On June 1, 1872 sixteen families of the Lutheran faith bonded together to organize Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church in Wayne Township, Jones County, Iowa.  The first House of Worship was a single 28' x 48' structure dedicated in December, 1873.  On November 26, 1964, ground was broken for the current stone church with educational and social facilities.  Dedication services were held March 27, 1966.
