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:

Lenten Midweek Worship at Zion


Vacation Bible School (VBS)

We’re preparing for another week of Bible Stories, Songs, Crafts, and FUN!

Set aside the week of June 15-19, and CLICK the image below to register!

Sunday Morning Bible Classes


(See the COVID-19 updates above)

We’re hoping to still be able to highlight and support our friends at these various ministries, however we thought that a “Hands On” Bible Study is currently a little out of place, given our Nation’s health concerns at this time.

Ultimate Date Night Event

POSTPONED – due to Coronavirus (watch for re-scheduling date)

Postponed April 25th 7-9 pm at Zion

(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:
