1517 is a year with much significance in Lutheran circles. We of the reformation crowd, know that in October of 1517, Martin Luther posted the 95 the-sis on the door of the Castle Church. It was meant to start a dialog about challenges to scripture from the Church in practice.

We know that it went much further than a discussion in Wittenberg, Germany. It started what is now known as the Reformation. And so as Lutherans who gather at Zion Lutheran Church in Brighton, Colorado, we are reminded about the grace that God has given his children.

As we rejoice in this New Year, we will celebrate by taking a trip to Germany. Our circuit is considering doing a joint Oktoberfest together this year. As we look into these events and ministry opportunities, see how God blesses His people.

Luther found the work of God mainly in the study of God’s Word. We at Zion this year, will begin our journey together into God’s Word as well! We are as a Church going to be reading the Bible over the next two years. It’s a gift that we walk together through the Holy Scriptures. As we celebrate the incarnation of Christ the Word abiding with us, I wish to encourage each one of you to join us as we start this Bible class. We will have Sunday and Wednesday discussions, as well small groups that get together to encourage and share all that God is doing through his Word.

You are invited to join us as we walk in the footsteps of our Christian forefathers and other great men and women of the Reformation. Stand where it all happened and discover a deeper connection to your faith.

Step back in time on this unforgettable journey to visit some of the most important places of the life of the great reformer Martin Luther. Rejoice in the music of the church and the inspirational life and works of Johann Sebastian Bach. Travel back roads to charming well-preserved medieval towns and embark on an Elbe River cruise. Along the way we’ll sample regional cuisine, wine-tastings in the famous wine regions and shop for local crafts in the Germany art of glass-blowing or wood carving of the world-famous nutcrackers and Christmas pyramids. We’ll have time throughout our journey for reflection as we travel through some of Germany’s most tranquil landscapes and breathtaking scenery.

New Women’s Bible Study for women of all ages- 8 weeks- Tuesday Mornings- to begin Tuesday, June 7th at 10 a.m.

The Bible study will be held in my home at 1115 Hoover Ave., Fort Lupton and arrangements have been made for child care if needed.

I would like to tell you a little bit about myself and my goal for this Bible study. 20 years ago I loaded my three teen aged children into my van and drove us from the state of New York to join my husband who was working here in Colorado. When we arrived we had no family or friends here. Missing my family I found a church where I was comfortable and eventually found my (church) family. My (church) family was there with me through all the ups and downs. I have come to realize that many of today’s families in our church are in the same boat. I would like to start this Bible study in the hope that perhaps it will introduce you to someone who will not be looking to replace your family but to extend it here in Colorado. Our Bible study is entitled God is in the Laundry Room.

Call Jan Flinn at 303-857-6014 to RSVP.
