Zion Lutheran Church is an open community of faith where all are invited to worship, learn, grow, care and be cared for. Visitors are welcome to participate in any and all opportunities Zion has to offer.
ZLC's purpose is to humbly
and boldly commit our hearts
and minds to follow the Lord
by following these five guiding
principles: Jesus is Lord, Be
open to the spirit, Invite and
welcome all, Follow Christ
through worship, prayer,
and study, and Serve others.

Easter Brunch - Thank you to everyone who came and supported Zion's youth at the Easter Breakfast last week! It was a wonderful morning of fellowship & delicious food. Special thanks to David Johnson for his willingness to coordinate the breakfast and help the youth in their fundraising efforts!
Administrative Professionals Day, April 26: The flowers on the altar this morning are in honor of our delightful Office Manager, Janice Laurie. She makes her job look effortless, and is the glue that keeps Zion held together. Thank you, Janice, for putting your heart into all you do, all the while with a smile on your face!
Walk for Water - We will be joining several other
churches in the area for a Walk for Water on Sunday, April 30th. There
will be a lunch for everyone served at Zion at 11:30. Then those who are
walking will leave together for Spafford Park near the St. Louis River and
bring jugs of water back to Zion. If you prefer, you may come to the Park
and just walk one way. Sign-up forms are available on a table in the
narthex. Please register by April 24. The Hunger and Justice Ministry has
set a fundraising goal of $2500 for our "Walk for Water" project. This
will enable a village to have a new well. Our noisy offering from SNAZ-E
and our Lenten services has brought in $1,175.
Zioneers Event - Today at 4 p.m. beginning with a potluck. “The State of the Hospital” presentation by Rick Breuer - Cloquet Memorial Hospital CEO will follow.
New Wine Coffee House - New Wine presents Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Thursday - Friday, May 4 - 6 at 7:00 p.m., Sunday, May 7 at 2:00. $10 ~ Tickets may be purchased in the narthex following worship, from any New Wine member or in Zion’s office, Monday - Friday 8:00 to noon.
