Giving to Zion is important – the resources we receive are used efficiently to do the work of the church both locally and throughout the world. We have meals for low income and homeless people every Tuesday, members work at the Food for Greater Elgin pantry, mentor children in the public schools, support missionary work overseas, and provide spiritual growth opportunities and worship for people weekly. Your gifts make a difference in things that matter to God! Thank you.

Here are ways you can give:


Make checks out to “Zion Lutheran Church” and mail or bring to 330 Griswold Street, Elgin, IL 60123. If you bring it for worship, you can place it in the offering box on the wall in the narthex.
