What to expect on Sunday mornings at Zion Lutheran

When do you worship?
We worship every Sunday at 10:00am. We also offer a variety of seasonal worship services and special events throughout the year. Click on “Discover More” in the menu above to check out our weekly e-newsletter and monthly newsletter!

Where do I go when I get here?
For worship and other events in the sanctuary, go through one of the red doors facing First Street; the sanctuary is handicap accessible via a marked ramp on the side of the building nearest the park. The main offices at Zion Lutheran Church are located on the south side of the building, and that entrance is also labeled with an outdoor sign. Free parking is available in the municipal parking lot across First Street.

What’s worship like? (How long does it last?!)
Our Sunday worship observes the rich tradition of the Christian church: we read from Scripture, hear a sermon, sing hymns and songs, pray for one another and those in need, celebrate Holy Communion, and go forth to serve. (Worship typically lasts a little more than an hour.) Following worship, join us for coffee hour featuring plenty of snacks—it takes place right in the sanctuary!

What should I wear?

Zion doesn’t have a dress code. In summer, you’ll see everything from suits to shorts!

Are there special ministries for kids and youth?
Yes! Faith formation for children, youth, and families centers around worship. When you come to worship, be sure to locate our “Pray & Play” area in the sanctuary, featuring kid-friendly bulletins and more. Parents with small children are encouraged to worship with their kids, rather than sending them off to a nursery!

Faith Table, the centerpiece of our faith formation ministry, follows worship each week. You can read more about the faith formation ministry at Zion Lutheran Church by clicking here.

Can I receive Holy Communion?
We celebrate Holy Communion every week. All baptized Christians, from any tradition or denomination, are welcome to receive, and guidance is provided in worship. If you don’t wish to receive communion, you can still participate by coming forward for a blessing from the pastor. If you wish to receive communion but are unable to walk forward, the servers will come to you.

Is there an offering?
Zion sustains its ministries through the regular giving of its members and friends. Financial stewardship is an opportunity to respond to the gift of God’s abundance by giving back to God through financial support of the church. We certainly don’t expect newcomers to put anything in the offering plate; it’s completely up to you! Learn more about giving to Zion Lutheran.
