On June 16, 2012, Mt. Zion Lutheran Church celebrated its 50th Anniversary!

50th-anniversary-seal-eps-3917802

The scripture chosen for this special day was
“The Lord has done great things for us and we are filled with joy.” (Psalm 126:3)

On Sunday, June 25, 1962, Rev. Tietgen, Alex Sarvari and Elmer Becker
broke ground for the new Lutheran Church in Cranbrook, B.C.
On May 1, 1963, the building was completed and dedicated.
Members of the congregation picked the rock locally for the stone ‘tower’
that graces what was once the front entry of the church.
