Hi! My name is Timothy Weisman, and I serve as pastor at Zion Lutheran Church in Pittsfield.
Fall is my favorite season in the Berkshires—the crisp temperatures, vibrant leaves, and invigorating hikes make this a very special place to live, work, and vacation. Fall is also a great season to be a part of Zion Lutheran! Sunday worship is at 10:00am each week, and right after worship is our new faith formation ministry for kids called “Faith Table.” (Think Sunday School, but better!) After worship, children and youth are invited to grab a snack and gather around the table in the back of the sanctuary. We’ll check in with each other, hear the primary reading again, talk, pray, and bless one other for the week. All ages (including adults) are welcome!
In addition, Jazz Vespers, an ancient service of singing and prayer blended with jazz and blues, returns in October on Thursdays at 6pm. Jazz Vespers is now in its fourth season!
Other upcoming special events this fall include a German Oktoberfest celebration, a concert to benefit the Jazz Vespers ministry, our annual tag sale, and two Christmas-themed events in December: Beer & Carols, a sing-along at Baba Louie’s Pizza, and “Yule for Fuel,” a sing-along and concert event cohosted by the Berkshire Concert Choir. In addition, I’ll be presenting an organ recital at Zion Lutheran in November… be sure to watch our home page and our weekly newsletter to find out the specifics about these events and others along the way!
Whether you’ve lived in the Berkshires your whole life or are visiting for the weekend, whether you’ve worshipped at Zion Lutheran Church a thousand times or are contemplating coming for the first time… welcome. You will find a home here in this place!
God’s peace be with you.
The Rev. Timothy Weisman, Pastor
