There is a place for you here. We are the church that shares a living, daring confidence in God's grace. Liberated by our faith, we embrace you as a whole person — questions, complexities and all. Join us as we do God's work in Christ's name for the life of the world.


In light of COVID-19 cases reported in Cumberland County, we have decided to CANCEL ALL ACTIVITIES AT ZION EXCEPT WORSHIP SERVICE EACH SUNDAY AT 9:30 AM. The office is open intermittently when staff finds it necessary to work at the church; if you need anything, feel free to contact Pastor Gwenn Trout directly at 717-564-1034 (home) or 717-602-9913 (cell).

During this period of time as we refrain from group gatherings, we encourage you to:

  • Pray for all of those affected by this pandemic.
  • Check on family members, friends and neighbors.
  • Consider providing meals for school children or others who might be in need.
  • Provide child care for those who must work.
  • Support local businesses, perhaps by purchasing gift cards that can be used later.
  • Consider contributing financially to organizations who are helping those in need, as their resources will be stretched during this time of crisis.
  • Continue to support Zion financially through Simply Giving, or by mailing or dropping off your offerings to the church.

What Does it Mean to be Lutheran?

Lutherans are people who have faith in God's Word.  We see Jesus Christ as the word of God made flesh.  God's Word to us is truth, life, forgiveness, guidance, hope and love.  We hear God's Word in worship, study of scripture, preaching, individual contact and in our congregation's ministries of caring.  God's Word is a firm base for our lives because God is trustworthy.

Lutherans are Baptized.  Baptism is our entrance into God's family, the Church.  In Baptism God acts to forgive our sins and offers us assurance of God's love.  Whether infants or adults, baptized people grow in faith, always certain of God's never-ending love.

Lutherans receive the Lord's Supper.  Holy Communion, the Lord's Supper, is the receiving of bread and wine with the Word of God.  Receiving Christ's body and blood brings forgiveness of sins, strengthens our faith, and reminds us of Jesus' life, death, resurrection and promise to come again.

Lutherans live in the world.  We are God's people everywhere, all the time. We see faith lived out in our daily lives at home, at work, at play, and in the community.
