Serve At ZPC

Many opportunities are available to serve within the walls of ZPC.


Bereavement Team

This team provides support to individuals who have lost a loved one. Team members host memorial services at ZPC by serving as on site greeters, coordinating food and refreshments, and assisting the family and funeral directors as needed. We personally contact the family to offer condolences and prayer and ask what needs the family may have for a snack or meal during the calling and memorial service. We offer support and reassurance of God’s constant love during difficult times.

Interfaith Hospitality Network

Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice Hospitality         Romans 12:13

ZPC has an opportunity to serve homeless children and their caregivers through Family Promise/Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN), a national, faith-based, organization whose mission is to provide temporary, emergency shelter for homeless families.

ZPC hosts families several times a year.

How does it work?
Each week up to fourteen homeless individuals are provided housing at network church facilities. During the day, guests stay at a day center in downtown Indianapolis, where they receive social services. Older children attend school. Between 5 pm and 6 am, local congregations serve as hosts on a weekly rotational basis, providing lodging, meals, and hospitality.

How can I serve?
Volunteers are the heart of the program. They share their time and talents in many ways. We need help in the following areas:
> Setting up guest bedrooms in the church after Sunday services
> Cooking and serving meals
> Playing with the children and fellowshipping with their caregivers
> Staying overnight with the families
> Providing transportation to and from the day center
> Tearing down guest bedrooms before Sunday services
> Doing laundry at your home
> Donating food items and supplies or making a financial donation
> Most importantly, demonstrating Christ’s love

This is a volunteer opportunity for all ages. Please consider serving as an individual or with your family, friends, or Home Group.
