Zion United Church of Christ is located in Henderson, KY, a town of 28,000 people in Western Kentucky. Just 8 miles from Evansville, IN with a population of 175,000 Zion is within reach of a much larger community.
Because Zion is the only Open and Affirming, Just Peace Church in the area, there are people who drive long distances to reach our church. There is a group of people from Henderson, but about half of our active members are from Evansville and other nearby towns.
The people of Zion are mostly liberal in our theology and politics and take the Bible seriously, but not literally. Zion’s people are accepting of other cultures and religions. Visitors feel invited with an extravagant welcome as we offer open communion and blessing to all. Zion also warmly welcomes and embraces members with both mental and physical disabilities and strives to make them a part of our worship.
We are the only United Church of Christ in Henderson. We feel that our most important mission is to remain a progressive voice in a conservative area. Although we are not a people with money, we generously give to our community through charity fundraisers and offerings to the wider church.
Our church exceeded our goal during Mission 1 and we have a strong sense of commitment to local food pantries. We offer our fellowship hall and meeting room to various charities and other non-profits at no cost.
Our Sunday services include a Sunday School at 9:30 a.m. and a blended Worship Service at 11:15 a.m. consisting of a mixture of traditional and contemporary music. Zion practices Open Communion where all God's children are invited to participate. Holy Communion is the first Sunday of each month. A pot-luck fellowship meal follows the Communion Service.
You can call us at (270) 826-0605. We are looking forward to hearing from you.
