Social celebration
In honor of the quasquicentennial (125 year) celebration of Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church, 218 E. High St. in Portland, the church is hosting a free ice cream social for the community at 1 p.m. Sunday at the church with vanilla ice cream, pie, cake and cookies. The Rev. Mark Strietelmeier has been pastor of the church since 1981. Zion held its first service on June 4, 1889, and completed the building in 1899. The parsonage was bought in 1961, and a contemporary house of worship was dedicated in 1963. The church has been the home of Zion Early Learning Center preschool since 1983. (Photo celebration)
