Ministry at Zion is continuing and there are still day to day and month to month expenses that need to be met. A weekly commitment to sending in your offering will help to assist us in these challenging times.

Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church, Philipsburg
We are a community of Lutheran believers who can trace the roots of this church back to the 1830s, when seven pioneer families from the Alsace-Lorraine areas of Germany settled here. Founded in 1843, we are members of the Nith Valley Ministry Area in the Eastern Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, and one of the seven original charter Lutheran churches in the area.
In 2018 we celebrated the 175th Anniversary of our Congregation with special events held throughout the year.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, worship services in the church building are currently suspended. Online worship services are posted weekly.
Our Sunday School runs from September to June on various Sundays, during the Worship Service. Sunday School classes are temporarily suspended at this time.
