A Brief History

of

The Zion Lutheran Church at Floyd, Virginia

by

Marguerite Tise

 

contributed to this site by Jack Spangler June 2002

 

        Zion Lutheran Church is located one mile north of the town of Floyd, just off the road to Christiansburg (Route 615).  The white frame church stands in a grove of magnificent oak trees, separated from the old cemetery by a thick growth of pines.

        The Lutheran congregation dates from the very early 1790s when a group of German Lutherans from Frederick County, Maryland, settled in the area; they were followed by numbers of German settlers who travelled down the Valley of Virginia to seek new homes in what is now Floyd County.  They were first served by the travelling preachers who heard the call and included the "Little River congregation" in their itineraries; they came periodically to preach, baptize the children, give communion and administer the rites of the church.  Services were held in cabin homes, under trees, or wherever they could find a gathering place.  Children born between the pastor's visits were all baptized together when he appeared.  The record shows that on April 30, 1805, twenty‑eight children were baptized.

        The congregation was formally organized on May 10, 1813, under the jurisdiction of the North Carolina Synod, by the visiting preachers, Rev. Jacob Scherer and Rev. R. J. Miller, who were on a missionary journey from North Carolina through the Valley of Virginia.  The 24 men who signed the charter represented with their families 195 members, an indication of the size and vitality of the congregation.  At the organization service, Rev. Scherer preached in German and Rev. Miller preached in English.  The records of the congregation were kept in German until 1833.

        The first house of worship was a log schoolhouse and church which stood in the center of what is now the church cemetery.  It was built prior to 1813, probably even before 1809 when the congregation was formally registered with the Virginia Conference of the Pennsylvania Ministerium as the Little River Church in Montgomery County, with elected officers: George Epperly, Henry Cronk and George Zentmeyer.  In 1838 the log church‑school was replaced by a larger log building on the same site.  In 1861, a third church was built of brick and stone and relocated several hundred feet from the old site on the edge of the oak grove near the site of the present building.  The congregation soon outgrew the old one, which was then torn down.  In 1979 and addition was added to the church for Sunday School rooms and fellowship hall.

        The first regular, resident pastor of Zion congregation was Rev. Martin Walter, who came to Floyd in 1826 from Botetourt County, originally from Shenandoah County.  He was followed by Rev. Daniel J. Hauer, and in the first one hundred years of its existence Zion was served by twenty‑eight pastors.  Eleven men have gone forth from the congregations of the Floyd Parish to serve as ministers of the Lutheran Church, an outstanding record.

        It may be of interest to note that Rear Admiral Robley D. Evans (Fightin' Bob) of the US Navy, Captain of the "Iowa" in the battle of Santiago in the Spanish‑American War, attended Sunday School at Zion when a boy.

        Zion Church has played an important part in the history of the Virginia Synod.  On May 21, 1842, the Synod of Southwestern Virginia was organized at a meeting held at Zion Lutheran Church, Floyd.

        In 1853 the second Lutheran congregation in the county was organized out of Zion.  It was first known as Olive Hill, later became Burke's Fork.

        Gladesboro, Carroll County, was organized in 1855 as a part of Zion; it became a separate congregation in 1959.

        In 1879, St. Mark's Lutheran Church, Willis, was organized out of Zion.  Later Burke's Fork joined with St. Mark's to become one congregation which grew and flourished and soon surpassed the mother church in membership.

Zion Church, Floyd, and St. Mark's, Willis now make up the Floyd Parish and are served by one pastor, now Rev. Richard A. Giessler.
