Christmas 2014
Float in 2014 Groveland Christmas Parade

Our float in the 2014 Parade
Zion Lutheran entered the 23rd annual Groveland Christmas Parade which took place on Saturday December 13. The banner "God Bless Us, Every One" proceeded the folks walking and on the float. The centerpiece of the float was a pipe organ constructed by two members of the congregation. We were very excited to be awarded second place.
After the parade, the church hosted the Gray Middle School choir as part of the Groveland Christmas Stroll.
About half of our church membership participated in one of these events. Join us next year for one of these activities.
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.
