Last week, several staff members from Lutherhill traveled to the Zion Retreat Center to help further the renewal and construction process. Lutherhill staff had the opportunity to explore Galveston and enjoy the island’s many treasures that all guests of the Zion Retreat Center will get to experience. But some of the greatest treasures they stumbled upon were, of course, in the Zion Retreat Center.
The Zion Retreat Center is built upon the foundation of Zion Lutheran Church, a Swedish Lutheran congregation established on Galveston Island in 1896. Take a look at the many worship pieces and artifacts of Zion Lutheran Church that Lutherhill staff found last week.
Just as the Zion Retreat Center will continue the ministry of Zion Lutheran Church, Lutherhill wishes for these worship pieces and artifacts to continue in ministry as well. If you or your congregation is interested in taking care of a piece of history from Zion Lutheran Church, please contact our office at (888) 266- 4613 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
