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 one service 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 VBS 2022

Stewardship 2023


“One gives freely yet grows all the richer…Whoever brings blessings will be enriched, and one who waters will be watered”…Proverbs 11:24,25

Zion is fully back in the swing of min-istries! We have resumed regular activities  and are adding new ones.

We are asking parishioners to increase giving by a small amount for 2023 so that we can meet our ministries’ expenses.
