Zion's history has been shaped by identifying and responding to real needs in our community. We are committed not only to social ministry to those in need, but also to outreach and social justice so that God's voice can be heard through us.

Whether it's feeding the hungry, caring for the sick, or visiting those in prison, our members are committed to meeting real, tangible needs in our neighborhood and beyond.
We are proud to be a part of the city of Deerfield Beach. In addition to on campus events like our annual Blessing of the Animals, we love to participate in city events and festivals.
Many hands make light work. Since the Church is the people, we rely on the diversity of our talent and the gift of our time to keep the ministries at Zion running smoothly.
We believe God has given us a voice to speak against injustice and inequality in our society and community. Our connections with partner churches and organizations magnify our positive impact.

The goal of Deerfield Beach Community Cares is the creation of a resident-led approach designed to solve the community's most complex health and quality of life issues, neighborhood by neighborhood. "Nothing about us without us."
For the third year in a row, Zion & Evergreen Academy have donated food and supplies to help homeless individuals and families through the ministry of HOPE South Florida. This year, we donated enough to fill 200 individual bags of non-perishable food and water that were distributed at a shared meal. We also were able to give a huge bag of women's socks (men's socks were distributed in the bags), and a box of towels and washcloths for the mobile shower ministry. Thank you to all of the church and preschool families whose donations made this year's project a success.
In mid-July, we had the opportunity to deliver 15 boxes of food, personal supplies, and arts & crafts supplies to replenish the pantry at the Center for Active Aging in Deerfield Beach. Thank you to our Zion and Evergreen Academy family for making this happen!
