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
On Sundays, 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: Live-streamed Sundays at 9am via YouTube, or look at “Sunday worship” playlist on our YouTube channel to worship at anytime
Stir up your power, Lord Christ, and come. By your merciful protection awaken us to the threatening dangers of our sins, and keep us blameless until the coming of your new day, for you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
