Women's Bible Study
JOIN US as we study “Journeys with Angels“
Thursday, January 7, 2021 via ZOOM (ID: 4159243782)
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 frequently 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.”
In this four-part study “Journeys with angels” we will shake those biblical branches, watch for angels and listen for God’s calls to action.
January: Looking up—New beginnings, awe-full, awesome angels
February: Repentance and route-changing angels
March: Loneliness, abandonment and holy comfort
April: Feasting angels
This series is presented by the Rev. Christa von Zychlin who has served Lutheran churches around the world through ELCA Global partnerships. Pastor Tom will lead the discussion via ZOOM.

A service of song, silence and contemplation
Our Taize worship service is temporarily ON HOLD until we are able to gather together again in our sanctuary.
This beautiful reflective service of music, scripture and prayer, originated at the Taize Community in the Burgundy region of France. Our service follows closely the original service (many of the hymns/chants we already sing in our services) with some minor adaptations. We will worship in quiet and candlelight.
The Taizé Community is an ecumenical Christian monastic fraternity in Taizé, Saône-et-Loire, Burgundy, France. It is composed of more than one hundred brothers, from Catholic and Protestant traditions, who originate from about thirty countries across the world. It was founded in 1940 by Brother Roger Schütz, a Reformed Protestant.
Join us. All are welcome!
