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

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

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.

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."

aZion 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.

Undie Sundays-The LWML will be collecting NEW underwear for Orphan Grain Train. Dennis Senff says that men's, women's, boy's and girl's in all sizes are greatly needed. Could we donate 800 pair of underwear? The LWML is celebrating 80 years of God's blessings and has encouraged us to "What's your 80?" Through a Thrivent grant we already have 248 pair and only need 552 more.😁 You can participate by donating underwear or money. One pair of underwear costs an average of $1. Just put your NEW underwear in the basket or your money in the container and we'll be helping Orphan Grain Train's Mission of "Sharing resources and bringing Christ's name and character to needy people both far and near."
