Welcome to Mt. Zion United Methodist Church at Peach Bottom! We’re a small, friendly, family-friendly church in southern Lancaster County, PA, in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country. Click here for directions. We share a mission with all United Methodist churches, making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
We worship together on Sunday mornings at 11:00, and celebrate Holy Communion on the first Sunday of each month. Stop by for fellowship time at 10:30 Sunday morning.
It Ain’t Over Until It’s Over
Or, the Continuing Saga…
With apologies to the late great Yogi Berra, Pastor Roger responds with words of reassurance to the most recent proposals to address the controversy within the United Methodist Church. Read his letter here. And keep our United Methodist Church in prayer, as we seek to find ways to grow through very divisive issues.

Rawlinsville Camp Meeting is over for 2019. Mt. Zion is one of the founding members churches, and we’ll be back in 2020 which isn’t all that far away!
Earthquakes in Puerto Rico, devastating fires in Australia. It seems like disasters are happening right and left. What can we do? See Pastor Roger’s blog, Disasters Happen, for some ways you can help people in need, both near and far, by donating to UMCOR.
You’ll find that we’re engaged in ministry, too, as a member of the SOULanco Mission Connection group of United Methodist congregations in southern Lancaster County. We’re proud to be part of Rawlinsville Camp Meeting as one of the founding churches. We support the Solanco Food Bank (Solanco Neighborhood Ministries), LUMINA, the new “Bare Essentials” clothing ministry, and the IMPACT! Missions housing ministry.
In 2020 Mt. Zion UMC continues to partner with IMPACT! Missions, a faith-based housing ministry dedicated to helping everyone have a home that’s warm, safe and dry. We’re doing a volunteer workday with IMPACT! Missions on the first Saturday of each month, from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Contact Pastor Roger to sign up.
