Living with Life Change
Living and coping with COVID-19, has changed how we function at home, at church, and in society. The question of when can we change back to physically gathering at church is gnawing at us. We with much prayer, planning and staff and leader’s working hard to keep everyone safe, did hold a service in the church to celebrate the life of Taylor George, with 100 people in the sanctuary and 237 on-line.
With lessons learned from that service, and our monitoring the new spike in COVID-19 cases, please continue praying as we use God’s wisdom to keep His glory and your safety our priority.
Currently, we are considering inviting more small groups to physically meet outside as the Deacons have done for two months collecting offerings on Sundays from 9:30 to 12 noon, and the Youth Ministry has done for three weeks for Bible study.
As we seek God’s wisdom for Mt. Zion, please continue wearing your facemask in public, regularly wash your hands, and build a strong immune system (drink lots of water, hot teas, eat healthy, exercise, and get 7 to 8 hours of sleep nightly). Continue to connect via phone calls, face-time, texting, etc. Connect through zoom bible studies, the call in prayer meetings on Mondays, and on-line worship services (go to Mtzionontario.com for information).
Church, despite all the changes behind COVID-19, be encouraged “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever” (Heb. 13:8). Therefore, let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful (Heb. 10:23).
