On June 1, 1872, sixteen families of the Lutheran faith bonded together to organize Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church in Wayne Township, Jones County, Iowa. The first House of Worship was a single 28′ x 48′ structure dedicated in December 1873.

On November 26, 1964, the ground was broken for the current stone church with educational and social facilities. Dedication services were held on March 27, 1966.
