Our Story

Zion Lutheran Church & School, Denver, Colorado

Zion Lutheran Church is a member of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS).

We are located in the southwest area of beautiful Denver, Colorado. Our mission as a church is reaching out with the message of forgiveness through Jesus Christ, holding on to God’s unchanging Word.

The Lord’s abounding grace and his astounding faithfulness tell the real story of Zion Lutheran Church and School. 1965 marks the official beginning of the congregation, which formed when two smaller churches – Calvary Lutheran Church, in the Littleton-Englewood area, and Atonement Lutheran Church, in Lakewood – amalgamated and named their new church Zion. Committed to training their children in the Lord’s Word, the members of Zion established a Lutheran elementary school in September 1967. Zion is proud to continue carrying on this tradition of providing Christian education to Jesus’ precious lambs to this day.

The Lord has poured out blessing after blessing upon Zion Lutheran Church and School during its existence. He has built his people up in faith and equipped them for lives of service through his Word. He has brought us together and blessed us through the relationships we have developed. And he promises to continue to dwell in us richly through his Word, that we may never stop glorifying him for his abounding grace and his astounding faithfulness!
