Welcome 

Thank you for visiting our website!


For Many Years, Oh God of Grace!

"The purpose of this congregation is to share the true Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, throughout our membership, our communities and the world."  

        

Zion is....a congregation of The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod.  The LCMS was chartered in 1847 and Zion joined Synod in 1880. 

Zion was chartered in 1873 and is one of the oldest continuous congregations of the LCMS between here and the west coast.

Zion is....a Christ centered, Bible believing congregation.  Based on the tenets of the Lutheran Reformation - Grace Alone, Faith Alone and Scripture Alone - Zion's focus is always the blood that Christ has shed for us.                                          

Zion is....a congregation committed to Christian education and youth.  Even before having their first pastor, classes were being held in a sod cabin. 

Zion is....a rural congregation with great diversity.  Locally, Zion draws members from Aurora, Bradshaw, Hampton, Henderson, Grand Island, Marquette, Polk and York.  The diversity of the congregation is reflected in the occupational pursuits of Zion's members.

Zion is....a mission minded church having shared members to start Immanuel, Polk: Salem and St. Peter, Hampton; and having helped St. Paul, Central City.  Mission starts were considered in Bradshaw and Sutton.  Currently Zion is sponsoring a preaching station in Aurora.  Mission groups at Zion have been active in Gospel outreach and support as well as social ministry.

Congregational Christmas Dinner

Mark your calendar Zion’s Congregational Christmas Dinner … Meatball Mania will be on Sunday, December 10, immediately following Worship. The Elizabeth LWML will provide the meatballs, potatoes, dessert and drinks. We are asking everyone else to bring a salad. There will be a free will donation to go to mission projects of the Elizabeth LWML. 


Shoe Box Christmas Gifts for Living Water Rescue Mission, York, Nebraska

Pack some Christmas spirit into a shoe box by filling it with various age appropriate items to give to families in need! Take a label from the tree and an age appropriate book and pack a shoe box size box with a variety of items. Wrap the box and attach the label. Bring it to church by Sunday, December 17. Thank you for spreading some Christmas cheer, and more importantly, the love of Christ. (There are some boxes in the "elevator room", if you need one.)


Adult Bible Class

Heresies and false teachings have plagued the Christian Church from her earliest days, but few realize how these false teachings still impact the Church today.  Join us at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings as we continue "One Truth, Many Lies," a Bible study that explores these significant false truths in the history of the Church and expose them to the truth of the Scriptures, following the three-part pattern of the Apostle's Creed:  (1) Who God is and what He has said, (2) The two natures of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and (3) The work of the Holy Spirit, the gift of salvation, the ministry of the Church, and the resurrection from the dead.  Participants will be equipped with the tools necessary to expose false teachings and remain faithful to God's Word.


Men's Bible Breakfast Study

 Join us as we study the Courageous Fathers of the Bible, which examines the lives of 12 real men in the Bible, the work of Christian fatherhood, and the challenges and victories these 12 men faced as they relied on God's grace.  The fathers that will be discussed include Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David, Job, Solomon, Joseph, Jairus, the Official, and the prodigal son's father.  We will meet every other Tuesday.  Please check calendar for updates.


Meals for Moms

The LWML is sponsoring a new caring ministry, Meals for Moms.  This ministry would provide frozen meals to families with newborns. We are asking members of the congregation to help us in this endeavor.  If you would be interested in helping provide a meal for a family, please add your name to the sign up sheet in the entry of the church or respond to Zion’s eNews. When there is a new baby, a member of the LWML will contact 5-10 of the volunteers to make a freezer meal...this would be a main dish but could also be dessert, bread...things that could be put in the freezer. (in disposable containers) Calls would be made on a rotating basis. We thank you in advance for your willingness to help! If you have any questions, contact Loa Winter or Kathy Gloystein.
