The mission of Zion Lutheran Church is to preach and teach the good news of Jesus Christ, serve the needs of others in our communities and around the world, worship in the Lutheran tradition celebrating God’s love and grace, and grow as a family in Christ.

News & Announcements

We will be resuming church services in person on Saturday, October 3 and Sunday, October 4. Saturday will be at 5pm at Zion with elements of our usual praise service.  Sunday will be at Salem at 9:00 am with elements of our usual traditional service.  At both, there will be differences from our normal worship.  We will then be rotating Sundays as before.

  • Conduct a self-screening for Covid19 symptoms: (temperature greater than 100 °F, new loss of taste or smell, new flu-like symptoms, contact with someone suspected of having Covid19). If any of these apply to you, please join us in worship from home.
  • Please sit in the designated pews only.
  • Practice physical distancing by family.
  • Sanitize your hands upon entering the building.
  • Masks must be worn at all times while indoors.
  • Offering plates and bulletins will be placed at the back of the sanctuary so individuals can pick them up
  • Please fill out the worship attendance form in your bulletin and place it in the basket as you leave. This may be used for COVID tracing if necessary.
  • Share the peace as comfortable, refraining from close contact with people outside your household. Use the peace sign, bow to the image of God in the other, wave, send a text with “peace” to someone not present.
  • We will only have instrumental music at this time, and we will wait to sing together again.
  • Please do not congregate either upon entering or leaving the church.
  • Ushers will dismiss you by pew.
  • Communion will not occur initially.
  • We will not gather for fellowship following the service.

As many people will still be uncomfortable attending yet, we will be in need of more people willing to help out with ushering duties, lecturing, and helping out with the live- streaming.  Please contact the office if you would feel comfortable doing any of these.

We are hosting an online fellowship time Monday mornings at 9am.  Check out our Facebook page for a link to a Zoom meeting at 9 am.  If you have never used Zoom before, you will be prompted to download the client.  If you do not have a webcam, feel contact Pr. Nicole to talk about other options for you to join in by phone.

Advent Devotional

This year, we are trying a new Advent practice: creating a Together in Christ Advent devotional. Each day will have a short devotion written by someone from Salem or Zion as we move through this season of preparation together. Please click this link to learn more about how to participate, or contact our offices or Pr. Nicole!  You can find the reading options for each day Advent Devotion Readings!


Calling all sewers! 

Many of you have seen the fabric masks going around.  While they are not suitable for doctors and nurses immediately serving patients, they are useable by some other hospital staff.  Our local hospital, Aspirus, has said that they are accepting donations of fabric masks for some of their staff members to use.  If you are interested in being a part of this effort, check out the pattern below (written by our own Marcia Nelson).  Both Salem and Zion are among several drop off locations for the masks.  Bring them by during our office hours and we will get them to the hospital.  Also, feel free to take pictures of the masks and post them to our Facebook page to inspire others and share another way we serve and love our neighbors at this time.
