Online Giving Comes to Zion
Early in 2015, we did a survey to determine whether there was any interest in Zion offering Online Giving. Based on the survey results we have decide to begin offering an electronic option for those members who would like to use this service.

Since then, an electronic option for making regular and special offerings has been available. Contributions can be transferred automatically from your checking or savings account. The secured service provider is Vanco Payment Service, which is used by most LCMS churches throughout the country. As you know weekly offerings can fluctuate significantly from week to week due to vacation, travel, illness and other circumstances, but when contributions are automated there tends to be less fluctuation in giving throughout the year.
