Sunday Mornings at 10:00am

Polka Band

Our worship services are casual, liturgical, and inclusive. We celebrate an open table at Holy Communion and offer a service of healing on fifth Sundays. Zion has a long history as a teaching congregation, so you might see seminary students helping to lead worship or preaching.

Music includes piano and organ with guest musicians joining throughout the year. Our violist in residence plays one Sunday each month and the hand bell choir plays at several services throughout the year. The vocal choir sings an anthem and leads congregational singing most Sundays. They rehearse before worship at 8:45am; they welcome additional voices to join them regularly or occasionally. Contact our Music Coordinator, Paul McCalvey for more information at paul@zionchurchmpls.org.


Our sanctuary seating includes a children’s area with bookshelves, coloring supplies, and a table with chairs. We welcome their voices and wiggles in worship! A nursery area is available next to the sanctuary. Parents are required to supervise their children in the nursery space.

Two more congregations worship in Zion’s sanctuary on Sundays:

  • Household of Faith Baptist Church at 11:30am
  • La Barca de Jesus Iglesia at 3:00pm


6:45pm Wednesday Evening Recovery Worship
This is Zion’s “second service” and all are welcome.

Recovery Worship is a service of evening prayer that blends songs of healing, devotional readings, and recovery resources. We meet downstairs in the Fireside Room after the Lyndale Community Dinner. This service is 45 minutes long and includes either Holy Communion or a healing ritual. Our definition of recovery is broad, including chemical and mental health, grief and loss, sexual and domestic violence, shame, and body image. Many who attend find the language of brokenness and recovery to be a new lens for their theology and experience of God’s grace. Join us and find out what recovery means to you. You can find the Fireside Room by using the blue door on the north side of the building.
