Giving to Zion


Zion Lutheran Church relies on the generous donations of members and friends to fund all our general operations as well as our special projects and ministries. To make donating as convenient as possible, we provide several different ways to give:

  • Donate online through Zion’s website (not recommended for smartphones) using credit/debit card or withdrawal from checking or savings account.

  • Donate using your smartphone by downloading the free and secure Vanco Mobile app from App Store or Google Play Store.

  • Donate by mailing a check or money order to Zion at 143 Albany St., Ferndale, MI 48220. Please make checks payable to Zion Lutheran Church.

Give from Computer or Tablet

Having Trouble Giving Online?

With the increased online giving through the web or app, some problems have come to light. Several donors have multiple accounts because no or different email addresses have been entered.

Please enter 1 email account and use it consistently. The same goes for names, only first and last in the same order, without middle initials preferably.

At this time, Firefox or Edge browsers are encouraged on the web, since there are some problems with Chrome at our provider, Vanco. As we learn more, we'll pass it on. If you have problems, please
contact us.  


Give Plus Mobile (Give+ Mobile) - Download the smartphone app for your iPhone or Android. The app is free. Once you download the free app, search for Zion Lutheran Church (verify address is 143 Albany, Ferndale, MI) and make your contributions right from your phone. You can set up a profile to make a one time or recurring gift.
