On Sunday morning at 10:30am we gather for worship on the second Sunday of Advent. It is the prophet Isaiah who tells of a voice crying out in the wilderness: “Prepare the way of the Lord!”
“The Rainbow Connection” children’s ministry for Zion Lutheran and First United Methodist continues on Sunday mornings at 9:00am.

Psalm 72:1–7, 18–19
Sunday’s Prayer of the Day:
Stir up our hearts, Lord God, to prepare the way of your only Son. By his coming nurture our growth as people of repentance and peace; through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
The people of Zion Lutheran Church have worshipped God on First Street near Pittsfield Common for over 150 years.
Though the exact words and musical styles have changed over the decades (and centuries), our weekly liturgy still observes the historic pattern of the early church: we read scripture, sing hymns and songs, hear a sermon, and pray for one another and those in need. We also celebrate Holy Communion each week.
Following worship, join us for coffee hour featuring Equal Exchange coffee, hot tea, and plenty of snacks—it all takes place right in the sanctuary!
