In-Home Worship

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak we have been offering online worship since March of 2020.  Beginning Sunday, May 24th we will once again hold in-person worship services at Zion.  However, for those who are unable to worship at Zion or are uncomfortable doing so, we will continue to offer online worship for the foreseeable future. 

You can click on the links below for orders of worship as we would normally use in church, and you can play the video of the sermon.  Sermons are also available in audio format (click here) and text format (click here) so that you can listen to or read the corresponding sermon for each service as well.

In addition, while Zion is not currently able to live-stream worship services, many other churches in our fellowship do have that capability.  Click here for a list of WELS churches that offer live-streaming of worship.  

We thank God for his many blessings during this unusual time as always, and in particular we thank God for the blessings of faith, health, family, home, and technology.  May God bless you as you continue to worship him.
