Summer Bible Study

Let Us Pray

Women, in your summer months, take time for a monthly Bible study that centers on prayer. Writer Anna Madsen is a freelance theologian based in Two Harbors, Minnesota. Madsen is an ELCA pastor with a Ph.D. in theology from the University of Regensburg, Germany. An accident that killed her husband and inflicted a traumatic brain injury on her small son rearranged her family, her theology, her faith, her view 

Each month's Bible study at Zion will be held in the Fellowship Hall. Check your calendar and come to any or all of the sessions (June 19, July 17, August 16). Bring a Bible. Study guides and treats are provided. No charge for the study, but sign-up is helpful to plan for materials. Sign up online or at the information desk.

The Products of Prayer (Romans 8:26-28)
Thursday, August 16 at 7pm, Led by Mary Johnson
It is indeed true that many results of prayer are intangible—and even impossible—to discern. But it is also true that prayer can demonstrably change the brain, reduce stress levels and, some studies say, appear to correlate to otherwise inexplicable healing in those for whom people have prayed. In the final session of this series, we will investigate the effects of prayer personally, communally and on the mission of the church.

Women of the ELCA

WELCAThe cross, water and white lily identifies the Women of The Evangelical Lutheran Church (WELCA) as children of God; baptized, forgiven and adopted into God’s family, full of grace and hope in eternal life.It is a reminder of the growth, beauty, and vitality that rises out of that life-giving baptismal water.It is also a reminder of the mission of the church.

Go, therefore, make disciples of all nations; baptize them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Matthew 29:19
