Worship Services:

On November 10th our Church Council gave approval to temporarily close the church building and postpone all church activities through November 29th. Now our building is back open to visitors, following proper protocols, but worship services will remain online until further notice. Messages are available anytime on SoundCloud.

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.
