Remote Worship and Resources for Zion Lutheran Church, Glen Rock, PAIn an abundance of caution and an effort to comply with the guidelines issued to manage social separation due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are offering resources as they become available so that you may worship remotely and continue to stay connected with your congregation and community.  Some of these resources might be printed resources that you may download for your use.  Others will be online worship, Bible study, or fellowship  opportunities in which you can choose to participate. We will be adding resources as they become available, and we hope you'll check back regularly to see what is new.

       Note:  If you wish to participate in an online ZOOM session...

  • If you have an internet connection, click on the link provided below. 
    You should do this prior to designated start time, as there is a download that needs to happen before you can enter the meeting ID number. 
  • If you do NOT have internet connection, use a phone number provided to join.
    If the number is not shown as toll free and is outside of your regular calling plan, a charge will appear on your phone bill for the call.

 Announcements are listed in Newest-to-Oldest order. Please scroll to see dates.
Those recorded items listed under dates that have passed should still be available per the link provided.
