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.



Harvest Bazaar - Thank you to everyone who set-up, baked, worked, ate, shopped,
donated the many wonderful items sold, etc. We greatly appreciate your hard work and could not have done it without you!
Transition Team Nominations - Zion Church Council will appoint a transition team in
December. The congregation is encouraged to nominate individuals for this team. Forms are in the office and narthex and are to be returned to the church office by December 1.
Best Christmas Ever - Best Christmas Ever (BCE) is a group of friends and local
businesses that came together in 2011 to help just 1 family in a major way by giving them the Best Christmas Ever! A typical "Best Christmas Ever" is a surprise delivery of car loads of gifts that are collected and raised specifically for a family based on their specific needs and desires, making it literally the Best Christmas Ever! Families have no idea that they are receiving this gift until it arrives. Do you know a family in need? You can
nominate them by going to

Olive Oil - The youth who will be attending the 2018 Youth Gathering are selling olive oil from the Holy Land to raise funds for their trip! Cost is $12 for a 8.5 oz bottle or $28 for a 25 oz bottle. Orders can be placed with any Youth Gathering student,  through Laura after worship or in Zion’s office 8:00 a.m. to noon.

We will meet November 5, 12, and 19 from 4:00-6:00 p.m. During these three weeks, we will continue to work through our Bible Song curriculum, as well as begin preparing for the Christmas Pageant, which will take place during the 9:30 a.m. worship service on December 10th. All are welcome - please join us! 
 God’s Work Our Hands Donations – It’s RIP, SEW and ROLL time. Thanks to
everyone who continues to donate for GWOH missions. At this time, we are running out of space to store items, so please keep collecting items when you find "good deals", but keep them at home until our next assembly date.  We have a lot of flannel sheets for
diapers, white sheets for bandages, and upholstery fabric for back packs and ditty bags, so hold off on collecting those items until further notice.  What we need right now is people to rip sheets, roll bandages, sew diapers, sew Haiti sundresses, Haiti boy’s short, back packs and ditty bags.  Contact: Ruth Jorgenson or Vicki Anderson if questions.
Duluth Superior Symphony - November 18 at 7 p.m. The Duluth Superior Symphony will perform Mendelssohn's Symphony No.5 (the Reformation Symphony) and a Brahms Requiem, featuring Biblical texts from the Luther Bible. Call Vicki Anderson for
information and carpooling, or Google DSSO, Duluth for additional information.
Pandowdy for Sale -  Frozen Blueberry, Rhubarb and Apple Pandowdy (single crust pie) for sale. They are only $10.00 each.  They keep beautifully in the freezer for at least a year. They are great to purchase for holiday desserts, emergency sugar craving, gifts for relatives that have everything, and they make a lovely hostess gift. Your help selling to friends and relatives is appreciated. Proceeds this year will go the organ maintenance fund.


Table Conversations with Pastor Loren - Pastor Loren wants to get to know the people at Zion and is scheduling times to meet with groups of 7 – 10 people.  This not only helps him get acquainted, but helps him understand some of Zion’s history and strengths.  These groups are scheduled for a variety of times and Pastor Loren hopes many of the folks at Zion will be able to participate in one of them.  Sign-up sheets for these small groups are in the church narthex.  The groups will meet in the church lounge.   Below is a list of the times for these “Table Conversations.” 





Nov. 12 – 2:00 PM
