A Community of Women created in the image of God, called to discipleship in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit.

The Women of Zion organization is striving to be relevant to the lives of a wide spectrum of Zion Women within the framework of the Purpose Statement of the Women of the ELCA. We commit ourselves to grow in faith, affirm our gifts, support one another in our callings, engage in ministry and action, and promote healing and wholeness in the church, the society, and the world.

Women's Retreat

Women's Event

a True Getaway in January '19!

Zion is hosting a mid-winter retreat at Luther Crest Bible Camp near Alexandria on January 25-26. The Zion Women's Ministry planning team and the Thursday Wine, Women and the Word group have both talked about planning an overnight retreat and the time has come to reserve spots at Luther Crest, a great location that's an easy 2 hour drive north on I-94. 

Guest presenter/musician is Rachel Kurtz, Minneapolis singer/songwriter who has appeared at many ELCA Youth Gatherings. The retreat will be a time to relax with friends, enjoy the comfort of the camp, and reflect on God's word in a quiet winter setting. Join Pastor Suzi and Sherilyn for the weekend. We'll be back by Saturday evening, ready for Sunday morning worship at Zion. Carpooling available. 

It's a great gift to give a friend, sister, daughter who has been living from a busy calendar during the holiday season! Gift certificates will be available in early December in the Zion office. 

We have 30 spots reserved for you. Cost will be in the range of $75-90, depending on number of meals you enjoy at the camp. 

Women of the ELCA

WELCAThe cross, water and white lily identifies the Women of The Evangelical Lutheran Church (WELCA) as children of God; baptized, forgiven and adopted into God’s family, full of grace and hope in eternal life.It is a reminder of the growth, beauty, and vitality that rises out of that life-giving baptismal water.It is also a reminder of the mission of the church.

Go, therefore, make disciples of all nations; baptize them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Matthew 29:19
