Opportunities to Offer Care: The Zion family is one whose care extends far beyond church walls. From the Union Gospel Mission in Duluth to the local foodshelf, from the Lutheran Social Services to disaster relief halfway around the world, Zion's presence is made through the financial gifts of its members and friends.


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.
Zion Lutheran's Chapel

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.

Youth Rummage Sale May 12 – 13, 2017 - Our Youth Rummage Sale is drawing near! Once again, this will be a fundraiser for our youth who will be participating in upcoming summer trips, including our 2017 Mission Trip to Chicago and the 2018 ELCA Youth Gathering in Houston, TX! Please bring items that you would like to donate to the Rummage Sale to the Zion Social Hall May 8-11 (please do not bring items prior to that date, as New Wine Coffee House is taking place the weekend prior!) We accept clothing, furniture, games, toys, kitchen items, and books. We will not accept electronics, dirty or broken items, and anything that is not in useable condition – we ask that you use discretion when bringing things to donate.

Community Garden Open House – Thursday, May 11 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. Healthy refreshments will be served. Come and see the garden, pick out your garden plot and receive a pack of free seeds. Everyone is welcome!

Baby Care Kits – Rummage sale season has begun. Be on the lookout for new or gently used baby/toddler clothing for our Baby Care Kits. We collect blankets (up to 52-inch square) and sizes 6 to 24 months, shirts, sleepers, pants, sweaters, socks, and hats. Also, we collect cloth diapers, flannel sheets, and boys shorts any size.
