Power & Love:

An occasional Education & Conversation Series on God’s Justice 

Power & Love: A Zion Education & Conversation Series on God’s Justice

We welcome all to this occasional study series on issues of life and God’s justice, framed in the boundaries of power and love. We will push beyond the usual political rhetoric and instead focus on the real-life consequences of our social and theological thoughts and actions. Power and Love will be an online conversational series open to all, with a special emphasis on the interests of young adults in our congregation and community. The conversations themselves will be confidential to those participating. However, the main educational points will be recorded by Pastor Matthew and published on the church website for those who are not able to attend.

 

Our next gathering of Power & Love: Tuesday, November 30, 6:30 p.m.
Theme: Gender - Come and explore issues of sex and gender and how we talk about it in church and community.

Across the 13 Metroparks properties, you can walk, bike or hike a variety of trails, paddle our rivers or just sit back and enjoy the nature around you as spring returns to Southeast Michigan. 

Senior 

Resource Libary

 

Due to changes in mobility and cognition over time (and in the midst of a global pandemic), it's only natural that our needs change as well. Not every senior has family nearby to lean on, which is where the church community can step up and support seniors in a big way.

 

Here are some resources for helping seniors with needs related to aging in place, daily living and combating social isolation.

Church Boosts Health and Wellness in Seniors

By Jason Lewis

Aging brings many changes in life. Getting older may mean that your activity slows down a bit, and the years can have a way of putting distance between you and old friends, which results in less social interaction. For seniors, the risk of isolation is high. Loneliness is not a path to good health, so it's essential for seniors to be engaged.  One way to increase social engagement and battle loneliness is to become involved in a church, and such spiritual connectedness may benefit health as well.

Alzheimer Support

Alzheimer Support is a free service that helps families who have loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.

Memory Care Facilities

Memory Care Facilities is a free service that helps families who have loved ones with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Through our free search tool and nationwide database of memory care facilities, families who are in need of memory care for their loved ones are able to find licensed care homes and communities in their location.

Senior Guidance
