In-Person Worship and Holy Communion at Zion Lutheran Church

In-Person Worship and Communion

 

In-person worship services on Sundays have now been consolidated to One Sunday service at 10am. The Sunday service will be streamed live on Zion’s YouTube channel for those who would prefer to attend service from home. The link for the live stream can be found on the home page of our site and on the Worship Opportunities page.

Holy Communion will be offered at Sunday services. During these services, additional elements will be consecrated that will then be distributed on the following Saturday morning for congregants who do not attend the in-person service.

We now also offer the Wednesday 10am in-person service along with the Saturday evening 5pm in-person  service.

Additionally...on Sundays there is In-Person Sunday School from 9:10 am - 9:50 am upstairs in the  Parish  Hall.
