Please watch your mail, Grace Notes, and announcements for information on Mt Zion's 2022 Stewardship Appeal, which starts Sept 26 and goes through Nov 7. Appeal Commitment Sunday is Oct 24, and Celebration Sunday is November 7.
Guided by our new mission to Joyfully Grow Disciples in Christ, our overarching goal for 2022 is to better engage our members and newcomers into our ministry. The stewardship committee has organized proposed ministry initiatives around Mt Zion’s “Marks of Discipleship.” When we practice these marks of discipleship, we grow in faith and are essential to accomplishing Jesus’ Great Commission. Our proposed ministry initiatives will help all of us joyfully grow as disciples in Christ.
