Service With Us
Everyone has a talent for something!
All of our abilities come from God, and together we can use those abilities to shine and make a difference. We have many opportunities to use our God-given talents to support our church and community. Please call the church office at 630-323-0384 for more information on joining any of our service groups.
Zion's Care Ministry is an organized effort by church members to reach out to those who may be in need of help. Care may come in the form of a meal for someone who is housebound, a ride to a doctor appointment, a gas or food gift card, or a prayer chain.
Our cuddly Comfort Critters Project is for young patients at Hinsdale Hospital. New, 8 to 10-inch stuffed animals can be left in a basket in the gathering area of the church. This is an ongoing project, and donations are always welcome!
The purpose of Zion's Music Ministry is to support the Pastor's sermon, lead the congregation in praising and worshiping God, and to share the gospel of Jesus Christ through song. We offer a blend of traditional and contemporary songs and musical arrangements.
Our choir enthusiastically sings traditional hymns and liturgy accompanied by a Berghaus organ. Made up of congregation members, the choir leads the people of God in joyful worship. If you would like to join the choir, please call the church office.
If you like to sing more upbeat Christian songs, then our music team is for you. Accompanied by piano, guitar and various brass and percussion instruments, the congregation is lifted up by the contemporary music.
The Altar Guild is a ministry of quiet service. They are responsible for the care of the altar, vestments, vessels, and linens. Altar Guild members set the Lord's Table and prepare the sanctuary for worship and clean up afterward. They frequently supervise the decoration of the sanctuary with flowers.
Ladies Guild is a group of women who meet once a month from September through May. They are a service organization who work on different projects for the church and community by way of fundraising and volunteers.
The M.O.L.'s are retired gentlemen (and ladies) who meet every Thursday morning at 8:30 AM. They use their talents to fix, paint, and mend anything and everything around the church and school. During the warm months, they go out to Zion Cemetery and maintain the grounds.
This group of talented ladies knits lap-robes and prayer shawls. Once finished, they are donated to Vitas Healthcare for use by their hospice, palliative or comfort care patients. Pastor Klein may also deliver them when he calls on those in the hospital or housebound.
The Zion Quilters are women from various churches who meet every Tuesday morning in Fellowship Hall at 9:00 AM. Quilting squares, 6 X 6-inches and larger, are pieced together to make 60 X 80-inch quilts that are sent to Lutheran World Relief's "Make Mission Quilts" program (https://lwr.org/getinvolved/quilts), who then sends them worldwide. The quilts are used for bedding, room dividers, baby carriers around a mother's back, rugs, insulation for walls, makeshift ceilings, sacks for carrying things to market, and more. Anyone is welcome to come and join the group!
