|Church was built as a Union Church for both Lutherans and the German Reformed faiths. It was a log structure on the site of the present Holy Spirit Lutheran Church.
|A dispute between the Lutherans and the Reformed members arose while a new structure was being built. Before the Union Church was erected, a fire destroyed both the “new” and the “old” church. This caused the separation of the Lutheran Churches.
|The building located on Paradise Street, at a cost of $1600.00, was erected. The land was presented by Mr. Samuel Menges, Sr. who was an ancestor of many generations of the Menges family today.
|Two Sunday School rooms were added.
|A Parsonage was built on a lot adjoining the church property.
|Stained glass memorial windows were installed and are still in use today.
|New pews and gas lighting were added.
|Electric lights, a new furnace and carpeting were added.
|An electric organ ($11,000.00) replaced the old pipe organ.
|An educational building was constructed for approximately $125,000.00. This addition also provided Zion with a modern kitchen, the first indoor plumbing and a fellowship hall.
|Realizing that the original building had served its purpose and additional seating capacity was needed, the church was once again renovated both inside and out.
|A new electronic organ ($51,000.00) replaced the old organ.
|A chairlift was added to access the basement area.
|A church steeple was erected (proposed by the Janet Hause family and in honor of Pastor and Mrs. Flower).
|A stained glass window was added above the church’s main entrance door, in memory of Carol Benfer.
|A second story was added to the church to provide additional Sunday School classrooms. An elevator was added to replace the outdated chairlift and air conditioning was added.
|A modern sound system was installed in the church sanctuary also extending into the fellowship hall and lobby area.
|Air conditioning was extended to the newly constructed second floor.
|The parking lot was paved.
|A picnic pavilion was added adjacent to the church.
|Stained glass windows were added on both sides of the main entrance doors in memory of Megan Raup.
