Serving the poor and the needy has been a part of Zion Church’s mission since it’s very beginning. Indeed, service to others is at the very heart of our faith. Baltimore City is the focus of our mission, most particularly our own neighborhood here in the Gay St. / Lexington area.
The Door Ministry
This is a year-round program; a small group purchases food and packs brown bag lunches for the hungry and those in need. These bags are then given out by the Church each day from noon until 2 and are available to anyone.
The Harvest Table
In late fall, we intensify our efforts. A table is set up in the Church where canned and prepackaged foods is left for donation. In early December these boxes of food are then given to various shelters and organizations around the City.
Angel Tree/International Lutheran Seafarer’s Mission
Each year at Christmastime, a small group assembles boxed presents to be given to sailors who are staying in the Port of Baltimore on ships, away from their homes and families. This work is funded by the Angel Tree Project.
These are just a few ways that Social Ministry functions at Zion. If you would like to help in some way or would like further information please contact the Church office.
