Congregational Care

Christians are called by Jesus to love one another.  We can do this through witnessing and meeting the various needs of people in this hurting world.  However, sometimes people right here in our own church family have needs as well, and we can be missional through caring for others.  Here are some of the congregational care opportunities here at Montrose Zion.  Please let us know if we can care for your needs, or help you care for the needs of someone else.

prayer chain

We believe in the power of prayer and the necessity of an ongoing dialogue with our loving God.  Montrose Zion’s prayer chain is a way to lift up our concerns and praises on a regular basis.  We often receive urgent requests, and prayer chain participants spring into action!  Anyone interested in joining this important part of our ministry to both our Montrose Zion family and the greater community may contact the Church Office or Al or Flo Wavle for details. All requests are handled confidentially and with care.
