  • Copy of End of Life - Terminal Health | Zion Lutheran Church

    End of Life & Terminal Health Concerns "I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die." (John 11:25-26) Receiving a diagnosis of cancer or any serious illness often brings an overwhelming sense of reality to our doorstep. It's that moment when the inevitability we've always known suddenly stands right before us. The questions flood in: What treatments will I need? Will I be okay? Who will care for my family during my hospital stay? And perhaps the most profound question of all – is God punishing me? ​ Facing a life-threatening illness or the effects of old age can force us to confront our own mortality. Most of us would prefer to avoid thinking or talking about our death, but turning a blind eye won't change the fact that we all share a 100% mortality rate. ​ In these challenging times, pastoral counseling offers a space filled with sensitivity and compassion. It can guide you to recognize the importance of not squandering your final days on worry, fret, or anger. How you approach your death communicates as much about your relationship with Christ as how you've lived. God has a good plan for us, providing a hope-filled path to magnify Jesus in our last days. Don't miss the chance to let your light shine, strengthening your faith in Him as your personal Savior. Remember, He's got this, and He's got you!

  • Marriage Counseling | Zion Lutheran Church

    Marriage Counseling If your marriage is on the rocks and you are wondering how you can improve it, please reach out to us. We are confident that God’s ways are higher than our ways and His thoughts than our thoughts. Jesus is able to fix your marriage and to give you what you are looking for. Zion Lutheran Church offers marriage counseling for couples in the Atlanta area. Usually, if counseling is integrated prior to marriage and/or during the beginning years of marriage, issues can be spotted and worked through in a more proactive approach. Our pastor desires to give you the tools you need to resolve conflict, to weather life’s storms, and to make transitions in life before they occur so that you are prepared to handle them. Still, even though there’s nothing in life quite as wonderful as marriage, there’s also nothing quite as challenging. Two very different people who have come to believe that their lives would be incomplete without the other, aren’t always as ready to seek the best for the other. As the years go by, it is not unusual for problems to arise—even in the best of marriages. Healthy marriage relationships require constant attention and effort. Zion Lutheran Church desires to offer Christian couples marriage counseling should you desire it. You don’t have to be Lutheran to receive our services. We want all marriages to succeed. Just know that you will be treated with kindness, compassion, and love. Zion’s pastor approaches marriage counseling with a sense of hope. He believes that things can get better through the forgiveness and healing that is found in Christ and that you can have the marriage you desire, even though you may be tempted to believe this is not possible. If your marriage is on the rocks and you are wondering how you can improve it, please reach out to us. We are confident that God’s ways are higher than our ways and His thoughts than our thoughts. Jesus is able to fix your marriage and to give you what you are looking for. Reach out to us at www.zelcloganville.com . We’d like to assist you in fixing your broken relationship.

    Proclaiming the good news of Christ crucified for sinners! Welcome!

Our Mission It is our desire to be a church that is faithful to carry out the Great Commission of Jesus. We are here to make disciples for Jesus. To carry out this mission we believe it is vital that we remain dedicated to the Bible in all it says. As the central teaching of the Bible, it is our desire to proclaim Jesus Christ as the only Savior of the world. This Gospel is "the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes" (Romans 1:16). Our Beliefs In short, our teachings are the teachings of the Bible, from a literal six day creation to eternal life through faith in Christ. As Lutherans, we believe that the teachings of the Lutheran Reformation are a correct understanding of the Bible, which distinguish us both from the modern "liberal" Lutherans as well as the more "conservative" protestant churches such as Baptist, Reformed, and non-denominational churches. Our Services Services are held each Sunday: Sunday School & Bible Study: 10:00 AM Worship Service: 11:00 AM We also hold special services during the week at specific times throughout the year. These additional services will be announced as they approach. Our Library You are welcome to view, print, and distribute everything in our online library without permission or cost.

Best of all, we offer it free of charge. The only thing it will cost you is your time and a commitment to apply what you learn. While our pastor is not a trained clinical psychologist or board certified counselor, his commitment to the Word of God, together with an education focused on helping people apply it to their lives, makes him a valuable added resource for those struggling with problems common in society and culture. He can't prescribe medications, but he can listen. He might not know the ins and outs of human neurology and physiology, but he understands quite well the human soul.

  • Bible Series Studies | Zion Lutheran Church

    Bible Series Studies These studies examine the individual books of the Bible in the way they were originally received - as a unit. ​ If you are looking for a months, maybe even years, long study to grow in your knowledge of God's Word, these studies will provide you just that. Follow Me: Discipleship Accor ding to Saint Matthew ​ The goal of this course is to study the whole gospel of Matthew. Matthew reveals to us how Jesus taught his disciples to make disciples of others. Matthew tells us to watch Jesus, learn who he is, and see his compassion and power and how he ushers in the kingdom of God. Watch him die for our sins and rise again. As we do this, we will be willing and able to follow him and grow in our ability to live for him. ​ The Gospel of John ​ The Gospel of John is noticeably different from the first three Gospels. It reads more like a theological textbook, explaining how different things are in the Kingdom of God. This series attempts to present the teachings of this important biography of Jesus in a way that focuses on the details so that the intent of the message becomes clear. ​ ​ The Acts of the Apostles ​The book of Acts may seem like a compilation of stories that are only distantly connected by the Gospel message. However, there is a very specific order to the book. We notice that it begins in Jerusalem, the heart and center of the Jewish religion. From Jerusalem, the apostles go out. They go down to Egypt. They go to Asia Minor. They go to Macedonia. They go to Greece. And finally, they go to Rome, the heart and center of the largest empire of the time. The Gospel of God’s grace toward all men is not bound up and squelched in Jerusalem, as the Jews would have had it. It continues to go out until it reaches the capital of the Roman Empire, from which is could easily be spread to every nation on the earth. That is the course, the journey, on which Acts takes us. ​

