On Sunday morning at 9:30am we gather for worship at First United Methodist Church (55 Fenn Street, across the parking lot!) on the fourth Sunday after Pentecost.
As we celebrate the close of the school year, First United Methodist Church will host this joint FUMC/Zion worship service as we celebrate the youth of both congregations and recognize those who have guided them throughout the year. A special offering will be taken to support scholarships for children to attend the joint Zion/FUMC Vacation Bible School in July!
Please take special note: on Sunday, June 16, through the rest of summer, weekly worship begins at 9:30 am on Sunday mornings.
Next Sunday, June 23, we will worship back at Zion Lutheran at 9:30am as we celebrate a baptism!
Zion Lutheran & First United Methodist Churches invite you to “God’s Backyard Bible Camp” Vacation Bible School: July 8 through July 12, 9:00am to 3:00pm. Contact Gretchen Fairfield or Stephanie Filiault at (413) 499-0866 or email 2013VBS@roadrunner.com

Sunday’s Prayer of the Day:
O God, throughout the ages you judge your people with mercy, and you inspire us to speak your truth. By your Spirit, anoint us for lives of faith and service, and bring all people into your forgiveness, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. 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!
This Week in Worship is updated each week by the Thursday preceding Sunday worship.
