  • 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.

    • What is the 2020 Census?

      The 2020 Census counts every person living in the United States and the five U.S. territories.

      • Census results help determine how billions of dollars in federal funding flow into states and communities each year.
      • The results determine how many seats in Congress each state gets.
      • It's mandated by the U.S. Constitution: The U.S. has counted its population every 10 years since 1790.
      • When you respond to the census, your answers are kept anonymous. They are used only to produce statistics.

      Getting a complete and accurate count in 2020 requires everyone's help. You can submit your answers to the Census questionaire online, by phone, or by mail. For more information, please access the link below:

    • “We Wear The Mask”

      The effects of COVID-19 on the health of racial and ethnic minority groups is still emerging; however, current data suggest a disproportionate burden of illness and death among racial and ethnic minority groups. 

      What we can do: 

      • Seek medical care, if  you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop a fever, cough or difficulty breathing. 
      • If you or someone you care for is at a high risk of getting very sick from COVID-19, take steps to protect them and you from getting sick.  
      • Take CDC recommended precautions to protect yourself, and others. 
      • Cope with stress to protect yourself and others.
      • Connect with your family and friends, while limiting face-to-face contact with others. 

      Why wear a mask? 

      Recent studies suggest that COVID-19 may be transmitted by infected persons even in the absence disease symptoms. While social distancing and good hand hygiene are the most important methods to prevent virus transmission, new guidelines suggest that individuals should consider wearing masks in public settings, particularly when physical distancing is difficult (like in grocery stores or pharmacies). Primary benefits of wearing a mask include limiting the spread of the virus from someone who knows or does not know they have an infection to others. Masks also remind others to continue practicing physical distancing. 

      More detailed information is available on the CDC website: 

      https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prepare/prevention.html

    • Be prepared to vote in November!

      Use your voice and vote in the General Election on November 3, 2020. Now more than ever, your voice needs to be heard! In the last election, less than 25% of registered voters in Lorain County participated in the election process. The most effective way to peacefully protest and protect your rights, is to vote. We do not know at this point how the November 3, 2020 election will be handled, whether mail-in or in-person. However, you can be prepared by doing the following:   

      • Become familiar with the candidates and issues. 
      • Make sure that you are registered, before the October 5, 2020 deadline.
      • Make sure that your name and address are updated before the October 5, 2020 deadline. 
      • Encourage your family members and friends to prepare for the election before the October 5, 2020 deadline. 
      • Vote early, if possible. Early voting begins on October 6, 2020.
      • Send in your absentee ballot early. Absentee ballots must to be post-marked by November 2, 2020. Note: The terms "Mail-in" and "Absentee" voting are the same. 
      • Take a valid form of I.D. when you vote. Polls are open on General Election Day (November 3, 2020) from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. 
      • Take your family members, friends and neighbors to the polls to vote.
