Effective, March 16, 2020, Zion Lutheran Church is canceling all church activities and closing the church facilities until further notice.
This closure includes Wednesday night programs, Sunday morning worship and activities, church activities that take place away from the church property, and outside group meetings at the church. Zion staff will work modified hours at the church and will be available via phone or email during the week. Information about how and when to reach Zion staff, as well as ongoing updates, will continue to be shared with all members via email.
O God, where hearts are fearful and constricted, grant courage and hope. Where anxiety is infectious and widening, grant peace and reassurance. Where impossibilities close every door and window, grant imagination and resistance. Where distrust twists our thinking, grant healing and illumination. Where spirits are daunted and weakened, grant soaring wings and strengthened dreams. All these things we ask in the name of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
