Pastor - Reverand Greg Knippa


What a privilege to serve Zion Lutheran Church in Castroville, Texas and this wonderful community. Each day we seek to grow in GOD's grace so that we may be effective servants of HIM to our community.


GOD is growing HIS kingdom here through those who are purposeful in making HIM known in the world through their actions. Most of these, on the surface, might seem quite ordinary but, when placed into GOD's care, become an extraordinary force for sharing the Gospel. That's Zion Lutheran Church.


I love to see or even hear about when someone gets that "Aha! - GOD!" moment when they see that GOD really does care about them and works in their life extraordinarily through ordinary means, just like HE did with Peter and Paul, just like HE does with all who confess JESUS as LORD.


May the LORD richly BLESS all of you as we, together, boldly, and joyfully seek to serve HIM, who first served us.  Blessings for all!


Your servant in CHRIST,

Pastor Greg

Our musical ensembles embrace this and believe that their Joyful Noise provides an additional vehicle for God’s Word and Spirit to reach members of the church family and the community. 


We are always on the lookout for new members for both choirs as well as individuals who are willing to contribute their instrumental skills to our worship services. So, if you want to be part of the joy, please contact the church office.


We are confident that you will feel the spirit and enjoy the fellowship as we “make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise”.
