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.

David Ahn, Seminarian student

Dear Zion Lutheran Church, Thank you for that encouraging letter this Christmas. It is encouraging to see that people at Zion Lutheran Church are thinking of me. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a happy new year. I went back home for break and spent time with my family. I also had the chance to preach twice at two local LCMS churches. Spring semester will start soon. Hopefully, I can learn a lot this semester. I will be taking classes on worship liturgy and advanced preaching this semester. Pray that I will learn a lot. Pray that the Lord will help me gain knowledge that can help me as a pastor in the future. I will get my vicarage call in May. Pray that the Lord will alleviate my anxiety as I wait for the call. Please continue to pray for me as I study at the seminary. In the name of Jesus, David Ahn

Adult Bible Class

Please join us as we read and study current articles in the Lutheran Witness and Lutheran Small Cathechism.  Everyone welcome and babysitting provided.


What does the Bible have to Say about Life Today?  What is grace?  What do we know about heaven?  How can I trust God more than anything?  How can I think about others more than myself?  What is the Law?  What is the Gospel?  Why does it matter?  Why should I go to church?  Are Baptism and Communion really that important?  If you or someone you know wants to understand what Lutherans believe about our heavenly Father’s love; our Savior’s presence with us in the past, present, and future; and the Holy Spirit’s power for daily living, than contact one of the Elders (Shane Dose – (402) 631-8965,; Nathan Panko – (402) 762-5324,, or Boyd Stuhr, Jr. – (402) 366-8608, and let them know you’re interested in attending An Introduction to the Lutheran Faith.
