Regarding Holy Communion

The Lord’s Supper is God’s gift of forgiving strength for the faith of the baptized, instructed, and repentant Christian.  It is also an intimate act of fellowship with our God, and with one another.  Therefore it is important that we believe the same Biblical truths.  The Bible calls for those who commune to carefully examine themselves before participating in the meal.  Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 11:28-29, “A man ought to examine himself before he eats of the bread and drinks of the cup.  For anyone who eats and drinks without recognizing the body of the Lord eats and drinks judgment on himself.”  Therefore, please carefully ask yourself the following questions before coming to receive the Lord’s Supper:

· Do I recognize I am a sinner and repent of my sin before God?

· Do I believe Jesus to be my only Savior and Lord from sin, death, and Satan?

· Do I believe the Body and Blood of the Risen Jesus are really present in the Lord’s Supper.

· Do I believe this supper is for me for the forgiveness of my sin?

· Do I harbor any sinful desires for which I am not repentant.

· Do I intend to use Jesus’ forgiveness to change my attitude and actions?

· Do I seek the forgiveness from this meal of grace to dedicate my life to serving Him?

We respectfully ask our Christian guests, who are not Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod members, to refrain from participating with us at this time.  Our pastor would gladly speak with you individually regarding your participation.

Welcome to the official Website of Zion Lutheran Church in Hastings, Nebraska.

In the Old Testament, Zion was another name for the mountain on which the Temple stood, and became synonymous with Jerusalem itself. Thus, Zion is a word used to describe the place where God meets His people.

The same can be said then of our Zion here in Hastings. God comes to meet us here as we gather together around His Word and His means of grace. Through Word and Sacrament, the risen and ascended Jesus Christ is truly present, bringing to us the forgiveness of sins, life, and salvation, which He won for us in His suffering and death on the cross.

Here at Zion we are committed to preaching and teaching the life-giving and life-changing Gospel of Jesus in its truth and purity. That is the heart and core of all our activities here at Zion.

As a Lutheran congregation, and as a member of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, we accept, confess, and teach all the canonical books of the Old and New Testaments of the Bible as the verbally inspired Word of God and the only rule and norm of faith and practice. We furthermore accept all the Official Confessions of the Lutheran Church as contained in the Book of Concord of 1580 as the true and correct exposition of the Doctrines of the Lutheran Church as drawn from the Bible.

Our worship is “cutting edge” as we incorporate such modern techniques as projectors and screens. At the same time our worship is traditional and liturgical, using our hymnal Lutheran Service Book as the basis for our orders of worship and our hymnody.

Worship is held here every Saturday evening at 6:00 p.m. and every Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m. The Lord’s Supper (Holy Communion) is served the first, third, and fifth weekends of every month. Our Sunday morning service is broadcast live on KHAS radio, 1230 on your AM radio dial.

Sunday school and Adult Bible class are held every Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m.

Join us at Zion, where the Triune God comes to meet us in Word and Sacrament.
