The Medina County Food Pantry is beyond words and grateful to the Baptist Health Foundation for their generous grant donation in the amount of $160,000 on December 2019!!!  What a Blessing!

This grant, combined with the current Building fund of $122,000 that consist of donations & support

from thousands of Church members, Volunteers, County residents, County Officals, businesses,

& our trust in God, has made a vision, a reality. Thank you!!!!

Thank You for Your continued support and Volunteering for Zion's Ministries

Our sincere thanks to each person that supports our Ministries at Zion Lutheran. We take each offering and HELPING HAND as a major blessing that leads us closer to reaching God's people.


We have been called by our God to do great things in and around our community and none of it would be possible without the time and effort of each individual. 


Every penny of your tithe will be put to great use for the Glory of God working at ZION Lutheran.  Keep praying daily and thank God for our congregation.


WITHOUT EACH OF YOU... THERE WOULD BE NO CHURCH...TOGETHER WE ARE THE CHURCH.


Stewardship...

While your financial support is much appreciated, there are other ways you can give to the church. We understand that everyone may not be able to give as much as they would like.


If you are looking for ways to give & serve, we have provided a list of several opportunities that may interest you.


Zion supports numerous organizations "in need," and when you help, you are helping others as well.


GOD's Blessings for your continued support
