Summer Women's Bible Study
This year's summer women's Bible study theme is Just Love. This study in August will consider how justice and love intersect. What does “just love” look like?  How do we find love-in-action for God's people?

Mary Johnson leads this study on the Gather magazine Bible study for July: “Just Love” in the Nation: Giving Birth to Justice - The Hebrew People in Exodus

Watch the video online (available soon) and then choose your study option:
  • Self-study using the study guide linked below (sign up for a free subscription to Gather's e-newsletter)
  • 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 on August 18. 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 on August 18 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.

Mary Johnson leads this study on the Gather magazine Bible study for August: “Just Love” in the Nation: Giving Birth to Justice - The Hebrew People in Exodus

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 on August 18 to watch the video before outdoor discussion hosted by Nancy Dehmer & Sherilyn Burgdorf. Masks are suggested 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 1:30pm.  

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.

The Blessing Closet on Thursday August 27

The Blessing Closet will be open for distribution of free clothing for children and their families on Thursday, August 27, at Zion Lutheran Church. This distribution is by appointment only (in order to limit the people shopping based on CDC and Zion guidelines).

There are no income or residency requirements to qualify for free clothing Parents can 'shop' for themselves and their children without restrictions.  Children can be present to do their own shopping, but adults who wish to pick up clothing for their absent children just need to register each child and age.

All attendees over age 5 must wear a face covering inside the building and while waiting to enter.

Golf Outing

The 2020 Zion Golf Outing will be held at Albion Ridges Golf Course on Monday, August 31, with check-in starting at 11:30am. 

The event will be a four-person scramble with a shotgun start at 1:00pm. The cost of your golf and lunch will be $75/person.  You can sign up as an individual or get your team of four together. There will be various prizes awarded to teams and you don’t have to be a great golfer to win.  

For many years Zion mission teams, through an organization called Mission Jamaica, have been traveling to Jamaica  to provide medical assistance to numerous residents and to construct small homes for Jamaicans in need of our help.  This year’s event proceeds will be used to help pay for building materials to construct a simple, decent and affordable housing for a family in need.  

Get your foursome together or sign up as an individual.
