Guidelines for Worship

Dear Members of Zion Lutheran Church, Chamberlain: 

The Council of Zion Lutheran Church, Chamberlain, is happy to announce that our church doors will reopen for Services beginning the weekend of May 24. This includes the 7:00 Saturday evening Service on the 23rd and the 9:00 Sunday morning Service on the 24th. In order that we might further serve our congregation and make this a blessed occasion, the Council has put together some recommendations as we begin meeting again. Thank you for your dedication, love, and patience during this time. If you have any questions you may contact Pastor or Chisum Peterson. The Peace of the Lord be with you!
