Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church


Zion has been blessed with many wonderful ministries, events, and groups. 

Each of our ministries is a valuable part of one of six teams.  This better organizes their work and invites participation.  The teams are Worship, Spiritual Growth, Outreach and Ministries, Congregational Life, Facilities, and Financial. 

Together, these six teams embody, support, and represent the work of our church.

You are welcome to serve on any of these teams.  Contact our Church office by phone: 330-483-3873 or email: office@zionvc.org for more information.
