Mission, Vision and Values

This Church is built on a strong foundation. For almost 3 centuries, Zion Reformed UCC has accepted the cost and joy of discipleship together. In early 2022 we as a church reviewed our mission, vision, and values statements and adopted the following as a result of that session. In short, when all is said, it is our hope and prayer that in every thing we do or say, that words and actions of love are portrayed as we desire to live out Christ’s command to love one another and to love God.

Vision Statement: To Share God’s Inclusive Love, Uniting Us with Our Community
