Summer Sunday Electives

Sundays, 9:15 to 10:15 a.m.

Zion presents a series of Christian-themed seminars for our guests and members. These seminars will be informal and conversational in nature.

One class already planned is a 4-session seminar using CD's and a teaching guide based on Max Lucado's book "Max on Life".  These four sessions will not be back-to-back, but will be spaced out through the summer. (There will not be seminars on the first Sunday of the month.)

Check back to see what the other topics will be.

Join us for worship on Sunday, June 5, at 9:30 a.m. as we celebrate a Polka Mass with the Heidelberg Brass Band.  This traditional liturgical service is set to popular polka and waltz tunes and will be led by a live polka band!  The music and lyrics combine in a very respectful and fun way to praise God.  Pastor Newell Embley will be preaching and presiding at this special worship service which will begin at 9:30 a.m.  

After the service, we will adjourn to the Multi-Purpose Room to play some trivia games and learn how to do the Polka. Lunch will be provided at 11:30 a.m. If you would like to stay for lunch, please RSVP using this form.

Leola Community Meal

Third Friday of each month at 5:55 p.m. This is a free meal that is open to everyone in the community.


Zion Lutheran, Leola, PA has been serving the community and beyond since 1817. In 2001, the congregation moved from its location at the corner of Route 23 and Heller's Church Road to a new site and building at 18 Quarry Road, Leola, PA 17540.

Many people have said, "This is not your typical Lutheran congregation." We are not exactly sure what that means but we do believe Zion is a place where everybody is somebody and Jesus is Lord. We are learning to live out the marks of discipleship each day: Prayer, Worship, Reading the Bible, Service, Giving, and Relationships.
