Blue Paraments - Season of the Church

Welcome to Zion Lutheran Church

We hope you will join us at our next gathering of Worship or Fellowship.  We at Zion are a body of believers confessing the Triune God according to the Truths set forth in the Holy Bible.

One of the primary goals of Zion is to share the love of Christ with our community.

Here are a few ways we’d like to invite you to join us:

 

Advent and Christmas Worship

 

Advent Family Devotion Series

Families and individuals at Zion are encouraged to participate in a daily devotional series that follows the prophecies about Jesus in scripture.  With each day’s Bible reading, there is a template for an ornament that can be hung on a tree… visually filling our branches with beautiful promises of God as we near the celebration of Christ’s birth at Christmas.

Pick up a booklet and set of templates the next time you stop by church!

Sunday Morning Bible Classes

We are currently offering three different choices during the 9:15-10:15 Bible Study hour at Zion.  Come a few minutes early for the coffee, juice, and snacks, then try out one of the following:

  • Family Bible Class – An inter-generational class especially designed for children and their parents, led by Dir. of Family and Youth Ministry, Mr. Brian Horning.  They are doing a chronological study through the Old Testament. If you’re wondering what that would look like, think; “Classic Sunday School Topics” but with LOTS of adult helpers, and opportunity for deep questions to be discussed while we all work on crafts and coloring together.
  • Youth Bible Class – All high school youth (Grades 8-12) are encouraged to come together in the Youth Room for a topical Bible Study and discussion, led by a couple of fun ladies, Angie Horning and Katie Krauss.
  • The Psalms – A class led by Pastor Peters, taking a deeper look at some of our favorite Psalms.  We will look at context and style, Law and Gospel content, and peel back as many layers as we can manage in the beautiful old poetry of the Bible.

‘What has God Done?’ Video from Sept. 29

A number of the Lay Leaders and Staff of Zion shared their memories, experiences, and dreams for our congregation.  This video served as the majority of the Sermon message for this year’s Stewardship Sunday.

Zion Celebrates 140 Years of Blessings!

Feb. 24th was the final Sunday of Zion’s Anniversary Celebration.  Our guest preacher was Rev. Ron Moritz, who served as Intentional Interim Minister at Zion from 2012 to 2013.  Since the weather that Sunday led to inhospitable driving conditions, we recorded Pastor Moritz’ sermon, and you may listen to it below:
