Zion Church – Hudson Falls, NY
Zion Church, Hudson Falls, was incorporated in 1817 as the Episcopal-Methodist Church in what was then Sandy Hill. Initially, Services were held in a parishioner’s home. When the Episcopal and Methodist Churches split, a new building was completed in 1849 and consecrated as Zion Episcopal Church in the newly-named village of Hudson Falls. In 1968, just after Good Friday Services, lightning struck the church roof, causing a fire that left only the exterior stone walls. The interior was then rebuilt. As the parish grew, a Chapel, Parish Hall, suite of Sunday School rooms, and a full-service kitchen were added to accommodate ministries. Fr. Richard Lehmann is currently Priest-in-Charge. God has blessed Zion over and over: praise to You, Lord Jesus!
