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.

Sorry I did not include this on the first update:

Financially, while I hate having to mention it, the reality of it all is that the church still has bills to pay. Even though we are not meeting as normal, your tithes and offerings are critical for keeping the church going. If you are able, it would be wonderful if you would send in your offering. The church’s address is:

What does this mean for Holy Week and Easter. Unlike what some think, Easter is not cancelled. 2000 years ago, people tried to cancel Easter and that did not happen. We are a people of Easter, that is what we celebrate each and every week…dare say each and every day. Our baptism is a baptism into Christs death, in which our Old Adam dies with Christ’s crucifixion but then we are raised in Christ’s resurrection, made new. Each day of our lives is putting to death the Old sinful self and being renewed in the resurrection. Praise be to God!

I am watching the weather for Easter Sunday. I have some thoughts about Easter Sunday. One thought is that we can have a parking lot service. That is, hold Easter service outside while you all stay in your cars. I am not sure if that will work being I am not sure if we have the equipment to make it happen well. It is just a thought, I will make a decision sometime next week. Regardless, the church will have the smell of flowers as we are keeping out order and we will deliver your flowers, putting them on the porch maintaining our social distancing. However, when this is all over and we are able to meet like we normally do, our first Sunday together will be an Easter Service!

COVID-19 Church Update

It looks like we will not be meeting for a few more weeks like we normally do based on the president’s guidelines.  That is, officially Sunday Worship services will be suspended.   However, on Sunday I will be at the church recording our readings and message at 10:30.  If you would like to come and hear in person, the doors will be open as they have been the last few weeks.  The message and service will be put on the website.  If we get brave enough, we may live stream it as well on our church Facebook page.
