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!


The new BAPTISMAL BANNER below was purchased in memory of Norma Rhode by her family. “ 8 O Lord, I love the habitation of your house and the place where your glory dwells.”

Psalm 26:8

Sunday School News

We met Eddie the Comfort Dog and his handlers Don and Connie last 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

WOW -Women of the Word Bible Study

W.O.W. (Women Of the Word) will be starting a new Bible Study on September 15, 2020, at 7:00 AM @ St. Peter Hampton Fellowship Hall. We will be meeting every Tuesday morning. 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. This close look at St. Paul's Letter to the Philippians unpacks messages of contentment, confidence, humility, and hope-all found in Christ and infused with joy." All women are invited to join us. If you have any questions, contact Kathy Gloystein. (402-416-7753)

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).
