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.

First day of Sunday School and Adult class will be this Sunday September 11th. There will be a Sunday School opening immediately after the service at the front (chancel area) of the church every Sunday. Please send the children to the front while the congregation is being ushered out. These openings will involve a short devotion, prayer, offering, and birthday recognition. The Adult class will informally meet in church for the first week only, after that in the parish hall like we have in the past. For the first Sunday, (September 11th) let’s plan to meet toward the back of the church away from where the Sunday School will be having their opening.
We are planning to offer youth group meetings at St. Peter on Wednesday, Sept 7 & 21 at 8:00 PM. 6th – 12th graders of St. Peter and Zion, please attend and bring a friend. The board of education of St. Peter will provide the refreshments for Sept. 7th. We hope to see you then.
With Pastor Cooper’s retirement, there won’t always be someone in the office at Zion. If you have information for eNews or prayer requests, you may just contact me by replying to eNews. If I have any questions or if the information should be on eNews I will ask either Pastor Ohlman, Pastor Gruber, Chairman Steve or Head Elder Shane. Thanks so much! Sharon Goertzen
