Worship Style here at Zion


We use the new Lutheran Service Book (LSB). We respect and use the historic liturgies of Divine Worship. Pastors will always be vested, the Altar adorned in the finest we have, and the worship reflects the love for our Lord.


Why worship with us?


Our worship is a celebration of the victory of our Lord Jesus Christ. The saving action of God through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is proclaimed to us through the Word of God. In and through that Word we celebrate our Lord opening the gates of heaven for us through His life, death, and resurrection. Our Church does not gather in worship to commemorate the "late departed" Jesus, but to witness to the resurrection of our Lord by proclamation, preaching, prayer, thanksgiving, and the sacraments celebrated and administered. Jesus Christ is in our midst according to His Promise.


Our Statement on Holy Communion Reception


Our worship service is open to all; however, as a matter of faith, we practice close communion. The Lord’s Supper is celebrated at this congregation in the confession and glad confidence that, as he says, our Lord gives into our mouths not only bread and wine but his very body and blood to eat and to drink for the forgiveness of sins and to strengthen our union with him and with one another. Our Lord invites to his table those who trust his words, repent of all sin, and set aside any refusal to forgive and love as he forgives and loves us, that they may show forth his death until he comes.


Because those who eat and drink our Lord’s body and blood unworthily do so to their great harm and because Holy Communion is a confession of the faith which is confessed at this altar, any who are not yet instructed, in doubt, or who hold a confession differing from that of this congregation and The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, and yet desire to receive the sacrament, are asked first to speak with the pastor or an usher.
