Welcome Students!  Zion is excited to be your church “home away from home” while you are in Columbus. No need to become a member of our congregation, but please introduce yourself to our pastor and the student leaders of LCMSU at Ohio State University.

Campus Ministry at Zion revolves around Sunday morning worship and the study of God’s Word.  In the Divine Service, our Lord Jesus is delivering His
gifts to us in Word and Sacrament.

Join us for Divine Service on Sundays at 8:00 & 10:30 a.m. and for Bible Study on Sundays at 9:15 a.m.  Zion is located on the COTA bus line (especially routes 1, 8 & CBUS)
and we are only 3 blocks away from a CoGo Bike Share station.

Join us for a free lunch on the 4th Sunday of each month at 11:45 a.m. during the Spring Semester.

On-campus opportunities for bible study and fellowship will be offered throughout the semester.  Check back to learn more, or let us know you’re around and we can add you to our student email list.

We meet twice per month for Bible Study on the OSU campus.
During the Spring Semester, we are meeting on the 1st and 4th Tuesdays from 5:00 - 6:30 p.m.  We meet in the Ohio Union in the Keith B Key Center for Student Leadership and Service (usually in the Flag Room, but check our Facebook page to be sure).

Special note to our visitors and guests: Because those who eat and drink our Lord’s body and blood unworthily do so to their great harm and because Holy Communion is a confession of the faith which is confessed at this altar, any who are not yet instructed, in doubt, or who hold a confession differing from that of this congregation and The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod, are kindly asked to refrain from partaking of the Sacrament until first speaking with our Pastor.

Next to Easter, the oldest season in the Church Year is Epiphany. It has been observed since the second century, falling on January 6th.
