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.

The Women's Bible Study Group has completed the study, "Breathe" but will continue to meet:
Thursdays-July 21 through August 11
Time: 7:00-8:00 AM
Where: St. Peter Fellowship Hall
We will be reading/studying the book, "Not a Fan" by Kyle Idleman
"Not a Fan" calls you to consider the demands and rewards of being a true disciple. With frankness sprinkled with humor, Idleman invites you to live the way Jesus lived, love the way he loved, pray the way he prayed, and never give up living for the One who gave His all for you.
Each person will be responsible for purchasing the book. :)
After August 11, we will continue the study of that book on Friday mornings( starting August 19) from 7-8 AM in Jean Carnoali's room at Hampton Lutheran School.
We would love to have anyone interested join us! If you have any questions, contact Kathy Gloystein (402-416-7753)
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
