At Zion Lutheran Church we use the words  “Connect,  Grow,  Serve”  to capture the idea of  movement in the journey toward a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.   We may not all start in the same place, or follow the exact same path but we seek to be a community of  Christ followers who encourage one another to Connect to God and one another, Grow in faith and in knowledge of God’s word, and make an impact as we Serve the church and the world personally, locally, nationally, and globally.  

Grow: Some people think the word “disciple” only refers to the original 12 men picked by Jesus but it comes from a Greek word translated first into Latin as disciples.  It means “a learner.”  The strongest catalyst for spiritual growth (discipleship) is to spend time reading and reflecting on Scripture (the Bible).
