Zion Lutheran Church Groveland FL
Zion Celebrates 95 years in Groveland
Zion's Ninety-Fifth Anniversary is coming up on May 18, 2014. There will be a church service at 11 AM and the guest preacher will be our present Bishop of the Florida/Bahamas Synod, the Reverend Robert G Schaefer.
During its 95 years Zion helped establish Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in Leesburg, Frist Lutheran in Clermont, now called Shepherd of the Hills, and St. Philip Lutheran Church in Mt. Dora. Camp Emanuel, also know as the "Bible Camp" was founded by this active church. Some of the original buildings are still standing on Bible Camp Road in Groveland. Members of this church were also active in the formationof The Florida Lutheran Retirement Center in Deland, Florida.
Easter at Zion 2014

Three Crosses at Zion. Each with a different meaning, but all meaning the same.
During the Good Friday Sermon, worshipers drive nails into the wood cross, now seen behind the pulpit to remind us of how Christ suffered and died for us. On the left is the flower cross decorated on Easter Sunday with fresh flowers. HE IS RISEN! HE IS RISEN INDEED! is heard throughout the church.
The center cross was made by one of our members. He makes small crosses that are given to each first time visitor.

Summer Activities 2013

Principal and Guidence Counselor Accepting Backpacks Prepared at Zion Lutheran Church
This summer in addition to quilting activities, volunteers purchased supplies for back packs for Mascotte Elementary school. The back packs were blessed at a church service on August 11, 2013, and delivered to Mascotte Elementary School on August 14.

Funds to purchase the supplies were provided by Lake-Sumter County of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans.

We thank the many vounteers who participated in the quilting and back pack project this summer.

This fall we will continue quilting, preparing back packs for Lutheran World Relief, and making health kits for Lutheran World Relief.

There are multiple opportunities to still participate in these projects with funding for the supplies from Lake-Sumter Thrivent Financial fo Lutherans. Please ask anyone from the Ladies Group how you might get involved.
