Welcome to Zion


Zion Lutheran Church has been sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ in the heart of Long Valley, New Jersey since 1760. Zion is a small, vibrant and caring congregation that warmly welcomes visitors.

Join us for Sunday worship


We gather for worship at 8AM and 10:30AM during the school year and at 9AM from Memorial Day – Labor Day.  We also live-stream 10:30AM (or 9AM in summer) via our YouTube channel.


We celebrate Confirmation on Pentecost Sunday – the festival of the Holy Spirit – as we pray for the Spirit to confirm all of the gifts promised in Baptism.  In 2022, three youth were confirmed.

We care about children and youth

We like to say that youth aren’t the future of the church, they are our present. Pictured (from 2019): Sunday School mission project – making care boxes to be sent to college students

Vacation Bible School: July 18-22

We look forward to learning and sharing how Jesus pulls us through life

The Rocky Railway ran Monday through Friday from 9am to 12pm. 

Sunday worship

In the summer, from Memorial Day through Labor Day, we worship at 9:00AM. On the fourth Sunday in June, July & August, we worship in the outdoor, Hoehn Chapel, weather permitting. The service is also live-streamed (see below link to YouTube channel).

Virtual worship via Zion’s YouTube channel.  After live worship, you will find the recording in the YouTube playlist “Sundays, Holy Week & Festivals” playlist as it first appears thereafter worship

Weekly prayer

Benevolent God, you are the source, the guide, and the goal of our lives. Teach us to love what is worth loving, to reject what is offensive to you, and to treasure what is precious in your sight, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
