Call Process 2020

Search for a New Pastor

Zion leadership has been working hard and continuously behind the scenes to the our Call Process.  Conversations with Bishop Lecakes, Pastor Chip Froehlich, Pastor Mark Mueller and other in the Atlantic District have informed this plan that is robust, intentional, and yet has a fast turn-around.  It's going to be a very busy spring at Zion!  

Interim Pastor

We are very happy to let you know that Pastor Charles (Chip) Froehlich will be serving as Zion's Interim Pastor for six-months beginning on January 31.  His time with us may be extended if needed.  He will assist us in the Call Process, worship, visitation, Sunday School and Formation (First Communion and Confirmation Classes).  He also brings extensive experience in fiance, outreach, senior ministry and youth.
