"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.

The LWML (Lutheran Women in Mission) is sponsoring a Shoe Box Christmas project! Members of the LWML will be giving shoe box Christmas gifts to the residents of Grace Children's Home in Henderson. We will also present "shoebox" gifts to the Living Water Rescue Mission in York. If your family would be interested in preparing one of these shoebox Christmas gifts for The Living Water Rescue Mission, please take a description of the project and have the shoe box gift to church by Sunday, December 14. The gifts will be "blessed" at that time. (This is the same day as "Merry Meatball Mania"), Thank you so much for your willingness to "share with those who are in need"! May God bless all of our giving this Christmas season!
