continues to include our sick and homebound as vital members of this parish. 

 

Prayer Chain

More than forty members of the church participate in this ministry which provides prayer for those who request it due to various situations in their lives. Those who pray receive the request either by email or by phone every Sunday evening. Often times other requests are made throughout the week. 

 

Stephen Ministry

We are pleased that Harrold Zion is a Stephen Ministry congregation.

What is Stephen Ministry? Stephen Ministry is the one-to-one lay caring ministry that takes place in congregations that use the Stephen Ministry Series. Stephen Ministry congregations equip and empower lay caregivers—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting.  The Stephen Ministers also assist the pastor with hospital visitations and provide care for members who are going through their final steps of life.

At Harrold Zion, there are many areas to serve in worship, Christian Education, youth, committees, or any of the tasks that require volunteers.  If you would like to serve in any way or have questions on how you may serve, please contact Pastor John at 724-837-7327.
