Hi! My name is Timothy 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. Zion Lutheran Church is also active throughout the year! 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. A hearty reception precedes Jazz Vespers at 5:30pm, so come early! Jazz Vespers is now in its fourth season, and our musicians are superb.
We have a number of special events and activities throughout the year, from intergenerational faith formation activities, to our Community Suppers, to serving with the Christian Center and Cathedral in the Night, to events like the Plant Sale and Tag sale, to Beer & Hymns & Showtunes, to Beer & Carols, to the “Yule for Fuel,” a sing-along and concert event for the PACC Emergency Fuel Fund and cohosted by the Berkshire Concert Choir. That’s just a sampling of what we do… 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
