We may not be doing ministry in-person

but our ministry continues and there are still bills to pay!


During this time when you cannot present your offerings in-person, please continue to support the church as generously as you can. Giving in response to what God has given us is a spiritual practice for all times, each of us giving as we are able to in that moment.  We invite you to mail your offerings to the church or donate electronically.  There is a link below for an online payment program called “Simply Giving”. This program enables you to make donations at the time of your choice or automatically on a regularly scheduled basis.  You can also set up Zion Lutheran Church as a payee for your bank account using your bank's online banking system.  (Visit your bank's website for details.)


And please continue to be generous in your prayers

for each other, our congregation, our community, and the world!


Simply Giving

Simply Giving enables members to make their donations to the church on a scheduled basis through automatic deductions and electronic transfers from either a checking or savings account.  Electronic giving makes contributing to the church’s missions and ministry simple and convenient for the donor and it helps the church manage its finances more reliably.  For more information about Simply Giving click here.
