Let us Introduce Ourselves

A Brief History

Mt. Zion Lutheran Church was the first Lutheran Congregation in Richland County, established shorty after the the War of 1812.  Its members have worshipped in log cabins and two sanctuaries on the present site.

We are a people of rich tradition, as well as a diversity of ages, backgrounds, and faiths.  We are a people who welcome new faces and families, and encourage people of all walks of life to live as Christ would have us walk.

We are a member of the largest Protestant church in the world, presently affiliated with the North American Lutheran Church.  The current membership of the congregation is around 110, with an average attendance on Sunday morning around 70.  We worship with a variety of settings, which help to keep our experiences active and our faith alive.

We are glad you came to visit us and hope we can assist you in your faith walk with God.
