The Little White Church on the Hill (formerly Zion Lutheran) is located off Pioneer Highway, just under a mile outside the small town of Silvana. Built by pioneer families in 1890, it overlooks the beautiful Stillaguamish Valley. Services are held by Peace Lutheran in this historic sanctuary during July and August and at Christmas Eve and Easter.

The Little White Church on the hill is also a popular site for weddings.



As an associated ministry of Peace Lutheran Church, we are happy to make the Little White Church available for weddings.
