Women of Zion

A Community of Women created in the image of God, called to discipleship in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit.

The Women of Zion organization is striving to be relevant to the lives of a wide spectrum of Zion Women within the framework of the Purpose Statement of the Women of the ELCA. We commit ourselves to grow in faith, affirm our gifts, support one another in our callings, engage in ministry and action, and promote healing and wholeness in the church, the society, and the world.

Fall Women's Bible Study
Holy Time  is the theme of the three month study this fall. How is God with us in the past, present, and future? What's the role of time in the daily living of our faith? 

The October study focuses on recognizing the now. How do we grasp the times we are living in?  What does it mean to recognize "kairos time"? 

Retired pastor Roger Johnson will provide video for the October Bible study, with hosted discussions on October 20.

Watch the video online and then choose your study option:
  • Self-study using the Gather Magazine resources (contact Sherilyn for information). 
  • Watch with 2-3 other friends as outdoor time on a porch or patio
  • Watch at home alone, then enter into an online Zoom call at 11am. The video chats will be hosted by Nancy Dehmer and Sherilyn Burgdorf. Contact Nancy Dehmer (763.238.4940) or Sherilyn in the church office (763-6382-1245 ext 108 or sherilyn@zionbuffalo.org) to get the Zoom link.
  • Watch at home and then meet under the trees on the west lawn at 1:45pm for a discussion hosted by Nancy Dehmer & Sherilyn Burgdorf. Bring your own beverage if you choose (there will not be shared food at this event).  Contact Nancy Dehmer (763.238.4940) or Sherilyn in the church office (763-6382-1245 ext 108 or sherilyn@zionbuffalo.org) to sign up. If the weather is not suitable for meeting outdoors, the group will meet in Trinity Hall.

The October study focuses on recognizing the now. How do we grasp the times we are living in?  What does it mean to recognize "kairos time"? 

Retired pastor Roger Johnson will provide video for the October Bible study, with hosted discussions on October 20.

We realize that there are different comfort levels in being indoors/outdoors and being with small groups or staying at home. Zion Women's Ministry is providing a variety of options for this study. 

Come to Zion's Fellowship Hall, 1:00pm to watch the video before outdoor discussion hosted by Nancy Dehmer & Sherilyn Burgdorf. Masks are required indoors. 

Then go outside to under the trees on the west side of the building for a discussion hosted by Nancy Dehmer & Sherilyn Burgdorf. If you prefer watch the video earlier at home and come only for the outdoor discussion, meet by the new platform on the west lawn at 1:45pm.  

Bring your own chair, and beverage if you choose (there will not be shared food at this event). Contact Nancy Dehmer (763.238.4940) or Sherilyn in the church office (763-6382-1245 ext 108 or sherilyn@zionbuffalo.org) to sign up. If the weather is not suitable for meeting outdoors, the group will meet in Trinity Hall.
