Bike to Zion, or there will also be plenty of parking in the front / south lot for those who wish to drive to Zion. Bring a lawn chair or blanket.
If you plan to ride in the Sunday morning triathlon, volunteer at Sturges Park on Sunday, prefer to avoid the traffic congestion on triathlon Sunday, are looking for a fun family activity, or just want a great chance to bike to Zion for outdoor worship, this event is for you.
The normal worship service schedule of 8:30am, 9:45am, and 10:30am will continue as usual on Sunday, June 3 at Zion. Worshipers are encouraged to be cautious when driving Highway 25 between 9:30-10am on Sunday, the busiest time for triathlon bikers.
In case of inclement weather, all events will be held indoors at Zion. For more information contact the Zion office 763.682.1245 or ZionBuffalo.org.
