About this Ministry

At Zion, we appreciate all types of music, so we try to mix contemporary offerings with those grand old hymns that we all love so much. Special music in our service is often presented by our talented Zion Handbell Choir or our "Voices of Zion" vocal choir.

Zion Handbell Choir

Usually rehearsing after church on Sundays, the handbell choir rings a 5-octave set of Schulmerich Handbells and 3 octaves of Malmark Choir Chimes.   The ensembles tackles a wide variety of musical types, just to keep everyone on their toes!  The ensemble participates in the annual Delaware Handbell Festival each November, where many choirs gather on the stage at Gray Chapel on the Ohio Wesleyan campus.  The festival is a grand event and a wonderful way to head into the holiday season.

Voices of Zion

This vocal ensemble is known to be small but mighty!   The group rehearses each Wednesday night or an hour and offers an anthem approximately three Sundays each month.   A friendly and welcoming group, they prepare both classic and contemporary pieces to add a special touch to the Sunday services.

Recent Message

Pastor Beth Staten

This is our final week in the letter from Paul to the church at Philippi. Last week we talked about how God invites us to be motivated by love and not by fear. We are called to follow the example of Jesus who modeled God's righteousness, extending love to all. As we wrap up this letter, we will consider what our life together looks like when put together all these themes of joy, gratitude, unity, humble love, and God's righteousness.

Scripture

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
