Message From Church Council

LETTER FROM THE COUNCIL PRESIDENT

As I sit down to type this on November 15th, I look out the window to see snow filling the sky and 3 inches of snow in the driveway. It’s a little early in my book but I have to admit that it makes me think of the Christmas season.  By the time you receive this it will be about 3 weeks until Christmas and shopping season will be in full gear which can be pretty overwhelming.

As much as I love the season I sometimes lose focus on what Christmas is all about, the birth of the Christ child, an event that changed the world. I think it is important to take some time each and every day to remember the reason for the season and all the blessings that have been given to us through Jesus Christ our lord and savior. I am personally going to try to slow down and be more reflective this Christmas season. All of us have so much to be thankful for.

This year we will be back to 2 services on Christmas Eve, 7:00 pm and 10:30 pm. The church will be beautifully decorated and the service itself is always a highlight of the church year. Please plan to attend and invite your extended family and friends. It’s a great time of year for folks to find out what Mt Zion is about. Merry Christmas!

Joe Arndt, Council President
