General note

Zion Lutheran Church was organized December 28, 1890 and became affiliated with the Lutheran Synod of Ohio, with a group of German immigrants as its nucleus. Rev. Paul Groschupf, a circuit riding Lutheran missionary, preached the first sermon in the church building. Rev. T. A. Schoenberg, a Field Missionary, came in 1912 and reorganized the church and began offering services in English. In 1912 the congregation became affiliated with the Pacific Synod of the United Lutheran Church. In 1924 a partly finished Sunday School room, kitchen, and furnace were added. The first church was located on M. Avenue. The dedication of a fellowship annex was held June 20, 1925.The first parsonage was purchased in 1923. The Zion congregation purchased land and dedicated the new church June 20, 1954, with a parish hall and Sunday School area being completed and dedicated in 1967.
