  • Welcome!

     

    Grace and Peace to you from our Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you for spending a few moments with us. We are very excited about what the Lord is doing in, through, with and for the Mt. Zion family. We are now experiencing life and growth that only the Lord Jesus Christ could provide. One of the strengths of our ministry is our commitment to be a nurturing community for all those whom God sends to us.

     

    We want to build God’s people in such a way that we are equipped, encouraged and empowered to fulfill the Lord’s unique calling upon our individual and collective lives in faithful service and worship. It is our prayer that God will abundantly pour joy, blessing and power into your life. Be encouraged as you allow the Lord to touch and transform many lives through you. We invite you to share in our fellowship as often as the Lord would allow and make ourselves available for your continued walk with Him.

      The Story of Christmas:

      Over 2000 years ago, God was pleased by the faithfulness of a young woman named Mary. He chose her to be the mother of his Son. God sent an angel to deliver His news to Mary, who loved and trusted God and agreed to carry the Son of God.

      Mary was engaged to Joseph. Upon news of her impending childbirth, Joseph became concerned and wondered if he should marry her. One night, an angel appeared in Joseph’s dream and explained that Mary had been chosen by God. The angel also told Joseph that the baby would be named Jesus and would be the Savior of people. Joseph followed the instructions of the angel and married Mary.

      During this time, the Emperor ordered everyone to return to the town of their birth to register for the census. Mary and Joseph had to travel from Nazareth to Bethlehem. The only place they could find to stay was in a stable. Mary gave birth in the stable and made a bed for the baby Jesus in a manger.

      Outside of Bethlehem, angels appeared to shepherds tending to their sheep and told them that a Savior had been born. The shepherds found Jesus and told everyone about Him. They also praised God for the Savior. A new star also appeared in the sky. Wise Men in faraway lands saw the star. They had studied the stars and had read in old writings that a new star would appear when a great king was born.

      The Wise Men followed the star in search of the new king. King Herod became angry at the idea that there might be a new king to take his place. Herod sent for the Wise Men and told them to tell him how to find the new King, so that he can worship him. The Wise Men continued to follow the star. It seemed to shine directly on the stable where Jesus was born.

      The Wise Men entered the stable where they found Jesus with Mary. They bowed down and worshiped him and placed the gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh before Jesus. The Wise Men were warned by God in a dream not to go back to Herod. 

      When the Wise Men had gone, an angel appeared to Joseph in a dream and told him to take Jesus and Mary to Egypt to escape Herod. They followed God’s instructions and remained there until Herod died. Shortly after they left, Herod realized he had been tricked by the Wise Men and he was angry. Herod gave orders to kill all boys aged two or younger in Bethlehem and the surrounding area.

      Upon Herod’s death, Joseph had another dream in which an angel appeared to him. The angel told Joseph to return to Israel with his family. When Joseph heard that Herod’s son was the king of Judea, They relocated to Galilee in Nazareth.

       

    • Hear A Word From Our Lord!

      “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
      — Hebrews 12:1-2 (NIV)
