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:


LWML Zone Rally – Oct. 19

All women and girls are welcome to join the ladies of the ‘Land of Lakes’ Zone of the Lutheran Women in Mission at Zion for their Fall Rally.  Registration begins at 9:30 and is $3, and includes lunch.  The speaker for the event is Laura Bauer from “Visual Faith Ministries”.  RSVP’s are appreciated – please contact the Church Office.

Oktoberfest at Zion – Oct. 26

Our annual dinner and auction event will take place from 5-8 pm.  In addition to the traditional German food and craft root-beer stand, the event will feature live music by “Boundarywater”.  A free-will donation is accepted at the door to cover dinner, and all proceeds will be supporting Zion’s Family Resource Center, and other Mission projects of the congregation.  All are welcome!

Confirmation Sunday – Oct. 27

We will celebrate with the young people of our Congregation who have been working and learning for four years of Confirmation Classes, as they publicly confirm God’s gifts of Faith and Salvation at the 8 a.m. service.

Men’s Breakfast – Nov. 2

All men of Zion, young and old, are invited to attend a Saturday morning Men’s Breakfast.  Starting at 8 a.m., and ending at 10:30, we will get together for Fellowship, Prayer, Bible Study, and an orientation for anyone who might be interested in learning about becoming an Usher for Sunday Services.  RSVP’s are appreciated, but not required – please contact the Church Office.

‘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.

An exciting addition for Fall 2019…

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:
