On February 15, we enjoyed our annual Sweetheart Banquet as nearly 70 people braved the bad weather and enjoyed a delicious meal, followed with music by our orchestra and a pungent challenge from Godâ€™s Word. Couples were encouraged to visit the "Appreciation Room" with their spouse rather than the "Depreciation Room".
The next Saturday, February 22, we hosted our annual volleyball tournament with 6 different churches participating and over 200 in attendance. The day was filled with food, fun, fellowship, and a challenge from Godâ€™s Word. What a joy it was to get together with Godâ€™s people from other like-minded churches and to enjoy a day of clean Christian fun and fellowship.

Mt. Zion Baptist Church is old-fashioned in doctrine, Biblical in worship and music, and is a vibrant church that teaches and preaches the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe in the authority of Scripture, the Great Commission of reaching the lost, and the Biblical goal of perfecting the saints for the work of the ministry. If you are looking for a church that is building people up in the most precious faith, and building families for the glory of God, then I invite you to stop by and visit one of our services.
