Worship at Zion

We’re so glad you’re here.  You’ve found yourself in a place where imperfect and broken people gather to receive the gifts of our loving and gracious God - and we’re honored that you are part of it.  Each service, side by side, we’ll hear the words of God through Holy Scripture, we’ll be strengthened by the Sacraments that Jesus Christ Himself instituted, and we’ll participate in the fellowship that God gives us through the family gathered in this place.

Because Christ died and rose again - you’re freed from the sin, guilt, imperfectness and ugliness of the world around you. United by the Love of Christ, you’ll go back out into the world encouraged, refreshed and changed.  The Family of God in this place is strong - and because you’re part of it, you’re never alone.


We take worship seriously at Zion, but not too seriously. Carefully designed to appeal to anyone wherever their walk of faith has led them, regardless of age, regardless of schedule. Worship generally lasts about an hour. Spoken liturgy services usually last around 45 minutes.  During this time of transition we will not have Wednesday services.

Because we believe it's important, we celebrate the Lord's Supper at every worship opportunity.

Welcome Home.  It’s good to be here.

A message from the Atlantic District - LCMS:

The Coronavirus has caused much concern in our communities as many have watched it spread. Fear does not own as children of God, but we do need to be prudent to prevent the disease from spreading.

The CDC has provided guidelines for public spaces and worship areas. Below are some simple recommendations which we can all follow to help protect one another.

The recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC.gov):

• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
• Stay home when you are sick.
• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Please pray for our world, country and community.

If you have concerns you are welcome to speak directly with Pastor Chip or the Church Council.
