Welcome in the Name of Christ:
The members of Zion welcome you! Your presence is a blessing to us, and we pray that your faith will be strengthened through the Good News of the gift of salvation freely given by our Heavenly Father.
Our Church is affiliated with the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod and with the Kansas LCMS. We hope you spend some time learning about the Lutheran Church at these sites and check out the rest of our site for news and events at Zion, and we would invite everyone to come by to worship with us.
If you have questions please feel free to call the Church office, or e-mail us from the links on this page.
UPDATE 3/31/2020: DUE TO THE RECENT STATE MANDATED STAY-AT-HOME ORDER, ZION STAFF WILL BE WORKING FROM HOME. PHONE MESSAGES ARE BEING CHECKED REMOTELY SO IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS, PLEASE CALL THE CHURCH OFFICE AND LEAVE YOUR MESSAGE IN THE APPROPRIATE VOICEMAIL BOX AND WE WILL GET BACK TO YOU. IF YOU HAVE AN IMMEDIATE NEED OR AN EMERGENCY, PLEASE CONTACT PASTOR LETCHER DIRECTLY. SUNDAY SERVICES (including 4/1/20) ARE BEING LIVE-STREAMED ON ZION’S FACEBOOK PAGE AND AUDIO CD’S ARE ALSO AVAILABLE. UPDATE 3/27/2020: AT THIS TIME ALL MEETINGS & WORSHIP AT ZION LUTHERAN CHURCH HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED THROUGH APRIL 5, 2020. AT THAT TIME, LEADERSHIP WILL REEVALUATE BASED ON CURRENT INFORMATION AND STATUS IN NEWTON & HARVEY COUNTY AS TO WHETHER OR NOT TO EXTEND THE SUSPENSION OF SERVICES DURING HOLY WEEK & EASTER. REMEMBER, we have seen that this is something that is ever changing as the current crisis is very fluid. Know that Pastor Letcher and the Board of Elders care very much about the people of God in their care. We will do what we can to keep you involved with the worship life of the congregation. We are exploring ways to keep Worship, in some form, available to you. Watch Zion’s Facebook page for live streaming and an Audio file of Pastor Letcher’s sermons found on the Media tab above. Regarding your offering, for the time being, please send your offering to the church via US Postal Service. As we’ve watched recent developments on the Coronavirus (Covid-19), we remember that God is our refuge & strength, a very present help in trouble (). Zion Lutheran Church staff and leadership teams continue to be in prayer & discussion to seek the Lord’s leading on the best next steps for our church. We will continue to monitor all updates from the CDC & other health outlets as well as state and local agencies as we stay flexible to modify our schedule & ministries until the current public health crisis subsides. As decisions are made regarding weekly events & Worship at Zion we will continue to update you here as well as through mail, email & social media.
