Ministry Description Zion UCC in Arendtsville PA is an active, medium-sized church with a heart for mission. Located 8 miles north of Gettysburg, it is nestled in the fruit-growing belt of Adams County. Its members represent a broad mix of multi-generation farm families, working professionals, and retired folks. Zion has an active Sunday School for its children and adults with a paid CE Director and additional staff. Mission efforts include several ministries on behalf of veterans, leadership in a weekend “backpack” feeding program, and sending youth and adults on an annual REACH work camp mission. Another key aspect of life at Zion is participation in an ecumenical association of Upper Adams County churches called Upper Adams Christians Together, or UACT. Comprised of 8 churches, UACT seeks to spread the message of Jesus Christ in our community through joint ministries, combined special worship services, and collegial relationships among its pastors. We do more together than we can do alone. An important feature of UACT is joint Confirmation, and currently there are 15 youth that meet weekly in a 2-year program of discipleship. UACT is a key part of Zion’s vitality and essential to its future. If you are not afraid of challenge, desire to work in a beautiful place with an interesting history, and have a heart for small town ministry, Zion is looking for you. And by the way, a sense of humor is essential for working among us! When things go wrong we laugh, and when things go right we praise God. The church is willing, and ready to work!
