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’ll gather in the outdoor chapel the 1st & 3rd Sundays (weather permitting) and in the sanctuary the other Sundays at 9AM.  We also live-stream worship via our YouTube channel no matter where we worship in person.


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

Sunday worship

This autumn, we worship in-person and virtually at 8am and in-person at 10:30AM.  (see below link to YouTube channel).  We wish to care for the whole community of faith and so are following CDC guidelines to mask indoors when the level of community transmission is high

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

Bulletins for the season and insert for this coming Sunday’s worship. Posted Fridays.

Please enroll your child/ren in Sunday school for the 2021-2022 year.  We hold classes for 3 year-olds through 8th grade.    In order to keep everyone safe, we’ll follow  public school protocols including masks for teachers and youth and social distancing.

Weekly prayer

O God, our teacher and guide, you draw us to yourself and welcome us as beloved children. Help us to lay aside all envy and selfish ambition, that we may walk in your ways of wisdom and understanding as servants of your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.  Amen.
