On October 8, 2020, Zion Hill Baptist Church partnered with the Fredericksburg Health Department to offer free COVID-19 testing. They provided 50 tests for parishioners and people in the community.
The health department administered tests for free to patients ages 16 and over for free.
Rev. Dwight Hargrove, the church’s senior pastor, says, “This was a one-time event; however, we are in continuing communication with the health department to be of service for our community.”
The church also gave back to the community in other ways during the
holidays during this pandemic.
“As the pastor of Zion Hill, we are about community service; we provided meals for families for Thanksgiving; blessed families with toys and clothes for Christmas. We partnered with Marine Toys for Tots as one of the locations to bless our community as well. In addition, we had several donors donate brand new clothes for Christmas and any time during the year
provide help to persons in need.”
