We are now on our FALL-WINTER-SPRING Sunday Worship Schedule.Each Lord's Day this is our schedule...8:00 AM - Early Worship Service9:00 AM - Coffee Hour9:30 AM - Sunday School & Bible Classes10:30 AM - Late Worship Service
Holy Communion is offered on a weekly rotating schedule of Early-Late, Early- Late.
SUMMER WORSHIP TIMES:
Sundays - 9:00 AM (Refreshments afterwards)
Thursdays - 6:30 PM
Our summer schedule goes from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend (inclusive).
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.
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.
Cancelling CHURCH SERVICES due to weather is much more rare, but if that happens it will be posted at the top of this page. 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
