Zion offers its members the opportunity to give to the church through an electronic giving program called Simply Giving.   Simply Giving enables members to make their donations to the church on a scheduled basis through automatic deductions and electronic transfers from either a checking or savings account.  Electronic giving makes contributing to the church’s missions and ministry simple and convenient for the donor and it helps the church manage its finances more reliably.  For more information about Simply Giving click here.


Thrivent members can recommend where some of Thrivent Financial's charitable outreach funds go. Since 2010, eligible members have used this program to direct more than $225 million to churches and nonprofits nationwide. Members become eligible for Thrivent Choice based on insurance premiums, contract values and Thrivent volunteer leadership. Eligible members are designated Choice Dollars that they can direct to enrolled charities.
