Memorial Fund

The church always has needs for its continual growth. Memorial gifts help meet those needs.


How to Give:

Gifts are normally given in cash or by personal check, sent to the Memorial Committee at Zion Lutheran Church. All gifts are acknowledged to the donor by the church.



The memorial contributions make it possible for us to:

  • Provide funds to enhance the beauty of our church and grounds
  • Facilitate the spreading of the Gospel
  • Help in reaching persons of all ages
  • Build leadership with scholarship assistance
  • Furnish modern innovations that make it more convenient to do the work
  • Honor someone living or deceased

Our church and its ministries have greatly benefited from the generous memorials, which have honored the lives of Zion members and brought glory to God for all to remember.


How to Establish a Memorial:

  • A gift is given to the church in memory of a person and a memorial is established with the Memorial Committee.
  • The secretary of the Committee acknowledges to the donor all gifts that are received.
  • The funds are held in the person’s name until the family and the Committee designate where the funds are to be expended.  

There are two types of memorials administered by the Memorial Committee:

  • For a particular furnishing in the church or ministry of the church.
  • For living memorials, which are kept in designated funds, which draw interest and are used as needed by the ministries of the church.
