Our worship services are held in the church Sanctuary. Please join us on Sunday mornings at 9:00 am.
Our Worship Services continue to be lived streamed at 9:00 am via FACEBOOK.
Please visit our Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/zionlutheranchurchhuronohio/ to view the service.
Holy Communion will be distributed at the rail. An usher will dismiss you by rows. Please walk down the center aisle to your side of the communion rail. Kneel or stand as you desire. Each table will be blessed prior to returning to pews. After you receive the blessing, return to your seat via the side aisle. A tray to dispose of your empty communion cup is located on the windowsill. Juice and gluten-free options are available upon your request, please be sure to inform your server. Please notify an usher if you need communion brought to your pew. All baptized believers are welcome at God’s table.
HURON HELPING HANDS FOOD PANTRY is always looking for items to fill their shelves and the food is provided to those in need in our community. Much appreciated items include canned fruit, boxed cereal, canned ravioli, canned pasta, canned beef stew, Rice-a-Roni, baking mix, pancake mix, body wash, and shampoo.
SONSHINE PROJECT is Zion’s caring outreach ministry serving those who live in the Rye Beach Complex. Call Shelia Preston 419-602-3298 for updates on the ever-changing needs of this community. Blessings be upon you all.
THE HURON COMMUNITY PRAYER PATH AND LABYRINTH is open year-round from dawn to dusk. It is a special space for prayer, meditation, and reflection in God’s nature and beauty. Please don’t miss an adoption opportunity. There is a sheet in the narthex regarding an adoption of a prayer station at the prayer path. You will have the privilege of keeping one prayer area nice for others to pray and commune with God. It would involve one time every 3 or 4 weeks. The instructions are listed along with the sign-up sheet. Check it out! If you have questions, contact Tom or Shelia Preston 419-433-8504. May you be blessed as we serve together.
Please see the link to the Prayer Path on this website under our RESOURCES tab.
The Prayer Path - HOLY GROUND
The Prayer Path has published a book, Holy Ground, that describes how the Prayer Path and Labyrinth got started, how it came together, the blessings people have received, and lives changed. The books are a fundraiser to help collect money for a replacement tractor. The books would make a wonderful Christmas present and are available for $15.00 in the narthex or see Shelia Preston. Please spread the word!
MEALS ON WHEELS is back to their regular schedule of daily providing meals to our Huron neighbors. They are looking for local drivers, and there is open availability if you can spare a few hours a week.

Please contact Bob Proy, our Huron Meals on Wheels coordinator, at 419-202-2224, to volunteer. Thank you for your help!
