Welcome To Zion Lutheran Church
The Mission of Zion Lutheran Church is to reach out to the community as we embrace our fellow members, building on the strength of our heritage in the true Word of God. To this end, Zion's members see themselves as loving Christians called by God to serve Him according to His purpose.
You have come to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. Heb. 12:22-23

What to Think when Terror Strikes
A Message from Pastor Hale
When 9/11 happened it was a shock. Our country no longer seemed impervious and impenetrable. The U.S. was humbled. The recent coordinated terrorist attacks on Paris are France's version of our 9/11. We can identify with the helplessness, fear, and anger they are feeling.
What should our reaction be to violent acts perpetuated by man against others? First, Christ is not a political ruler. He did not come to set up physical borders to protect only certain, special people. He rules by His Spirit and Word, which always go together to forgive all and create faith. Jesus brings people into His kingdom by the holy Gospel. Only by forgiving people in the name of Christ are people changed in the heart. All real change is effected by the Lord Himself, not swords or guns or governments.
So first off, we are still secure in Christ's Word. God is our refuge, even if our country were to fall. No one can snatch faith away from us by force, though there are many temptations within and without to give it up. We fight a different sort of battle, a spiritual one. The pure Word of God must be our main concern, as it always should be. God will do the work of saving, even when it looks grim.
