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 began working 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.
