Zion Lutheran Church has always been an active part of the world community. 

From our yearly World Mission Sunday to support of rural ministry,

from Lutheran World Relief to proving a community used furniture room

and supporting the local food bank, Zion is "a church without walls". 

Our members recognize the importance of their baptisms and through worship

and regular holy communion, believe God's call to discipleship is a call to faith in action. 

We invite you to worship with us.

"All are welcome in this place"
