Social accountability

  Social accountability Not only do we believe in preaching the Word of God for salvation and restoration of  relationship with God for eternal life, but we in Sion Christian Church also believe, that we have a call to be socially responsible and involved. From the very start Sion Christian Church has been initiating a number of projects in the social sphere with the conviction that we are fulfilling the words of Lord Jesus Himslef in the gospel of Matthew 25:34-36 where He says “I was hungry and you fed me, I was thirsty and you gave me a drink, I was homeless and you gave me a room,  I was shivering and you gave me clothes, I was sick and you stopped to visit, I was in prison and you came to me.” Social projects  Loaves and fish Project  –  we are reaching lives by giving faith and hope, along with providing medicine, clothes, shoes, food vouchers for elderly people and underprivileged families – widowers and widows, lonesome people, homeless and beggars, sick people in bed, young people who drop out of school, people who leave places that serve for punishment, etc. In His time Jesus met with the people and sat on the grass to teach them, he fed them with a little boys lunch multiplying the fish and the loaves of bread. Today we meet in a restaurant, sit around the tables to study the Bible and  provide a nice meal.
