Following Jesus wherever we are
The church where no stranger needs to feel strange.
Worship Service is a joyful spirtual occasion.
Worship service at Mt. Zion perhaps can best be characterized as one that has evolved into the right mixture of a tradition and contemporary style. The church's motto "A church where no stranger needs to feel strange" rings true in the worship service. The worshiper who responds by sitting quietly, or one who responds by the waving of a hand,or the shedding of a tear is just as comfortable as one who responds more jubilantly with an audible a-men, or one who rises to his or her feet. A typical worship service at Mt. Zion is one and a half hours in duration.
