Hi. My name is Tim Weisman, and I serve as pastor at Zion Lutheran Church in Pittsfield.
We love the Berkshires—the crisp temperatures, vibrant scenery, invigorating outdoor activities, and incredible restaurants and cultural venues make this a very special place to live, work, and vacation any time of year. It’s also a really great place to be the church. Sunday worship is at 10:00am each week, and Jazz Vespers, an ancient service of singing and prayer blended with jazz and blues, happens on the first Thursday of every month at 6pm. Holy Silence, in which we hold open our sanctuary for God’s quiet presence, is every 1st and 3rd Wednesday from noon-1:00 p.m.; and our Evening Eucharist, a half-hour worship service in the middle of the week, is every 2nd and 4th Wednesday at 5:00 p.m.
There’s so much more I could tell you about, but let me just say this: I can’t believe I get to be the pastor here. Whether we’re worshipping or hosting an event in our gorgeously-renovated sanctuary, or out in the community leading Laundry Love or Cathedral of the Beloved, I’m amazed by how this congregation is in and with its community. To catch up on all the latest details, take a look at “What We’re Doing” above, or better yet, check out our latest e-newsletters.
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.
The Reverend Timothy Weisman, pastor
