Zion-st John Lutheran School
Lutheran Family Service began in 1901 when Lutheran churches and schools were being established all over the State of Iowa and the population was growing rapidly.
Iowa Lutheran lay leaders and pastors recognized the pressing need to find Christian homes for the many orphaned children who were not able to live with their own families because of the death of a parent, illness or harsh financial times.
The Lutheranish Kinderfreundgesellschaft was established. Children were provided with love and care until a permanent home with a Christian family could be located.
The mission of Iowa District West is Connecting, Resourcing and Partnering with our member congregations for the extension of the Gospel within our communities, throughout the District and into all the world.
