We believe that Jesus Christ has called us to be one with Him and with one another. Because He has taken our sins upon Himself and died upon the cross, He has taken our sins away from us, as far as the east is from the west. We are called to share that good news with others, both locally and throughout the world. We are called to serve one another in love. All that we do is for Jesus. We would be honored to have you join us as we worship Him.
Worship at Mt. Zion is in the "blended" style, a pleasing and thoughtful combination of organ-based traditional hymns, instrumental pieces, and choir anthems, along with selections from Christian contemporary pop/rock, world music, gospel and jazz. Our sanctuary houses a finely expressive Berghaus pipe organ, which is always heard is part of our worship, and is useful in leading hymns and joyful congregational participation in components of the Lutheran liturgy each Sunday. Grand piano and a Yamaha Clavinova also lead congregational song, according to musical style. Our handbell quartet graces our worship monthly, as does our small choir. Ensemble rehearsals are more intensive during Advent and Lent leading up to Christmas and Easter. Talented vocalists often are featured as well. You are invited to join your talents with ours!
