ZION CROSSES

Thank you for visiting our website!


For Many Years, Oh God of Grace!

"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, Hordville,Grand Island, Marquette, Polk, Sutton 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.

Come Worship With Us, December 2, 2020 - 7:00 p.m.

Live Stream   Worship Bulletin  Sermon Outline

GOD WITH US – Christmas is a time for reflecting. We think of holidays past and the one that’s upon us. As you hear the messages of God With Us, the Advent 2020 devotions from Lutheran Hour Ministries & the Lutheran Laymens’ League, consider the many ways that God is present in your life—through His Word, your loved ones, the fellowship of believers, Holy Communion, and more. His love for us is personal. He proved that in a Bethlehem manger—God’s only Son born for all mankind, so that through the Christ Child we might know life with Him forevermore. Please join us beginning on Sunday, November 29th at 10:00 am.

Shoe Box Christmas Project

The LWML Shoe Box Christmas project will benefit the York Pregnancy and Family Resource Center and Living Water Rescue Mission, both in York. Gifts will go to babies and children ages 2-5 at the pregnancy center and to adults at the rescue mission. Take a tag from the tree, fill a shoe box with suggested items and one of the Gospel message books, put the tag on the box and return to Zion by December 13. Thank you for joining us on this mission.

Can Tree for the Pantry

Tis the season for giving and the LWML are prayerfully challenging Zion to donate enough canned goods to build a “Can Tree” from the floor to the balcony!! Starting November 29, we will be accepting donations of canned goods through the month of December. There will be a special donation receptacle in the Narthex to place your items! All canned goods will be donated to the Hamilton County Food Pantry in Aurora! We appreciate your support and your donations!!! This is in lieu of our "Merry Meatball Mania Meal" which will be postponed until next year.

Resources for the coronavirus pandemic

NEW DIRECTED HEALTH MEASURES enacted on November 11, 2020 direct “Churches and Places of Worship to maintain six (6) feet of separation between household units” while attending worship services. “10 Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.” (Romans 13:10) Thank You for your assistance!

COVID-19 UPDATES – SIX RULES TO KEEP YOU & YOUR NEIGHBORS IN NEBRASKA HEALTHY:

1. Stay home. No non-essential errands and no social gatherings. Respect the 10-person limits.

2. Socially distance your work. Work from home or use the six-foot rule as much as possible in the workplace.

3. Shop alone. Do this only once a week and do not take your family with you.

4. Help kids social distance. Play at home, no group sports, and no playgrounds.

5. Help seniors stay at home. This can be done by shopping for them. Do not visit long-term facilities.

6. Exercise daily. Do your best to stay as healthy and safe as you can.

*7. Study the Word daily. Spend time in God’s Word, Portals of Prayer, LWML Mustard Seed Devotions, or other free resources available through Concordia Publishing (www.cph.org) and Lutheran Hour Ministries (www.lhm.org).

Sunday School News

Pastor, the Elders, and I have decided to cancel the children's Christmas Program for this year and to also cancel Sunday School for the month of December due to COVID outbreaks in the area. With so much uncertainty over attendance, scheduling, and over-all safety, it seems like the best solution is to just take a break during this holiday season. Hopefully by taking this break we can start again in the new year and we will assess the situation and health of the community at that time.  

Thank you,  Lacey Panko

WOW -Women of the Word Bible Study

W.O.W. (Women Of the Word)  Bible Study meets on Tuesday mornings,7:00 AM @ St. Peter Hampton Fellowship Hall. The name of the study is "JOY-A Study of Philippians" by Deb Burma. "Sure, we find joy in our triumphs, but not so much in the trials. Yet real joy, genuine joy, is always ours in the saving grace of Christ Jesus. This close look at St. Paul's Letter to the Philippians unpacks messages of contentment, confidence, humility, and hope-all found in Christ and infused with joy." All women are invited to join us. If you have any questions, contact Kathy Gloystein. (402-416-7753)

Alter Guild

Altar Guild meets quarterly on the first Monday evening of the month and welcomes new members. Please join us if you’re interested in helping prepare the Altar and Sanctuary for worship services each week with Altar Cloths, Banners, Flowers, and Paraments. Our next meeting will be April 6th at 8:00 PM at the Parish Hall. “8 O LORD, I love the habitation of your house and the place where your glory dwells.” (Psalm 26:8):21a)

The Altar Guild encourages the congregation to provide FRESH FLOWERS to celebrate a special occasion (wedding, anniversary, etc.), to honor someone, or to give Thanks & Praise to our heavenly Father. A sign-up Poster is located in the South Hallway of the Narthex. 12 The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land. (Song of Songs 2:12)

Christmas Stocking Project

Please join the LWML in our annual Purple Christmas Stocking Project. The money collected in the stocking will be given to a local family. It has been our goal to give $500 to the chosen family. So just drop coins, bills or checks (made payable to LWML) into one of the purple stockings and help bring JOY to a family's Christmas “34 There was not a needy person among them, for as many…brought the proceeds of what was sold 35 and laid it at the apostles' feet, and it was distributed to each as any had need (Acts 4:34-35).”

Meals for Moms

Meals for Moms (and other families) has been an outreach for the last several years and it has been our joy to help out families in this way. A special thank you to all who have been a part of this! When we are aware of a new baby or other circumstances, we call some of our volunteers and ask for a frozen meal. (We give a two week notice.) Those meals are delivered to the fellowship hall and then we deliver them to the families. If you would like to be a part of this outreach or have any questions, contact Loa Winter (402-694-1777) or Kathy Gloystein (402-416-7753).
