As Spring begins, we are so excited, here at Mt Zion, to be starting so any exciting initiatives that will be a blessing to the Body of Christ. We are excited about the continued expansion of our Prison Ministry which is helping returning citizens to get reconnected as they come home to a new day in their lives. We are excited about our Capital Campaign Project, as plans are taking shape for the restoration and renovation of Fellowship House and the ongoing phases of our building plans. We are excited about our 150th Anniversary and about the ways that we are celebrating it monthly and drawing attention to the many things that God has done and is doing in the Life of Mt. Zion. We are especially excited to be embarking on a new vista in our Youth Ministry: the Mt Zion Youth Community Choir which will be facilitated by Minister Sadaqa Redus. This choir will be open to all youth of the Greater Cleveland community, and I know that it will be a great blessing to Mt. Zion.
As we move forward in this season of Lent, I am excited about all of our church family who are embracing the message of Lent, through reflection and sacrifice. I am praying for all and especially for those who are taking the Daniel Fast journey along with us. Over the next several weeks, I will be talking with our church family about going to another level of health and wholeness by journeying with me for 40 days on the Daniel Plan following Easter. It is an exciting way to transform your life for the better that was created by Pastor Rick Warren, the author of the bestselling book Purpose Driven Life. We will share more about it in the days to come.
As we forge forward, let’s work together to take Mt Zion to a new place of worship, work and witness, for our Lord, Jesus Christ.
