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.

Angels

March Bible Study is Online Only

The Bible features numerous encounters with angels who show up on an array of missions, from wielding a sword (Genesis 3:24), to rescuing a child (Genesis 22:11-12), to a mass choir singing, “Glory to God in the highest” (Luke 2:14). Angels are not a major focus of Holy Scripture, nor are they ever mentioned in our Christian creeds. Yet they show up with frequency and at pivotal moments in both Old and New Testaments. Church Reformer Martin Luther is quoted as saying, “If you picture the Bible to be a mighty tree and every word a little branch, I have shaken every one of these branches because I wanted to know what it was and what it meant.”

This winter, the Rev. Christa von Zychlin is presenting a four-part study “Journeys with angels” in which we will shake those biblical branches, watch for angels and listen for God’s calls to action.

January: Looking up—New beginnings, awe-full, awesome angels


February: Repentance and route-changing angels



March: Loneliness, abandonment and holy comfort



Zion women’s ministry will host a Zoom online discussion of the study on Tuesday, March 23 at 9am.
 

April: Feasting angels
