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.
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
We worship in-person and virtually at 9am (see below link to YouTube channel). Please see our guidelines (e.g., mask-wearing, etc…) The opportunity to have in-person worship should not be interpreted to mean that your congregation leaders have decided that it is safe for all. Please use your best judgment based on health, risks and circumstances to decide whether attending in person is a wise choice for you and a loving action for your neighbor.
Virtual worship via Zion’s YouTube channel. 9AM live-stream. You might check the “Sundays, Holy Week & Festivals” playlist as it first appears there if after worship
O God, you give us your Son as the vine apart from whom we cannot live. Nourish our life in his resurrection, that we may bear the fruit of love and know the fullness of your joy, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
