Pr. Nathan writes: 
Kim and I are excited to be with you to celebrate Zion’s 100th Anniversary!  We came to Zion 40 years ago in 1982 and had the privilege of serving with Pastor Ron Onnen, Dorothy Stenberg, Kathy Warmbier, and many other faithful staff and volunteers.  Zion and the Litchfield community will always hold a very special place in our hearts and lives.  Continue reading his greeting.

Centennial Mission Projects

We will continue to collect gifts throughout the year for the following projects:

In Tanzania:       Medical training scholarships for young women

Centennial Zion Projects

Zion Organ Fund. Zion’s pipe organ is in need of maintenance and repair. It will cost approximately $15,000.

Zion Carpet Fund.  The carpeting throughout our church is aging. Replacing it can be done in sections. The entire project will cost $75,000.00.

Mortgage Reduction. There are four years left on the Crossroad addition mortgage. Contributions to this fund would shorten this time, expanding Zion’s capacity for other mission funding.

Centennial Expenses Fund. For expenses incurred in Centennial events.  Any excess will go to other Centennial projects.

 

Perhaps you would like to donate to one of these projects in honor or memory of a loved one. Checks should be written to Zion Lutheran Church with a notation about the project you wish to support. You may also donate to the Centennial funds electronically.  Click Here to contribute to a Centennial Project.
