WITH A MESSAGE
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. beginning on Sunday, January 8th, as we begin "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.
A new Bible study is gearing up for Wednesday evenings from 7-8:00 p.m. during confirmation hour. We will be reading through/informally discussing the book "Uninvited" by Lysa Terkuerst (see photo/overview below). We will meet at Zion in the Parish Hall (Junior High classroom) starting next Wednesday, Jan 11.
The Installation of the Reverend David Feddern was at Zion Lutheran Church on December 18, 2016 at 3:00 p.m. This service is up in the archives of the live streaming available on this website.
The marriage policy of Zion Lutheran Church, a member congregation of The Lutheran Church - Missour Synod, is and always has been consistent with the Synod's beliefs on marriage.
