Keeping Up with New Zion

New Zion is a busy place. We have a small group and an activity for everyone. Annual events include a Black History celebration, a picnic, Easter and Christmas programs.

In 2017 we are initiating an ongoing effort to address social justice concerns in our communities.

For a weekly and daily updates, look for “New Zion Community Church” in the app store for your phone.

Help us Meet our Transportation Needs

New Zion was in need of transportation to further its mission to spread the gospel and serve the spiritual needs of our congregation and beyond.
church vanIt is our pleasure to announce our beloved church has been blessed by a member who has donated a 16 passenger mini-bus (photo pictured above).  With this bus our church will have accomplished one of its long term goals of increasing active participation of current members who do not have transportation to church.  The addition of this bus will also allow the church to facilitate attendance at activities, events and programs.

To fully realize our blessing there is $1,900 worth of repairs, maintenance and upkeep that must be completed before the bus will be fully operational and safe.  Therefore, the Parish Life Council is asking all members to please make a sacrificial offering beginning August 23, 2015.  Please place your offering in the envelope marked “Church Bus”.  We pray the bus will be ready for use by Sunday, September 6, 2015.

If you have any questions Please contact Dinicia Hill or Stan Whittlesey.

Yours in Christ,

Robert Harvey
Senior Pastor

Stan Whittlesey
President, Parish Life Council
