We contribute food items and donate time to sort goods and assist in the Christmas toy and clothing collection effort. Some members work weekly at the center to serve those in need.
Each week the Men's Bible Study Group contributes money toward ELCA Good Gifts, which provides animals and funds for community projects in poor areas around the world.
Every month during the school year Groveland Elementary sends the name of the family who needs assistance with paper products and personal care items. A list of items is posted in the Gathering Hall so that all can contribute.
Our knitters and crocheters lovingly create prayer shawls and lap blankets for members and friends who are hospitalized or in nursing homes. Each gift comes with a prayer to let the recipient know that they are loved and kept in our prayers. They also create Prayer Squares that church members can distribute to someone who is ill, grieving, having financial issues, depressed, having relationship problems, and so on.
We collect soft-cover books of a spiritual nature for the Good News Jail & Prison Ministry in Tavares FL. Several women have learned to read using books donated by Zion. Congregational donations purchase Bibles for incarcerated women.
We are supporting the Church Women's United work with CAC by making bags and collecting small sized toiletry items to fill them. CAC provides a child-friendly, community-based facility where a child victim can be safely interviewed, provided with crisis counseling, receive medical exams and long-term specialized therapy, when needed.
