JESSICA PRACHTSecretary for Zion Church and School
Gods blessings to you! I have been part of Zion Lutheran Church since January 2014 and started working for the Church & School in August 2014. I have been so blessed to be part of a great group of individuals to work together as church and school. A little bit about myself – I was born and raised right here in Hastings. My daughter Jordyn has attended ZLS since she was 3 years old starting with Preschool. Some of my hobbies are biking, painting and spending as much time with my family and friends.
