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.
Be sure to take the picture tour of our church and see the activities of our Sunday School, Vacation Bible School and Ziggy (Zion's Inspired Group of God's Youth).
- LENTEN WORSHIP - begins with Ash Wednesday on March 5th at 4:30 and 7:00 pm. The theme for this year's Lenten meditations is "Symbols of Suffering." The first theme for Ash Wednesday is "Symbols of Suffering -- The Cross in the Cup." Imposition of ashes will be offered at both services.

The ladies from Lydia Circle, and Rebekah Circle presented farewell wishes and gifts to give to the Pastor and his wife Mary.

Vacation Bible School 2013 - Thank You
Thank you for a wonderful Vacation Bible School 2013
The week of June 23-27 children learned about our one true God through five mountaintop Bible accounts. The children loved to explore the 35 foot tall mountain inside the church.
