Organized and incorporated more than a century ago by German immigrants, Historic Zion Lutheran Church is a metropolitan congregation in Southwest Portland. The original Gothic Revival church was completed in 1890 on the corner lot of the present half-block site; the building in which Zion worships today was designed by world-famous architect Pietro Belluschi. Dedicated in 1950, it was acclaimed immediately as exemplary contemporary church architecture and has since been designated a Portland Historic Landmark and is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. This member of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod offers German service every third Sunday.
