We are just astonished at the welcome we have received from the folks at New Zion! Every week we meet more kind and gracious people and see God's wisdom in bring us here. If you have ideas you'd like to see implemented or anything you're not crazy about, please let us know. We want this to be a church that we ALL want to invite others to!
It was an awesome first Sunday at New Zion!
Are we "NewZ's" It was wonderful to worship and get to know one another a little better! I know God wants to do some wonderful things here through the "Loving Church with a Big Heart".
We will be starting a series in James this Sunday and pursue what it means to have a dynamic faith. A we put that faith into action it will be exciting to see all that God does.
Sherry and I look forward to serving with you on this journey.
