WELCOME! 

We invite you to join us as we gather for worship, learning, fellowship,

and serving our community in the name of Christ.

 

 

We’ll do our best to make you feel welcome no matter whether you:

  • Have the Small Catechism memorized or haven’t been to church in years…

  • Came on your own or came to make somebody else happy…

  • Are looking for a church home or just need spiritual nourishment in this moment…

  • Have questions about God and faith or have it all figured out (most of us are full of questions)…

  • Are single, married, partnered, divorced or widowed…

  • Have kids in tow or don’t have kids…

  • Like a service with organ and choir or prefer to hear a keyboard, guitar and trumpet…

  • Want to join in the singing or just like letting the music flow over you…

  • Speak English as your primary language or speak a language we don’t know yet (we do worship in English)

  • Are liberal or conservative or don’t pay attention to politics at all…

  • Are old in years but young at heart or young in years but already wise…

 

We welcome you no matter your race, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity.  And we’ll do our best to learn how we can enable you to be part of things if you have special needs.

 

But we’ll be honest – we won’t look very diverse at first glance.  Yet among us you’ll find a wide variety of:  religious backgrounds; ethnicities; educational experiences; work histories; personal opinions; and political perspectives.  And while some of us have deep roots in the community – like five generations deep! – some of us are recent transplants from other places.

 

And while we’re being honest, we have to tell you that we aren’t perfect – we’re just a bunch of forgiven sinners trying to be faithful followers of Jesus.  But we hope you’ll feel that there’s room at Zion for you to discover how God is at work in your life.

 

We’d love to have you join in as we rejoice in God’s grace and respond to God’s love by giving to others.  If you’d like to learn more, check out how we describe our mission and what it means that we are Christians in the Lutheran tradition.

 

So welcome!
