Zion’s Response and Updates


Zion, Petoskey is prayerfully considering and carefully planning how we might begin gathering publicly in our building in the not-too-distant future.

We will continue to do our best to honor the Governor’s Executive Order(s), listen to the CDC and other health authorities, AND remain God’s people who share our eternal hope in our Risen Lord, Jesus!  As we move toward the next steps, our church facility may not be operating in its usual manner, but the “Church” (the believers in God’s love and promise) is still the church.

Please DO NOT HESITATE to contact the Church Office or Pastor Peters if you have a need or emergency – we will be checking messages and email, and will do our best to help in a safe and Godly manner.

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:

Vacation Bible School (VBS)

POSTPONED until 2021

We had been preparing for another week of Bible Stories, Songs, Crafts, and FUN!  …but sadly, it seemed best to wait.

We hope that you’ll be ready to join us NEXT YEAR!

Sunday Morning Bible Classes


(See the COVID-19 updates above)

We are conducting on-line Bible Studies on Sunday mornings, please email for the link to join in on the Zoom meeting each week at 9:30 a.m.

Ultimate Date Night Event

NEW DATE: June 20 at 7 p.m.

Rescheduled: June 20 at 7 p.m.

(Doors Open at 6:30)

The Ultimate Date Night Wonder of Love Tour with Jay and Laura Laffoon is a 90-minute comedic look at this thing called Love.  Using their unique blend of music, comedy and Biblical truth the Laffoons reveal 6 different ways to grow love in your marriage!

Couples will walk away with a renewed love for their spouse and practical tools to continue building the love in their relationship.

The Laffoons are real people with real lives walking through a real marriage. They like to call themselves “marriage edu-tainers”, combining education with entertainment. And the Laffoons put their real marriage of over 30 years on display.

The Laffoons fearlessly share their own experiences as they unravel what they’ve learned about the mysteries of intimate relationships, believing that all married couples share the same struggles and joys along the journey! Their humorous, and entertaining transparency offers couples permission to laugh with each other and courage to continue growing a future together.


Childcare will be available, please RSVP your need with the Church Office.

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:
