Zion United Church of Christ, Metropolis, IL is in search of a pastor for our rural, conservative congregation. We are located at the southernmost part of Illinois on the Ohio River, across from Paducah, Ky. We are not in the category of Open and Affirming as are many other UCC churches and have recently joined the Evangelical Association Of Reformed and Congregational Christian Churches. We believe in the biblical guidelines for sexuality: marriage as the union on one man and one woman, fidelity and holiness in marriage.
We hold fast to the belief that Jesus Christ is the head of His body, the Church and of the local church. We believe the Holy Spirit is alive and well at Zion and try to display the love of Christ in our community. As we seek a new pastor, we are looking for a pastor who is truly called and passionate about serving God and his children. We would love to have a pastor who will reach out to the community and help bring young families, while at the same time serving the needs of our older core members.
If you, or someone you know, is interested in our church, please contact Connie Gentry at 618-201-7647 or Laura Sielbeck at 618-638-2456
