Church is something that happens when people gather around Jesus.
Nothing less and so much more. Jesus is love. You are loved. I am loved.
Life is shared. Truth is spoken. Grace is poured out without exception.
People are set free. Gifts are released. Simple, isn’t it?
Worship at Zion Update: Pastor Sarah and the Council met and Zion will return to in-person worship beginning January 17th.
We will also live stream at 9 a.m. and record the service for your at-home worship. Please pray for our strength as a church during this difficult time, and check in on each other. May God bless you so that you may be a blessing to others.
The Sunday Service will be available to see online on Sunday afternoon or evening. Links are on the main page.
In-person Worship – We have returned to in-person worship. Worshipers are required to wear masks and to spread out throughout the sanctuary to maintain social distancing. Hand sanitizing stations will be available and encouraged for worshipers to use.
For those who are not ready to return to in-person worship, we are live streaming our worship service at 9:00 am. When the stream starts (approx. 5 minutes before the start of the service) it will become live on the Zion YouTube Channel. If you cannot join us at that time, you can use this link to watch the recorded video at a later time. Here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJg7euv1hgzoGwZUcsdYnWg
If you would like to help usher, lector or be a communion assistant at our services, please go to Signup Genius.
During the periods of video worship services only, please remember your financial obligation to Zion whether you worship with us or with other congregations. Give online with the link on the main page or mail your offering to the church.
Did You Know? - In traditional Lutheran worship, we make two confessions on many Sundays; a confession of sin and a confession of faith. In the first, we acknowledge who we are as sinners and saints, and in the second, we acknowledge who God is in the mystery of the Trinity.
Stained Glass Windows - During the month of December, 2009, Zion received two stained glass windows given in memory of Gilbert Rosenberg whose funeral service were held in October of 2008. One window depicts the baptism of Jesus and the second window is a depiction of the three crosses of Good Friday. The two windows compliment a previous given window given in memory of Magnie Peterson and all three are located in the north windows of the upper Narthex.
Worship Banners at Zion - Have you noticed the wonderful banners that grace our sanctuary? We have a set of white banners to commemorate All Saints Day, Christmas and Easter. During the season of Advent we have beautiful blue banners. Green banners will remind us of the seasons of Epiphany and the time after Pentecost, and the red banners will hang on Pentecost and Reformation Sundays. There are also banners specifically for baptisms and weddings. Each of our banners has been given as a memorial gift.
