Milwaukee Handbell Ensemble Concert Sunday June 2, 2019 3 pm
This will be a fun-filled, family-friendly concert of sacred and secular music: arrangements of wonderful hymns, concert transcriptions, original music, plus popular arrangements like Friends, Popcorn, and Footloose. You won’t believe the incredible sounds that this handbell choir can produce. They have performed six times with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra. This concert is one of the last for founding director, Dr. John Behnke, who will be retiring after 16 years at the helm. Dr. Behnke was the guest organist for the Hymn Festival in April 2015. Don’t miss this unique and remarkable ensemble! A reception will follow the concert.
Mercy Days: Community Days of Prayer, May 27-29
Come to 30-minute prayer services at 12:15 p.m. in Zion’s chapel May 27, 28, and 29 to pray for God’s ministry and church as well as our homes, neighborhoods, and nation!
During the season of Easter, the church sets aside three days to pray for this promised mercy. They are the three days before Ascension (May 30 this year). Offering up prayer on these days, we join millions of Christians who have observed this practice throughout history.
Prayer boxes for collecting prayer requests will be located by all of Zion’s entrances. Please stuff them full with prayer requests; they will be offered in prayer on one of the three days.
May 27: for Church and Mission
May 28: for Nation and Neighbors
May 29: for Personal Requests
As always, your presence is important. Praying together bears witness to the Holy Spirit at work among us.
During the Easter season, Pr. Gjerde will post a video every Wednesday to its Facebook page telling the story of a saint in history who set an example of mercy. You may also view the video on our Video Bible Study page.

The congregation of Zion welcomes you to this website. You can find a video about our congregation on the Worship page, and at the bottom of this page there is information about worship times and how to contact us.
Jesus is the center of Zion’s life. He is risen from the dead, and He is on a mission: to make disciples of all nations. A disciple is someone who learns from a teacher and follows in his way. Zion is a gathering of Jesus’ disciples.
That’s why mercy is a key word at Zion, and worship is our core activity. Jesus lives to show mercy to sinners as He meets and nourishes them at worship. That mercy sends us back to our homes and neighborhoods with a new life to live.
We invite you to receive and grow in that new life at Zion.
