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 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. This year, eight youth were confirmed (this is the quick pic without masks)
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 this summer. (see below link to YouTube channel). Please see how we are beginning to relax our COVID-19 practices. We wish to care for the whole community of faith which is made of people who cannot yet get vaccinated (e.g., children under the age of 12), some who choose not to do so, and some for whom the vaccine is less effective (e.g., individuals who are immunocompromised).
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
Almighty and merciful God, we implore you to hear the prayers of your people. Be our strong defense against all harm and danger, that we may live and grow in faith and hope, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
