Verse of the Day

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.  “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).

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 (

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!

Midwest Messenger Article on Zion "Can do" spirit

Endowment Committee

Click Here for more information

The purpose of Zion Endowment Fund is to support the ministry of the Church, sharing the good news of Jesus. Is the Lord calling you to direct some of your estate gifts to Zion?

Why do I need an estate plan? Without thoughtful preparation, discussion with legal counsel and the legal documents that flow from that process, you are leaving things “up in the air.” Someone else will decide. That means a court will make your decisions for you and that judge may not care about the Christian faith, your family, or the support of Christ’s kingdom. Led by God’s Spirit, you can put that plan together, and it will be followed. Your LCMS Gift Planning Counselor can help you get organized and to think and pray through your goals, getting you ready to meet with legal counsel. Contact Craig Stirtz at 402-616-0312 or

As we celebrate the gifts that God has given through Christ's death and resurrection, let this be an encouragement to you to consider estate planning. Craig Stirtz is a valuable, free asset who can help you.

The Zion Endowment Committee encourages you to think about the question: Why do I need an estate plan? We have worked with Craig Stirtz and know he would be very helpful in answering your questions.

God has helped us establish the Zion Endowment Fund and at this time the fund stands at a little over $11,000 and is invested in the LCMS Foundation. As stewards of this fund, we are looking to grow the fund for various ministries of Zion.
