Women of Zion

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.

Coming Home Women's Spring Brunch

Whether you're a frequent flyer, a road trip driver, a hiker with tent & backpack, or a cabin person for weekends and summers, this year's women's brunch needs to be your destination. No need to check with AAA for travel details: the women's ministry planning committee has great things in store for the brunch on Saturday, May 4, starting with a visit from guest speaker Marge Lundeen. 

One of our favorite speakers, Marge will bring stories from her travels as only Marge can do.

Even on our most perfect trips, it's always good to be home again. Marge's travel stories will make you laugh, and she will encourage you to think about what it means to have a spiritual home and an eternal home. 

Guest musicians for the morning will be the County Choristers, a women's ensemble from the Wright County Chamber Chorus. They are preparing a trip of their own to Ireland this summer and were privileged to have Marge as a fellow traveler on a previous trip to Prague, Vienna and Salzburg.

Adding to the morning will be a delicious meal prepared by Julie Kabe and the Community Bible Study crew and served by "Lois' men," the wonderful group of Zion volunteers. 

This event will start at 9:30am in Trinity Hall and cost is $12/adults and $4/12 years and younger. If you have a group of 6 or more, sign up together by April 22 and we'll reserve a table for you. 

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
