On Sunday evening, August 13th our congregation at Mount Zion has been asked to lead the evening worship service at 7:00 p.m. in the open air Tabernacle. We hope all members and friends of Mount Zion will join us that evening. Put it on your schedule and invite you family, friends and neighbors to come with you. There is a free brochure giving you more information about this amazing place right in our own neighborhood. Please take a copy! They are on the table in the Social Hall. It only takes about 9 minutes from Mount Zion to get to Emory Grove. Hope to see you there!
