Marysville Church

Each summer (June-August) Zion offers members and friends the opportunity to worship at our historic Marysville church.

Monday Evening Worship at Marysville

Summer is the right time to enjoy the fresh air of the historic Marysville church as you hear pastors preach about faith-filled life lessons and sing the old favorite hymns.

This beautiful historic country church is located among farmland on County Road 9 between Buffalo and Waverly. The worship service begins at 7pm each Monday evening in June, July, and August, with communion on the first Monday of each month.

An old fashioned ice cream social is held at Marysville each summer.

Just a reminder… this is a little country church, with no modern amenities.

In 1973 the building was restored to celebrate the centennial of Swedesburg, and Monday evening summer services commenced at that time.
