I am a God of mercy, and it is not My will that you be too hard on yourself for missing the mark of perfection. Yes, make corrections that are necessary, but you must learn to be lenient and compassionate even with yourself. Give yourself a break.

´╗┐Psalm 86:15 But You, O Lord, are a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering and abundant in mercy and truth.

 Words of Encouragement

"I am the vine and you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will bear much fruit: for you can do nothing without me. Those who do not remain in me are thrown out like a branch and dry up; such branches are gathered up and thrown into the fire, where they are burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, then you will ask for anything you wish, and you shall have it. My Father's glory is shown by you bearing much fruit; and in this way you become my disciples. I love you just as the Father loves me; remain in my love."

St. John 15:5-9 (Good News Translation)

2023 Annual Fund Raiser – Thank you for your gifts! 

Submitted by Trustee Larry Goodwyn

We are grateful for the gifts that we received into the store house this past year. We will surely put them to good use as we strive to continue doing Gods work. 

Although we did not generate the same dollars as in previous years, we still did well. Our goal for 2023 is to continue receiving mail in donations and honoring God through our obedience to give. If the God we serve says so, we will get back on track as we march forward into the 2023.

The Pastor and the church leadership would like to thank all those who continue to bless this branch of Zion with their generous support.  We will continue to give back $1.00 per day for each day that God has blessed us with.  Our goal this year is $10,000.00.



A lady was driving along with her father.
They came upon a storm, and the young lady asked her father, What should I do?"

He said "keep driving"..  Cars began to pull over to the side, the storm was getting worse.  

"What should I do." The young lady asked?
"Keep driving," her father replied.

On up a few feet, she noticed that eighteen wheelers were also pulling over.  She told her dad, "I must pull over, I can barely see ahead.  It is terrible, and everyone is pulling over!"  

Her father told her, "Don't give up, just keep driving!"

Now the storm was terrible, but she never stopped driving, and soon she could see a little more clearly. After a couple of miles she was again on dry land, and the sun came out.

Her father said, "Now you can pull over and get out."

She said "But why now?"  

He said "When you get out, look back at all the people that gave up and are still in the storm,
because you never gave up your storm is  now over.

This is a testimony for anyone who is going through "hard times".

Just because everyone else, even the strongest, gives up.
You don't have to...if you keep going,
soon your storm will be over and the sun will shine upon your face again.

Never give up, because GOD will never give up on you!

"I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me!"
