Private Prayer & Sacrament

Due to public worship on hold, private prayer and sacrament with the pastor will be made available by appointment during these hours:
The morning sessions will be offered in pastor's office in the parish center. Afternoon and evening sessions will be located in the sanctuary. Assisting the afternoon and evening sessions will be one of our Zion elders. Members interested in meeting with pastor should call the church office or pastor in advance to be scheduled.

The situation of this epidemic is dynamic; new announcements, new changes continue to unfold far beyond even our imagination. Yet our confidence is in our gracious and loving God. His promise given in Psalm 91 to all who abide in Him is to keep you in all your ways. By the Spirit's guidance, our careful, wise thinking and decisions mindful of the best care of our congregation's members, the ministry of Zion Lutheran will be served well in the coming days. To God be the Glory!
