Outdoor Worship Service - Front Lawn
- Front Lawn
After the long winter and spring months we're anxious to get back outdoors for three worship services this summer: June 30, July 28, and August 25 at 10am.
Come to Zion's front yard, near the north parking lot for a Sunday morning service under the trees in the fresh summer air.
- Park in the north parking lot or walk from the south lot. There will be a front row of parking spots reserved for people who have difficulties walking through the yard and would like to worship from their car.
- Bring your lawn chairs or blankets for seating under the shade trees.
- Music will be provided by First Sunday and Friends.
- We'll even bring the coffee time outside!
- In case of inclement weather, the worship will be held in Trinity Hall; watch Facebook for last minute information.
The 8:30 worship will be held in the sanctuary as usual throughout the summer.

Summer Women's Bible Study - Fellowship Hall
- Fellowship Hall
- Women's Ministry
You may remember hearing the Joy Choir’s musical in March, Malice in the Palace, which tells the story of Queen Esther. It’s a story of faithfulness and bravery from the Old Testament scriptures. This summer women at Zion will be given an opportunity to dig deeper into Esther through a three-session series of Bible studies.
This study is written by Kay Ward, the first woman to be elected a bishop in the 541 years of the Moravian Church. Come to hear and learn about God’s calling of Esther and our calling to use our voices “for such a time as this.”

Roll up your sleeves and help save lives! Zion will proudly partner with the American Red Cross to hold the annual Zion blood drive. The Red Cross has over 130 years of experience providing humanitarian aid – including more than 70 years of supplying blood to those in need.
Each pint of blood collected can help save up to three lives and will touch the lives of so many more. What a great way to pay it forward and make an impact on people in our community and across the country. It’s not every day that we do something that has such a lifesaving impact.
There are many ways you can help, but most importantly please come out to donate. Make your appointment online at redcrossblood.org or call 1.800.REDCROSS (1.800.7332767). Zion’s sponsor code is Zion Lutheran Buffalo. Appointments are from 12:45-6:30pm.
