A Message from
Pastor Pranschke

Dear Friends in Christ,

I hope you have heard by now, "You are always welcome at Zion." It is sort of our "slogan", but it is so much more than that. Let me explain.

Our world is fast paced, often filled with various traumas, and uncertainty. In light of this we may often feel overwhelmed and unloved. Whereas this is certainly a real feeling, it is NOT a fact. We are not unloved, we are loved by the One who sent His own Son, Jesus, the Christ, into this world to be our salvation. By His death on the cross Jesus defeated the power of sin in our lives, and through His glorious resurrection, has opened the Kingdom of Heaven to all who believe. This is our promise. As Zion we seek to share this wonderful message with everyone. We do this in several ways.

  • We partake of the Blessed Sacrament of Holy Communion every Sunday as food for our souls. When you are here you are part of this "Holy Communion".
     
  • People like to see you! When you are here you boost someone's spirits, whether you know it or not. You make a difference.
     
  • When you involve yourself in any of our ministries you are active in obeying Christ's command to serve those in need and in building up the Body of Christ.

Zion is also well known in our community. When you identify yourself as a Zion member you are letting people know there are people who care about our community and them. Our members have a good time being with each other at our various activities; organized, or informal. 

Jesus promises us. "Behold, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Jesus always welcomes you. You are always welcome at Zion because Jesus is who we are all abour.

In Christ,
Pastor T.J. Pranschke

Recently we hosted thirteen Valporaiso University students from Friday night at 9pm through 7am on Saturday. They were finishing up an east coast tour and the church that originally was going to host their last night out east had to cancel.

The singing group is called, "Sweetwine". They were very thankful and I recorded them performing one of their songs.

They slept well and we fed them breakfast and prayed for their safe return home.

They made it, I am happy to say! Thank you for sharing your gift of music with us. We hope to see you again.

You will see a young man coming down the stairs again and again, four times in all. No, it is not a loop. It is evidence that much remains the same even today. He was just a young man fascinated by the latest technology at the time.

Neighborhood Outreach

A group of the elders from the church, headed by Pastor Pranschke, took to the neighborhood to hang invitational letters and prayer cards on the doors of those that live close to us. 

A good time was had by all and the packages were delivered to over 200 homes.
