Vicar's Book of the Month for March 2017

Vicar Joshua Ulm talks about this month’s “Book of the Month”
The Hammer of God, by Bo Giertz

In this bestselling novel, three pastors learn the necessity of relying on God's grace. They fall short of their pastoral duties through public humiliation, self-doubt, inability to accept God's promises in their own lives, and divisions and quarreling among their parishioners. Ultimately each man rejects temptations and permits the Holy Spirit to work through him. This revised edition includes the final chapter, never before published in English. The new introduction provides historical and theological background to deepen the reader's understanding of the stories.

Available in Zion’s Library downstairs in the conference room.
Also available on Amazon at:

Pray for Life

On November 12, a group from Zion Lutheran Church will pray and offer assistance outside the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Pittsburgh. As God's people we will ask for Him to act on behalf of the unborn and shine His light into the darkness. We will meet at Zion at 9:00 a.m. to pray, eat, and prepare ourselves. At 10:00 a.m. we will carpool downtown to pray and offer help to those who need it. If this is your first  time doing something like this, a group will go back to Zion after about an hour. A group will also stay until 1:00 p.m. and return to the church for lunch and a debrief. If you can't make it to the church for the preparation time, there will be a video you can watch online and then you can meet us downtown at 10:00 a.m. This is an important opportunity to act on our convictions and spread the Gospel in a difficult situation. Contact Vicar Joshua for more information.

Dress the Vicar .... in Steeler's Gear!

Many of you know that our Vicar is an avid Cleveland Browns fan. Many of you also know that the Steeler's play the Browns on November 20. Hopefully you also know that Zion is raising money to purchase bells to form a bell choir. What do these things have in common, you ask?

Well, on November 20th we will meet in the church basement to have pizza and watch the game. Joshua was planning to wear his number 16 browns jersey, but he is willing to give Zion control over his wardrobe... for a price. Starting this Sunday there will be a box in the narthex to place your cash or check in. For example ,if Zion raises 25 dollars for the bell choir he will wear black and gold socks. For 100 he will have a terrible towel around his neck. 250 dollars earns a Steeler's hat. 1000 dollars and he wears all of the above plus a jersey. If we pay for the whole bell choir, he will wear a Steelers jersey to men's Bible breakfast every Saturday for the rest of his time at Zion. A photo will be posted on the church website if you are unable to make the game. Look for the progress chart in the Narthex to keep track of our clothing item goals.
