January was more of a relaxing month at MZ with family activities including Monday night boys basketball, our annual family skating outing, and two guest preachers: Phillip Brown (Church Planter to Montana) and Travis Decker (Missionary to Russia). Bro. Decker stayed in the prophetâ€™s chamber for 3 weeks using it as a base to visit other churches and spend time with our people. We love the Deckers!
January and February are times to challenge our families, marriages, parents, and men in areas to prepare them spiritually for Spring outreach. We are also studying about cults and a series on â€śHow to deal withâ€¦â€ť to equip our people.
February features our annual Sweetheart Banquet the 11th and an all day Basketball/Volleyball Tournament for teens on 25th. Veteran Missionary to Mexico, Mike Denison, will be with us Sunday night, the 12th.
Remember the Reformersâ€™ Unanimous (RU) that meets every Friday night from 7 to 9 in our Gym for the purpose of helping anyone who is addicted to anything.
In a day when churches nationwide are in a state of flux, giving-in to new philosophyâ€™s of purpose-driven ministry and changing doctrines, Mt. Zion Baptist Church remains the way we have always beenâ€”â€śChurch, the way it used to be.â€ť We stress solid Bible preaching and teaching, emphasize individual and family living for Christ, focus on reaching out to our community and the world with the Gospel, and try to guard against the influx of worldliness into the church.