  • Stress Management | Zion Lutheran Church

    Stress Management "Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass, which is alive in the field today, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith!" (Luke 12:27-28) It is estimated that over 70 percent of Americans experience physical or psychological stress on a regular basis? According to this statistic, you probably are. The problem with stress is that it can begin to affect other areas of our lives - our health, our relationships, and even our relationship with our God and Savior. One of the bigger issues with stress is that it tends to keep us focusing too much on our circumstances and our ability or inability to change those circumstances. With this mindset, we tend to focus on the symptoms rather than the root cause. ​ While there are some physical exercises and techniques that help one cope with stress, pastoral counseling is intended to help correct and guide underlying attitudes concerning a whole array of life: possessions, work, health and fitness, marriage and relationships, etc. By focusing on Biblical encouragements to faith and prayer, along with a healthy dose of reminders about who is truly in control, the underlying causes of stress begin to subside. ​ Contact Help is just a phone call away... ​ Email: zionlutheran@zelcloganville.com Cell: 470-214-3401

  • Timely Topics | Zion Lutheran Church

    Timely Topics It's often difficult to speak intelligently on current issues, especially in a way that is faithful to God's Word and loving toward others. This series of lessons brings some of toda y's challenging topics into the open and into the light of God's Word so that we can be prepared to speak the truth in a spirit of Christian love. Individual Lessons Lesson 1 The fundamental differences between a biblical, creationist viewpoint and what is known as intelligent design. Lesson 2 Just as God created the earth’s atmosphere to sustain human life, he also promises to preserve the earth’s atmosphere and climate in such a way that it will always be able to sustain human life. Lesson 3 Without the Fall, attraction and gender identity would be in accord with God's perfect design. Because of the Fall, attraction and gender identity do not always align with God's perfect design. Lesson 4 As we think about our annual celebration of Christ’s birth, we want to make sure that we are giving full glory to God. Can we do so while also engaging in make believe? Lesson 5 A good review of what the Bible says about Baptism centered around the question of whether grandparents should baptize their grandchildren when their own parents don't. Lesson 6 There is much confusion regarding the practice of "Close Communion." We want our practice to be in accord with God's Word, so what does the Bible say about this always timely issue? Lesson 7 As separate as the kingdoms of the world and the Kingdom of God are, both are established by God, and they inevitably overlap. Most notably this occurs in the life of the individual Christian since Christians are citizens of both kingdoms.

  • about | Zion Lutheran Church

    Wel come Below you will find a brief historical sketch of Zion's existence as a Christian congregation together with basic information that sets us apart as a community of Christians. Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church is a congregation of Christians whose chief desire is to hear and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe that the Bible is God's holy word and is given to us on earth to know the way to everlasting life through faith in Jesus, who is the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world. Zion first began back in the 1980s as Christians who desired to hear nothing but God's truth began meeting in hotel rooms and homes in the greater Atlanta area. We first established Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church and chose a semi-permanent location in Lawrenceville, GA until such a time as we were, with the Lord's blessings, able to find a permanent home for our church. With the Lord's blessing, we were able to purchase a permanent location just south of Loganville, GA. Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church is an evangelical church, in the original sense of the word. Evangelical simply means "good news." We exist for the purpose of proclaiming the good news that God has forgiven the sins of the world through the cross of Jesus Christ. This is the Great Commission which Jesus entrusted to His believers. Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church is also a Lutheran church. We continue to h old to and to teach the truths of the Bible as they were brought back to light during the Reformation in the 1500s. We are happy to take on the name of Martin Luther only insofar as he himself was captive to the Word of God. Like Luther, we also recognize that there is only one name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved, and that one name is Jesus Christ. As a Lutheran church, we believe and confess the following: The Bible is the holy, inerrant Word of God and is therefore the only reliable guide for faith and life. The God of the Bible is the Triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The world and universe were created by the power of God's Word in six 24-hour days. Sin and death entered into God's perfect creation through Adam and Eve who were seduced by Satan. In love for the world, the Father sent His Son into the world to bear the punishment for our sins. Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of the Father who became a man for our salvation. Through the suffering and death of Jesus on the cross God has taken away the sin of the world. By the Holy Spirit, God calls sinners to faith in Jesus and thereby delivers to them the benefits of Jesus' cross. The Holy Spirit works the miracle of faith in the hearts of sinners through the means of grace, that is, through the preaching of the Gospel and the Sacraments of Baptism and the Lord's Supper. All to whom are granted this faith in Jesus are members of Christ's Church and will live forever in heaven. Those who believe in Jesus are called to be lights in the world by loving and doing good to all people. ​ Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church is associated with other churches throughout the United States and the world who share in these beliefs. You can find a list of these other churches by visiting our synodical web page at Church of the Lutheran Confession .
