Last month’s Zion News article was entitled “Standing Firm on God’s Holy Word”. It highlighted that all scripture is God-breathed, the Word is alive, and the Spirit is at work in our lives.
In the day in which we live, not all local churches believe that the Bible is the final authority in our lives. Last year, Mount Zion Road Church made a commitment that compromising the Word will not be tolerated. As evidence of that decision, we selected our church slogan: ‘Standing Firm on God’s Holy Word.’ Ephesians 6:11 says: “Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.” 1 Corinthians 16:13 says: “Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.” And Philippians 4:1 reads: “Therefore, my beloved brethren whom I long to see, my joy and crown, in this way stand firm in the Lord, my beloved.” How blessed are we to know that God loves us so much that He gave us specific instruction so that we do not stumble on worldly things that are in direct contrast with scripture!
“Celebration Sunday” is scheduled for Sunday, September 20, 2020. We are recognizing who we are as a congregation at MZR and what we believe in. This is an outreach effort that also serves as an announcement to the local community. It’s an invitation for local people to join us for worship and a fellowship meal immediately following. The outreach theme is “Start a New Season.” In a sense, MZR has already started a new season after the separation from the denomination and in light of the history of this church as a whole. This ‘new season’ can also be seen as a chance for those in our local community to make a decision to come to worship and hear the truth of God’s Word. We pray a blessing on this effort that a seed is planted, lives are changed, and that Jesus will be glorified. Romans 10:14: “How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching?” Brandon
Congratulations to out Graduate!
Congratulations to our 2020 graduate Eric! He graduated from Lebanon County CTC in Industrial Machining with an “Excellence Award” and “Rotary Student of the Month Award” and Northern Lebanon High School “Magna Cum Laude” and is employed at Lebanon Tool Co./PRL Industries (which makes military parts). He started there in his Junior year recommended by his instructor as an intern and continued on through his Senior year and is now hired full-time. He loves working on the lathe and milling machines and helping with quality control. He fills his “free time” building, inventing or fixing anything and everything in the shop at the farm; operating equipment and helping with field work; working on his ATV or his reconditioned 1978 Ford; and hanging out with friends, line dancing and spending time with his girlfriend. May God bless you in life’s journey.
