We have been Nominated for Front Yards in Bloom!!

The Front Yards in Bloom program partners (The Edmonton Horticultural Society, Canadian Union of Postal Workers, and the City of Edmonton.) offered us their thanks for our contributions in:

  • Bringing communities together;
  • Encouraging Edmontonians to get outside;
  • And bringing color and fun to our public space.

Thank you to Beryl Cousins and Danny Gunn-Fowlie for maintaining our flower beds, to Darrel Runka for arranging and directing yard maintenance, to Stephen and Bethany Borst for hedge trimming, and to all who work behind the scenes. A well-kept yard also communicates a caring and inviting community.

COVID-19 Worship Update

Dear Members and friends of Mt. Zion Lutheran Church,

The question has been asked, "When will our congregation resume public worship as well as other parish activities?" And we have a response! Our hope is to celebrate public worship once again beginning on Sunday, September 6th. Our re-launch committee is meeting on Wednesday, July 29th to confirm this date. Our crafting group is gathering each Thursday between 9:00 and 11:30 am, enacting all the necessary protocols. Men's Breakfast is tentatively scheduled to resume on Saturday, September 5th at Ricky's at

9:30 am.

Once a firm return date has been established it will be announced via

E-mail and Canada post; until then we will continue to worship on line.

God blessings on you all.

Yours in Christ

Pastor Tim Posyluzny


Sabine Kosche
