The Saturday evening Service and the early Sunday service offer touches
of evening serenity and morning glory.
We gather for worship every Saturday evening beginning at 5:00 p.m. Dress casually. Move around in the sanctuary freely. Families, couples, and singles are welcome. All of our services are wheelchair accessible; but many members and friends with mobility challenges enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of this informal service.
We have two Sunday morning services, our traditional liturgical service at 8:00 a.m., and our family-friendly service at 10:30 a.m. In between our two Sunday morning services we offer Sunday school classes for all ages.
What's special about our Saturday evening Service? We dress casually, and worship freely around the Word. Following our worship on the fourth Saturday of every month, a group of us use our Entertainment Cards and enjoy eating out at a local restaurant. We always have more than enough cards or coupons for all who join us.
What's special about our early Sunday morning service at 8:00 a.m.? Here we enjoy the traditions of Lutheran liturgy, using The Lutheran Book of Worship (settings 1 and 2) and With One Voice (Bread of Life setting). The early hour heightens our ability to focus on worship alone ... with all the friendliness that always goes with Zion's hospitality.
What's special about our late Sunday morning service at 10:30 a.m.? We feel the freedom to step away from the structured order of the liturgy, and incorporate family-friendly elements of worship and praise. There is always a children's sermon at this service. We try to use songs that invite our youth and our younger families to feel more at home. We love the inclusive character of this service and its livelier feel.
Again, all of our services are wheelchair accessible. We have a powerful pipe organ to accompany worship, a Senior Choir that alternates singing at the early and late services on Sunday, with a Sunday School choir that sings once a month. Please meet our worship staff:
