Verse of the Day

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!

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. "Sure, we find joy in our triumphs, but not so much in the trials. Yet real joy, genuine joy, is always ours in the saving grace of Christ Jesus.

Resources for the coronavirus pandemic

NEW DIRECTED HEALTH MEASURES enacted on November 11, 2020 direct “Churches and Places of Worship to maintain six (6) feet of separation between household units” while attending worship services. “10 Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.” (Romans 13:10) Thank You for your assistance! Board of Elders     


1. Stay home. No non-essential errands and no social gatherings. Respect the 10-person limits.

2. Socially distance your work. Work from home or use the six-foot rule as much as possible in the workplace.

3. Shop alone. Do this only once a week and do not take your family with you.

4. Help kids social distance. Play at home, no group sports, and no playgrounds.

5. Help seniors stay at home. This can be done by shopping for them. Do not visit long-term facilities.

6. Exercise daily. Do your best to stay as healthy and safe as you can.

*7. Study the Word daily. Spend time in God’s Word, Portals of Prayer, LWML Mustard Seed Devotions, or other free resources available through Concordia Publishing ( and Lutheran Hour Ministries (


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).
