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.

Orchard Assistance  - Your help is needed in the apple orchard to keep the apples picked up that fall to the ground and to thin apples on the trees so the branches don't break. We will also need help in the fall to pick the apples. For more information, see the sign-up sheet in the
narthex or call Vicki Anderson at 879-4970.
Sewing Needed - Your help is needed to sew items for God's Work Our Hands. Items that need to be sewn are  pillowcase sundresses, diapers, back packs, ditty bags and boy’s shorts. Kits are available in a laundry basket in the choir room. Contact Ruth Jorgenson at 384-4202  or Vicki Anderson at 879-4970 with questions.  This is simple  and fun sewing.  Anybody can do it!   Even if you feel you can't, perhaps you know someone who sews who might enjoy helping out with these worthwhile tasks even if they aren't members of Zion.
Lawn Mowing - We are so blessed to have a beautiful church setting, but  it needs to be taken care of in the summer! Many volunteers are needed throughout the summer to mow Zion’s lawn.  Gas and mowers are provided.
