Welcome to the Upper Bermudian Lutheran Parish. We are made up of two congregations – Mt. Zion Lutheran Church and Ground Oak (Upper Bermudian Lutheran Church).
We have shared a pastor for decades and alternate worship service times so that each has an early service (9:00 am) and a later service (10:30 am) on the alternate Sundays.
Also, each month we have a Joint Parish Worship service on the 3rd Sunday.
