REGULAR SUNDAY WORSHIP:
We are now on our SUMMER Sunday Schedule...
9:00 AM - Worship Service
10:00 AM - Fellowship and Refreshments
[During the FALL-WINTER-SPRING period we have two Sunday worship services, at 8:00 and 10:30 AM, with Sunday School and refreshments in between. Year-round we have a 6:30 PM Thursday service (Wednesdays during Advent and Lent)]
Thursday services start at 6:30 PM and are held year-round EXCEPT during Advent and Lent (when they are moved to Wednesday evenings). While still traditional, this service is a little more casual than Sundays. If communion is offered at the upcoming EARLY Sunday service, it will also be offered at the Thursday service.
During the Fall/Winter/Spring schedule, Holy Communion is offered EACH WEEK on a rotating "early/late" schedule. Weeks 1 & 3 of the month it is at the early service; weeks 2 & 4 it is offered at the late service; when there is a 5th Sunday it is always non-communion. Thursdays correspond to the following Sunday early service. During the Summer schedule it is weeks 2 & 4 (and the Thursdays preceding them).
Communion Practice: Here at Zion we do follow what is called "close" or "closed" communion; in practice this means that members of church bodies other than the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod (LCMS) are asked to speak to the Pastor or an Elder prior to communing for the first time. The wine is offered with both the common and individual cups.
Always feel free to call 262-781-8133262-781-8133 to verify specific worship times!
Zion is a member congregation of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod
