What to Expect

What are services like?
You’ll be greeted as you come in and handed one of our worship bulletins, which will assist you with participating in the worship service. The worship style is a blend of a liturgical order of service from the Lutheran Service Book (LSB), traditional hymns, and more contemporary music led by the praise team. Everything you need to know will be printed for you in the worship bulletin. We celebrate Holy Communion every first and third Sunday of the month, as well as the fifth Sunday when applicable.

What is the community like?
We are a church that honors the Bible as the written Word of God – the very voice of Jesus, our Good Shepherd. God the Holy Spirit, through this Word, creates and sustains trust in Jesus Christ. We treasure the special means by which Jesus Himself dwells among us with His forgiving grace. Therefore, our Synod is very much Christ-centered. Our focus is on Jesus Christ and His presence among us, namely, in the Word and Sacraments of Holy Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.

What if I'm not a Christian?
While Zion Lutheran Church is a Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod, we are open to all people seeking to grow in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Being Lutheran isn't nearly as important as simply having a heart to seek Christ. If you want to learn more about Christianity and the Lutheran doctrine, please speak with the pastor after the service!

    Zion Lutheran Church is a warm friendly place. When my husband and I moved to town, we wanted to look around at all the local churches. Zion was the first place we visited and the last. It reminded me of the church I grew up in and the church I wanted to raise my children in. It isn't a huge congregation, and it isn't the most modern building, but that is a big part of it's charm. We were able to get to know everybody, and they could get to know us. I know that if I need to have a church praying for me in my time of need, that the people praying for me, really know me and love me. That is rare these days. Pastor Edwards is a tremendous speaker, and I look forward to hearing him preach the word of God every Sunday. He presents the word with both law and gospel, and in a way everyone can understand. If you are looking for a church where you can love and be loved by everyone, where you can learn and grow in God's grace and mercy, and where you can be a part of something bigger than yourself, then I would highly recommend giving Zion a try. See you Sunday!
