April 4 – The Passover Seder dinner & program that was scheduled with Robynne B. from Chosen People has been POSTPONED until next year.
April 5 – Palm Sunday: There will be NO SERVICE at the Mt. Zion building this Sunday! Some worship music by Bob and a message by Steve will be streamed online, starting at 10 am. Sing along and watch at www.youtube.com/user/mtzionch. Viewers are also encouraged to have juice & bread on hand to participate in virtual communion at the end of the service.
We are unsure when regular on-site services will be resumed. Check back for updates.
April 10 – Unfortunately, the joint-church Community Good Friday service that was scheduled to be held in the Armory, then re-scheduled to be held online, has been canceled for this year. The pastors felt there was not enough lead time to coordinate how to conduct the service effectively between multiple speakers and worship teams.
April 12 – Easter Sunday?? Probably online… Breakfast before the service?? Probably cancelled… Check back for updates!
April 19 – No PotBless meal this month! (Next PotBless meal will be May 17??)
