Below is a video of music and readings for the Seventh Sunday of this Easter season, May 24, also knows as Ascension Sunday. The video is compiled by our Minister of Music Neal Biggers, with the help of musicians from Zion and neighboring St. Lucas UCC.
Link to St. Lucas UCC Services Page where you can find a new prayer/announcement video and message video by the Rev. Lynn Martin each Sunday morning, which he has offered to share with our Zion community. His announcement video contains a meaningful Memorial Day tribute this week.

Zion has been a center of spiritual growth and healing in downtown Evansville, Indiana for more than 170 years ago. Early immigrants from Germany built this church and services were in German for many years.
Under normal circumstances, the Zion UCC congregation has a traditional worship service at 10:30am on Sunday mornings, and the Zion Center for Spiritual Development and Healing has provided an array of activities as you can see under the “Spirituality and Healing” tab above.
We are currently in a period of transition as we look for a new pastor and seek to discern the leading of the Spirit for the future of Zion Church and Center. For now, you can stay in touch with us through a weekly video and updates on this page, and by checking out our Facebook page.
Peace be with you!
