Meals for Moms

Meals for Moms (and other families) has been an outreach for the last several years. A special thank you to all who have been a part! When we are aware of a new baby or other circumstance, 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 added to this outreach or have any questions, contact Loa Winter (402-694-1777) or Kathy Gloystein (402-416-7753) or sign up in the entry of the church.


LCMS Foundation: In a complex world, each of us need trusty advisers to lead us to proper decisions and actions. Considering tax consequences of gifting decisions from your estate can save tens of thousands of dollars that can augment gifts to family or ministry. Your LCMS Gift Planning Counselor can help make sure that you are asking your tax planner all the questions you need to ask. Contact Craig Stirtz at 402-616-0312 or craig.stirtz@lfnd.org

Zion’s Endowment Committee: An attorney was the first piece of the puzzle in estate planning. An accountant/tax planner is an important second piece of the puzzle.

Craig offers free, confidential, and family focused planning for those wishing to include one or more LCMS ministries in their estate plan - including our congregation. For more information about his services, plan to attend the workshop or contact Craig at 402-616-0312 or craig.stirtz@lfnd.org.

Have you considered Zion or another favorite ministry as a beneficiary designation? Zion Endowment Fund was created to provide structure for those wishing to make gifts, both during their lives and at the time of their death, that will support ministry for many years to come.

New Pictorial Directory for Zion

Zion's 150th Anniversary Committee is looking for volunteers to help organize a new pictorial directory for Zion during the 2022 year. (To be ready by our anniversary September 17, 2023) If you could help in this way, please contact Mark Klute (402-631-8832) or Lynn Gloystein (402-416-7754)

150th ANNIVERSARY COMMITTEE needs 1 more people to serve on the subcommittee for Special Projects/Mementos. If you're interested in serving on this subcommittee or have any questions please reply to any eNews (savedbygrace@hamilton.net ) After this committee is formed, you could meet any time that is convenient. We are also looking for older photos of Zion. If you have any and would share, it would be appreciated. It could be either of the buildings or older confirmation photos, etc. We'd scan your photo and return them to you.


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.

BABY BOTTLE PROJECT – the annual Baby Bottle Project sponsored by the LWML runs from Mother’s Day to Father’s Day. We are encouraged to open our hearts to mothers, fathers, and babies as we use the bottles for donations to the Crisis Pregnancy Center in York. Unlike larger cities, the York Pregnancy and Family Recourse Center is the sole recognized provider of Christ-centered, life-affirming services to those with pregnancy-related concerns. This unique position allows the York Crisis Pregnancy Center to compete directly with abortion providers in nearby cities. Every family will be given a bottle…and they make take more than one!  A $250 Thrivent Action Team grant will also be used to buy needed items for the center.


SUNDAY SCHOOL NEWS – This past Quarter students participated in Lutheran Hour Ministries Gospel Adventures, Zambia Bound. Our offering money will be used to provide complete school supply kits at $15/kit. (backpack and supplies) The students set a goal of 25 kits for a total of $375, and we raised enough money for 27 kits! The Adult Bible Class also contributed to the effort. Zambia's constitution says it's a Christian county, and it's filled with churches and people who love Jesus. We know that "God Is Good In Every Way" and we pray that Zambia and we will be lights showing God's goodness in the world.
