Sunday Church Services during COVID 19

Zion Open Air Services 

We are excited to announce that we will begin our Suday services outdoors at the new Barnegat Light Pavilion located at the north corner of Bayview Avenue on July 12th. We are thankful to the Town of Barnegat Light for the use of this beautiful new structure; we think it's the perfect place for us to come together for our first outdoor services since last summer.  Let's gather safely together to praise our Lord for this day and every day!

The services will begin at 9am each Sunday.  We will be following CDC and NJ guidelines to wear a mask and follow social distancing.  Bring your own folding chairs or lawn chairs and arrive early so you can get set up inside the pavilion in time.  Greeters will be there with bulletins and hand sanitizer for you.  If you plan to bring an offering (not necessary!), for safety purposes we will not pass the offering plate but an offering box will be available or you may choose to go online on this website and clidk Give on the left.  We hope to see you there.   (Photo by Bob Birdsall)
