Angels

January 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 26: Looking up—New beginnings, awe-full, awesome angels


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

Equipment
FM Broadcast System
Grounds
South Parking Lot
Webpage
Lenten Everything

Take a few moments for ashes, scripture, and song in the parking lot at Zion any time between noon-1pm or 5-6pm.

Bring the center pages from the February newsletter along as your worship bulletin if you'd like to read and/or sing in your car. 
  • Park in the front / south lot and stay in your car.
  • Tune your car radio to FM 87.9 for a brief recorded service of readings, music, and responsive prayer (and remember to turn your lights off).
  • Those who desire to receive ashes or a no-contact blessing are invited to drive through the station under the canopy at any time (before or after listening to the recorded worship). Please wear a face covering at the ashes station.
  • Alternatively, choose to share the words of Ash Wednesday as you trace a cross on the forehead of all who are in your vehicle.
  • Stay in your vehicle as long as you'd like to listen to the pre-recorded worship.
  • Pick up Lenten kits and/ or prepackaged communion elements while you are at Zion.
The readings and music audio recording will also be available online any time on February 17 at zionbuffalo.podbean.com.

We know that when you commune at home, you won’t have the exact same elements that we use when we are in worship in the sanctuary. Gather any variety or wine or fruit juice, and any kind of bread product (rolls, pita bread, sandwich bread, a cinnamon roll, crackers, etc.).  Prepackaged communion elements are also available from the church office upon request or can be picked up at the Drive-through Imposition of Ashes prior to the online worship service. 

Please let us know you have communed with us by completing an electronic communion card at ZionBuffalo.org/card

Youth Gala

Well – after a lot of talk and prayer… we have decided to postpone the 2021 Youth Gala until March 4-6 2022.   While we believe that the restrictions would be lighter we do not want to diminish anything that the Gala has to offer and want nothing less than an amazing experience for all!  So save the date,  watch for updates, new options, new ideas and mini experiences that our Zion Youth will provide until we can once again gather with Black Ties on the Red Carpet right here in our church home!  We are always looking for people that want to get involved and now is a great time to jump in – if you are interested in helping us with our Dinner Theatre Experience contact Jess at 612-709-1221 or Karie at 763-229-3586
