"The purpose of this congregation is to share the true Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, throughout our membership, our communities and the world."
Zion is....a congregation of The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. The LCMS was chartered in 1847 and Zion joined Synod in 1880.
Zion was chartered in 1873 and is one of the oldest continuous congregations of the LCMS between here and the west coast.
Zion is....a Christ centered, Bible believing congregation. Based on the tenets of the Lutheran Reformation - Grace Alone, Faith Alone and Scripture Alone - Zion's focus is always the blood that Christ has shed for us.
Zion is....a congregation committed to Christian education and youth. Even before having their first pastor, classes were being held in a sod cabin.
Zion is....a rural congregation with great diversity. Locally, Zion draws members from Aurora, Bradshaw, Hampton, Henderson, Grand Island, Marquette, Polk and York. The diversity of the congregation is reflected in the occupational pursuits of Zion's members.
Zion is....a mission minded church having shared members to start Immanuel, Polk: Salem and St. Peter, Hampton; and having helped St. Paul, Central City. Mission starts were considered in Bradshaw and Sutton. Currently Zion is sponsoring a preaching station in Aurora. Mission groups at Zion have been active in Gospel outreach and support as well as social ministry.
WITH A MESSAGE
With Pastor Cooper’s retirement, there won’t always be someone in the office at Zion. If you have information for eNews or prayer requests, you may just contact me by replying to eNews. If I have any questions or if the information should be on eNews I will ask either Pastor Ohlman, Pastor Gruber, Chairman Steve or Head Elder Shane. Thanks so much! Sharon Goertzen

WB2C......WeBelongToChrist.......… As of now, WB2C is in recess. Due to very low numbers of attendance at this time of year, the leaders of WB2C have decided to take a recess and step back and reevaluate our youth program. We will be holding a meeting in the near future with kids and adults to find out what their expectations are for WB2C and where you wish to go from here. We are all asking for your prayers for guidance from our Heavenly Father in this matter as we go forth to serve God's kingdom. Thank you so much.
