Pentecost Flame

Happy Birthday, Church!

Even as we prepare for Zion Lutheran Church’s 250th anniversary (this coming Sunday), we also remember and celebrate the birthday of the church as a whole, when the Spirit came upon the disciples and began to move them into the community.

Attached below are the prayers, readings and reflections from our Pentecost service on June 5th, 2022.

Peace be with you all!

Prayer Labyrinth for 250!

A Prayer Labyrinth in the Church Garden is one of Zion’s special projects for its 250th anniversary.

A small ground-breaking ceremony is being held tomorrow, Sunday, April 24th, following Sunday service at the church. Construction will start next week.

The labyrinth is a simple, brick pathway through the garden area which symbolizes one’s spiritual journey inward to examine one’s life, and the return spiritual journey to engage the world.

A ribbon-cutting is planned for Sunday, May 29th.

The garden has always been open for all to enjoy, and Zion hopes this improvement will make it a favourite peaceful outdoor space in Lunenburg.

Prayers for Peace

A recording of the ecumenical prayer service held at St. John’s Anglican Church in Lunenburg, in which the Rev. Laura Marie Piotrowicz from St. John’s, Pastor Rick (our parish) and Pastor Tom Summers from St. Andrew’s Presbyterian church, provided the leadership.

Members of Grace Lutheran, Zion Lutheran, St. John’s Anglican, St. Andrew’s Presbyterian and St. Norbert’s Roman Catholic churches were present.

Keep praying, everyone, for the sake of the world.

Worship for Jan. 30

Hello everyone!

Hope you are all safe in the weather we are having.

This week, we are doing something a bit different. Thanks to the leadership of Julie over at St. Paul’s church in Bridgewater, all of the churches in the Atlantic Ministry Area are providing a joint on-line service. Multiple folks from multiple congregations have offered their gifts, Pastor Adam Snook has provided the sermon, and the result will be found at the link below.

Thanks to everyone who helped compile this service! Special thanks to Julie for her leadership and energy.

NOTE – The video will be available starting at 10:00 a.m. (Atlantic Time) on Sunday, January 30th.

Peace everyone!
