EASTER SUNDAY - April 1

Easter was no April Fools Day joke .. it was the certainty that Christ arose, conquering sin, death and the power of the devil.  Here is our schedule for that special day.... 

6:00 AM  -  Sunrise Service (Holy Communion)

7:00 AM  -  Easter Breakfast (Free-Will Offering)

8:00 AM  -  Easter Main Celebration Service (Holy Communion)

10:00 AM - Easter Main Celebration Service (Holy Communion)

We encourage you to come early for the Sunrise Service, have Breakfast, and then attend the Main Service ... or have breakfast here and then join us for the Late Service.


WE ARE BACK ON OUR REGULAR WORSHIP SCHEDULE!

We are now back to our FALL-WINTER-SPRING Worship Schedule.  

On Sundays, this is our schedule...

     8:00 AM - Early Worship Service
     9:00 AM - Coffee Hour
     9:30 AM - Sunday School & Bible Classes
   10:30 AM - Late Worship Service
 
Holy Communion is offered on a weekly rotating schedule of Early-Late, Early-Late. (Weeks 1 & 3 of the month communion is in the early service; weeks 2 & 4 it is in the late; in months with 5 Sundays the 5th week is non-communion in both services.)  

.     Thursday worship will resume after Easter (6:30 PM) 


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

SUMMER WORSHIP TIMES:  

Each Lord's Day between Memorial and Labor Day weekends (inclusive) this is our schedule...     
 
       9:00 AM - Worship Service 
     10:00 AM - Coffee Hour Refreshments  
During the summer Holy Communion is offered on the 2nd & 4th Sundays and on the Thursdays preceding those Sundays. 

.

THURSDAY WORSHIP:

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.

.

HOLY COMMUNION:

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.

.

IN CASE OF INCLEMENT WEATHER

This being Wisconsin, the winter months can bring bad weather.  

If the SCHOOL is being closed due to cold or snow, parents will be informed via FastDirect and the various news channels.  

If the school is closed for weather, our CHILDCARE will be closed also as soon as possible.

Cancelling CHURCH SERVICES due to weather is much more rare, but if that happens it will be posted at the top of this page and on Facebook.  More importantly, you are encouraged to make your own decision as to whether you feel safe being out and about ... and we urge you to err on the safe side!

 

Always feel free to call 262-781-8133 to verify specific worship times!

Zion is a member congregation of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod
