Support Groups

Zion is pleased to host a number of outside support groups.

Alcoholics Anonymous

AA has been a wellspring of healing and recovery for generations, and we give thanks to God for it. We are proud and honored to host a brand new AA meeting offering in Hollidaysburg on Saturday mornings from 8:30-9:30 a.m. AA will hold this closed meeting (limited to persons with a desire to stop drinking) every week in our first-floor Chapel. 

Bridge of Hope

Bridge of Hope started in 1987 as a vision of how churches could respond to homelessness in their communities. Zion is one of 23 locations in 14 states implementing this unique ministry model: a three-way partnership among families facing homelessness, church-based Neighboring Volunteers trained to provide practical support and encouragement, and professional staff. Rather than offering short-term solutions, the Bridge of Hope Neighborhood of Support is designed to last 18 to 24 months to give families the time and opportunities necessary for long-term change.

Stephen Ministry

Founded in 1975, Stephen Ministries produces training and resources on topics such as caring ministry, assertive relating, spiritual gifts discovery, grief support, spiritual growth, and more. Zion is one of 13,000 congregations providing this ministry. Our team of congregation members called Stephen Ministers—provide high-quality, one-to-one, Christ-centered care to people in the congregation and the community experiencing life difficulties.
