The first American Methodist Bishop, Frances Asbury appointed Freeborn Garrettson as pastor to five Methodist Societies in Dorchester County in 1779. The societies grew into congregations of Methodist Episcopal Churches; Zion Methodist Episcopal congregation which began in 1780 voted to charter the church in 1787. The first church was on Mill and Race Streets. This church was outgrown and a new church was built on Race Street in 1846. Due to the burning of the Race Street church, a new church on Locust and Mill Streets held the first service in 1912. The Church experienced its 2nd fire in 1950. It took about six years to complete the rebuilding of the church. In the new sanctuary, three stained glass windows on Mill Street represent John Wesley, Bishop Frances Asbury and Freeborn Garrettson.

To honor Freeborn Garrettson, the social hall was named Garrettson Hall. One of the most important factors in the history of Zion has been that of dynamic consecrated leadership by pastors and lay people who have dedicated their time and talents to the work of God's Kingdom, laboring in Zion to make Christ known and loved.
