About Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church

We Live, We Love,
We Serve

As members of Zion Lutheran Church, we are called by the Gospel, gathered as a congregation and moved by the Holy Spirit.  Therefore we will seek to live the love of God, iisten through prayer, and share our Christian faith with others in our daily lives.

We serve our community with outreach programs, feeding the hungry and serving the people that are closest to us by holding regular events that help to feed the hungry and clothe them with blankets, winter coats, boots and feed them spiritually with the word of God.

Our Beliefs

Our purpose is to share resources and opportunities for mission and ministry.  To grow disciples of Jesus Christ. To discern a shared vision for God’s mission in the Lebanon area, and to share the good news of God’s love in Jesus Christ with our community and with the world.

Zion has a dedicated choir that praises Our Lord and inspires the congregation. Our music program inspires and brings joy to everyone who walks in the door. We also rent our space to the Lebanon Barbershop Chorus, who also regularly fills our halls with the sound of music.
