Zion Web Page. Are you interested in building a website?  We are looking for volunteers to help create a new website for our church. We need someone that can work with a company online to construct a new website. It would involve meeting with the different Church Committees and Council to get their input on what they would like our website to contain and then working with a company like ShareFaith to create the website. This project will take many hours over a several-month period. If you are interested, please contact Dan Paulson at 605-594-3165 or email him at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Please allow up to an hour to check-in, be professionally photographed, view and select your photographs. Everyone will receive a $10 coupon to be used towards your Lifetouch photography order. In addition,bring a donation of school supplies to your photography sessions, and receive an additional $5 off your Lifetouch photography order. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you.
