Greetings in our risen Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! It is finally time to begin gathering back together in the Lord’s House, thanks be to God! We pray for your patience as we start this process and figure out what this time of transition will look like.
Beginning on Sunday, May 10th, we will have time slots in order to limit the number of people here at one time and be able to safely social distance during the services.

Pastor of Zion Decatur Church
Worship is a vital part of the life of Zion Lutheran Church. It is a time to be strengthened in our faith by hearing God’s Word and by receiving the Lord’s Supper. At Zion we gather weekly around the Lord’s Word and Sacraments to be forgiven, encouraged and sent back into the rest of our week with His peace.
8:00 & 10:30 am: Traditional Worship
The traditional service is used each week as we celebrate the Divine Service (God serving us). Here we gather and use one of the Divine Service Settings from the Lutheran Service Book (LSB). Our worship includes music from numerous volunteers and musicians. From organ music, to piano and choir pieces each week. Come join us!
Communion is celebrated at:
8:00 am on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Sundays of each month, and
10:30 am on the 2nd, 4th, and 5th Sundays of each month
