Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church, Philipsburg
Special Notice: In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, we have suspended all worship and church activities in the church building until further notice.
Audio postings of a worship service by Pastor Leanne will be added weekly.
Please continue to be vigilant in your prayerful support of those who are ill and those who are most fully engaged in the public health efforts that are underway across the country and around the world.
May God grant us generous gifts of courage, faith, and compassion.
During the pandemic, 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.

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.
Worship services are held Sunday mornings at 10:30am.
Communion services are listed on the calendar.
Our Sunday School runs from September to June on various Sundays, during the Worship Service. Please refer to the calendar for specific dates. All ages are welcome!
