Our purpose here at Zion is to tell people about our Lord Jesus Christ and to share with them His good news. We trust that we are saved only by God's grace in Jesus
Christ our Savior as we learn in God's holy Word.
If you haven't met Him yet, we want to introduce you to our Savior and encourage you to place your trust in Him. He promises joy and peace to all who follow Him.
Whether you are new to the area or a long time resident who does not yet have a church home, we invite you to join us every Sunday morning for the worship of His name.
You are welcome to participate with us in all the blessings of a Christian community. We strive to be a light shining in the darkness, bringing comfort to those who
are hurting and peace to those who have never known it.
About Zion Lutheran Church
Zion Lutheran, affiliated with the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod
, has served Christ and the mid-Valley
community for over one hundred years, since its founding in Corvallis in 1905. We strive to be faithful followers of Christ, honoring His Word and seeking to reflect
His love and grace toward others as we gather together to comfort the found and find the lost.
Our service to the community includes a commitment to faithful, excellent education through our on-campus Zion Lutheran Christian School, providing preschool–8th grade
elementary education. Zion's Early Learning Center has programs for children from 6 weeks old and up.
You'll find us small enough to be friendly and large enough to provide strong community fellowship. We look forward to seeing you next Sunday!
