2021 Midweek Lent Worship:

Join us for worship at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 3. When the characters in the Passion narrative look at Jesus, what do they see? Our Lenten series this year, based on the Gospel of St. Mark, will examine how the various people around Jesus viewed Him—and how we should view Him. We will “fix our eyes” on what Jesus has done to save us from our sins by His holy, precious blood and innocent sufferings and death, and celebrate what God sees on account of His work: our justification for His sake.

Midweek two, March 3, “Sleepy Eyes” - In Gethsemane, Jesus’ inner circle of Peter, James, and John can’t keep their eyes open to watch and pray with Jesus for even an hour, while Jesus comes to see that His Father’s will is that He drink the cup of God’s wrath when He comes to the “hour” of His suffering.

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!

~ Pastor Kelly G Mitteis, Zion Board of Elders, Administrative Council of Zion
