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, Hordville,Grand Island, Marquette, Polk, Sutton 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.











BOOKS NEEDED: The LWML received a $250 Thrivent Team Action Grant to purchase items for the Tot Totes. We would also like to add some more children's books. If you would like to donate some new or gently used children's books, just drop them off in the tote at church. Thanks!

Come Worship With Us Thanksgiving Day, November 26, 2020 - 10:00 a.m.

Live Stream  Worship Bulletin

GOD WITH US – Christmas is a time for reflecting. We think of holidays past and the one that’s upon us. As you hear the messages of God With Us, the Advent 2020 devotions from Lutheran Hour Ministries & the Lutheran Laymens’ League, consider the many ways that God is present in your life—through His Word, your loved ones, the fellowship of believers, Holy Communion, and more. His love for us is personal. He proved that in a Bethlehem manger—God’s only Son born for all mankind, so that through the Christ Child we might know life with Him forevermore. Please join us beginning on Sunday, November 29th at 10:00 am.

Sunday School News

We met Eddie the Comfort Dog and his handlers Don and Connie on Sunday, September 13.  They talked to the kids and Bible Study about the service that comfort dogs provide. This is my fourth or fifth attempt to get Eddie to visit--he is a very busy dog! The presentation was very interesting and a great service to many people.

I could still use another teacher to help co-teach for the Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd age class, please text me at 402-694-8591 if you think you could help teach this year.

Thank you for all the snack donations! I know this kids love this and many of you were very generous with your donations and so thank you once again for your generosity!  Feel free to call or text me with any care or concerns! Thanks! Lacey Panko

Serving the Lord in Taiwan-Barbara Rebentisch

Board of Elders have choen to send the SPECIAL MISSIONS OFFERING collected on October 25th to support Missionary Barb Rebentisch, our Fall Mission Speaker, and her ongoing work to translate and interpret the Bible into Mandarin Chinese in Taiwan. “105 Your word is a lamp to my feet
and a light to my path.” (Psalm 119:105)

Barbara Rebentisch serves in Taiwan, based in ChiaYi. In this role, she translates and interprets between Mandarin and English to facilitate the communication of the Gospel in this part of the world. In particular, Barb is daily and regularly involved in the ongoing work to develop faithful resources in the Chinese language, intended to serve the entire Chinese-speaking world, both at home and abroad. Her service builds relationships with the community and leaders, sharing the Gospel with them through the written and spoken Word, and helping them to do the same with their neighbors. Barbara’s hometown is Paullina, Iowa, where she attended Zion Lutheran Church. She currently is a member of King of Kings Lutheran Church in Roseville, Minn. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree from Concordia University Nebraska, Seward. She earned her master’s degree from Doane University in Crete, Neb. Her hobbies include reading, music, walking, chatting with friends and watching crime dramas. Over the years, Barbara has been heavily involved in ministry and service to the people of Taiwan. She helped with youth ministry, was an evangelistic social worker, worked in counseling services and taught English as a Second Language (ESL) classes in various cities throughout this country. In addition, she worked as a clinical supervisor for Lighted Path Recovery Services and as a counselor in the State of Nebraska Corrections system. Pray for Barbara as she serves in Taiwan. Let us give thanks to God that Barbara is serving His children in this part of the world.

W.O.W. (Women Of the Word)  Bible Study meets on Tuesday mornings,7:00 AM @ St. Peter Hampton Fellowship Hall. The name of the study is "JOY-A Study of Philippians" by Deb Burma.

If you have any questions, contact Kathy Gloystein. (402-416-7753)


It is with Easter Joy that we share the following Easter Video via YouTube! To God be the Glory!

Alter Guild

Altar Guild meets quarterly on the first Monday evening of the month and welcomes new members. Please join us if you’re interested in helping prepare the Altar and Sanctuary for worship services each week with Altar Cloths, Banners, Flowers, and Paraments. Our next meeting will be April 6th at 8:00 PM at the Parish Hall. “8 O LORD, I love the habitation of your house and the place where your glory dwells.” (Psalm 26:8):21a)

The Altar Guild encourages the congregation to provide FRESH FLOWERS to celebrate a special occasion (wedding, anniversary, etc.), to honor someone, or to give Thanks & Praise to our heavenly Father. A sign-up Poster is located in the South Hallway of the Narthex. 12 The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land. (Song of Songs 2:12)

Meals for Moms

Meals for Moms (and other families) has been an outreach for the last several years and it has been our joy to help out families in this way. A special thank you to all who have been a part of this! When we are aware of a new baby or other circumstances, we call some of our volunteers and ask for a frozen meal. (We give a two week notice.) Those meals are delivered to the fellowship hall and then we deliver them to the families. If you would like to be a part of this outreach or have any questions, contact Loa Winter (402-694-1777) or Kathy Gloystein (402-416-7753).
