Zion as a church body was established in 1853 and moved to its current location in 1954. Zion is part of the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC) denomination (see below).
Zion is a relational church that loves and cares for one another and lives in a community that belongs to Jesus Christ. We are devoted to communicating God's love to the lost, connecting people to Jesus, and to contributing our Spirit-given talents to further the Kingdom of God. We have a sincere yearning to become who God calls us to be in this place and time, and we rely completely on His provision and direction as we put our hope and trust in Him. Finally, we strive to continue in the mission of the church—to carry out both the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:36-40) and the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20) to the best of our human ability, with God’s help.
We offer a blended worship gathering on Sunday mornings, weekly Christian formation classes, Bible studies, children's ministries, outreach events, and lots of other fellowship opportunities.
History of ECC:
The Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC) was founded by Swedish immigrants in 1885. Known originally as Mission Friends, the ECC has its roots in historical Christianity as it emerged in the Protestant Reformation, in the biblical instruction of the Lutheran State Church of Sweden, and in the great spiritual awakenings of the nineteenth century. Today the ECC is one of the fastest growing denominations in the United States and Canada and is one of North America’s most diverse churches, with more than twenty percent of its congregations classified as ethnic or multi-ethnic. The ECC experiences the strength that comes from diversity.
