Pastor Ingrid’s Installation

Pastor Ingrid will be installed as pastor of Zion on Sunday, January 13th at 10:30 AM. 

Note: There will be no 8:00 AM service on that day.  Pastor Bruce Davidson will preach and Bishop Tracie Bartholomew will preside at the Rite of Installation. Let’s turnout to celebrate this milestone in the life of Zion!  More details to come in the January LVL newsletter.

Pageant Thanks

We thank all those who worked so hard to make the Annual Christmas Pageant a success, especially Marge Scudese. If you have pictures, please send them in to Laura in the office so we can get them up on Facebook and in the January newsletter.

On November 18th we said good-bye to Pastor Dan Schroeder, our Interim Pastor for the last two years. In that time period he has had a big impact on the life of our congregation, and will be remembered for his steadfastness, kindness and patience. He navigated the congregation through some challenging times and leaves us at the door to a bright future with Pastor Ingrid Wengert.

Thank you, Farewell and Godspeed

Pastor Dan!


For the time being, and until she better knows the patterns and needs of the congregation, her office hours will be Mondays, 2PM – 5PM , ( Monday morning is the pastor’s Bible study in Sparta); Tuesday – Thursday, 9AM – 12PM, and 2PM – 5PM. However, she will be using these hours and also evenings to make visits, not only to parishioners, but also to meet people in Long Valley, such as the Police & Fire Chiefs, Superintendents, local stores and other clergy. She would hate for somebody to want to talk but find her out of the office! So, if you want to make sure to see her, please call or email her to set up an office visit. Her cell phone number is (215) 692-2091, please feel free to use it to call or text her (if texting – make sure to identify yourself the first time).
