Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church of East Petersburg

Our Worship

God & the people of Zion invite you to worship with us Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m.

Each Sunday, we gather to sing praises, to pray together for the world and for one another. We listen to & read scripture, offer & give thanks for God’s generous gifts — our time, our talents and our possessions. We hear a message relevant to all ages. During the first and third Sundays, we celebrate Holy Communion.

Are you looking for a church home? We are praying that God leads you to Zion. There is a place for you, here.

Lancaster Lebanon Habitat for Humanity

Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church—East Petersburg—Pennsylvania

Lancaster Lebanon Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization that helps families build and improve places to call home. We believe affordable housing plays a critical role in strong and stable communities.

Habitat’s homeownership program offers a path to an affordable, decent home for first-time homebuyers in Lancaster and Lebanon Counties. Future homebuyers and their families will build strength, stability and self-sufficiency as they work through the program — prior to purchasing their Habitat home with a zero-percent interest mortgage that is tailored to fit their budget.

Affordable home inventory is at an all-time low. Our community is in urgent need for more affordable housing opportunities that are centered on lower-income families. Please consider joining our team of sponsors and supporters who have helped with previous builds. Visit our Support Us pages to learn how you can make homeownership a reality.

You do not need to wield a hammer to volunteer with Habitat. There are so many ways that you can get involved. Our volunteer program offers a wide range of charitable activities for every kind of skill. If you have any questions regarding your participation, please contact Dan Bohler at dpbohler@yahoo.com.

Volunteering for construction is one important way to contribute. If that is not an option, please consider making a financial donation.
