Inspiring stories about your investments making a difference in LCMS congregations across Texas.
Celebrating at Zion in Walburg!

On May 3, 2021, Zion celebrated the dedication of its new worship center! What a blessing to walk through this journey with them - a journey your investments made possible!

“The opportunity to partner with Texas CEF with the expansion of Zion’s facilities truly embraces the forward-thinking missional movement of expanding God’s kingdom in this place!”  - Pastor Kevin Hintze

“This Worship Center means so much to Zion as it gives us new opportunities to bring the larger community into our family. They may be unchurched or may not even know Jesus or just curious about how we are different from other churches. We can give them our love and share the love Jesus had for all of us when He died on the cross for our sins. Praise God for leading through the building process!” 
- Bonnie McNemar, Vice-Chair of the Zion Board of Stewardship.

“Everyone was so excited about worship and the new building. The energy in the room was palpable. As Director of Children’s Ministry, I couldn’t help but think about the future opportunities this space will allow, not only in my area of Ministry, but for Zion and the community.” 
- Rachel Mayberry, Director of Children’s Ministry
