Celebrating Reformation + Continuing This Sunday! Today, Sunday, October 22nd
We will share "reformation" information about Martin Luther in Germany & Europe and also
the reformation in 18th century England under John & Charles Wesley. Next Sunday, October
29th What do we mean when we say "Jesus Christ, yesterday, today and forever" while at the
same time how the church of Jesus must always be in a reforming mode to meet the
changing times and culture where we live.
Thank You to Everyone! Our heart-felt appreciation to everyone who helped plan, set up
signs & tables, work in a hot kitchen, serve tables, clean up tables, donated homemade bake
good items, sold tickets, scraped food plates, wash dishes, clean up after everyone has left,
donated items for the silent auction and the list goes on. Raising money on our semi-annual
Pancake Brunch & Silent Auction is important. It supports our Maintenance/Building Fund
and our Community Service Fund outreach. But maybe the most important thing is when
faithful members & friends of Mount Zion come together and serve together as the Body of
Jesus. This is what "church" is all about!
