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 of the world, and her vocation.

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 Paradoxes of Prayer (1 Samuel 12:16-23)
Tuesday, June 19 at 9:30am, Led by Pastor Roger Johnson 
Called to pray, but for what purpose? Can we persuade God with prayer? Do we actually encounter God in prayer? Is the practice of prayer intended for the sake of the one praying or for the One to whom we pray? The Bible references all of these scenarios; however, each comes with biblical, theological and practical questions. In this first session on prayer, we’ll investigate the paradoxical truths of this spiritual practice.

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
