Hey Christians!  What do you have planned tonight?
Be in a space where you can celebrate what God brought you through in 2019.
You are invited to the celebration at MT Zion Church of Ontario which kicks off at 7:30 pm with the Movie: “God’s Not Dead,” plus food, fun, kid bouncers, games, spoken word, open baptism, praise dance, Lords Supper, and prayer for the New Year.
Whatever and wherever your plans, remember, you are a Christian and God expects you to point people to Jesus: “Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (I Cor. 10:31).

God Bless,
Pastor Brian E. Kennedy, Sr.

Stick to Your Faith in God!

As you make bold statements about  God, and cooperate with Him to do the humanly impossible, stick to your faith in God.  Why?  Because the enemy will attack by causing you to doubt what God promised.  You will be tempted to “walk by sight” and do things in your human strength, which hinders God-sized outcomes.
Ezra, the priest and scribe, was ashamed to ask King Artaxerxes for a military escort back to Jerusalem because he said to the king: “Our God’s hand of protection is on all who worship him, but his fierce anger rages against those who abandon him” (Ezra 8:22).
The long trip back home was full of unknowns.  Ezra had to stick to his faith.  As you approach Christmas, and the challenges in the new year, no matter what, stick to your faith in God.

Merry Christmas,
Brian E. Kennedy, Sr.

Give the Greatest Gift!

The giving spirit that accompanies Christmas flows from our God Who gave Jesus as the greatest gift to the world (John 3:16; Matt. 1:21).
As you complete last minute shopping, attend various gatherings, attend church, and exchange gifts, be intentional about sharing “The Greatest Gift” with family, friends, and others as God gives you opportunity.
1. Share God’s Love (John 3:16).
2. Share our problem (Rom. 3:23).
3. Share God’s solution (Rom. 5:8).
4. Share our responsibility (Rom. 10:9-10).

Have A Merry Christmas

Amazing Dreams Come True

With all the Christmas stories playing on IOn TV with amazing dreams coming true, why not seek am amazing dream for yourself.  Seek restoration in a broken relationship.  We celebrate Christmas because God pursued something amazing.  Namely restoration from a broken relationship with you and me (John 3:16).  Jesus aligned with God The Father and declared: “For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost (Luke 19:10).  Amazing!
Christian’s, let’s follow Jesus and reach out to seek restoration in broken relationships and experience an amazing dream come true.

God Bless,

Just Say: “Thank You”

Momma always taught us that people do not have to be nice, and when they are, say thank you.  After pastoring at Mt. Zion church of Ontario for 21 years, the Mt. Zion family, and friends once again graciously expressed their love to my family and to me.  Thank you Mt. Zion and friends for being loving.  Romans 12:5, describes us as many members of one body intricately connected together, which makes us an eternal family.  After 21 years, I am still delighted to serve alongside of my Mt. Zion family.  We are not a perfect church, but we are a church committed to loving God (Matt. 12:28-30), loving each other (John 13:34-35), loving others (Mark 12:31), and pursuing the Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20).

Christians, join me in praising God for His loving people at Mt. Zion, Ontario.

God Bless,
Pastor Brian E. Kennedy, Sr.
