ZION NEWZ…

Month of  October 2019

Celebration Notice!!
We pray that you are having a fantastic week so far.  As many of you know on Sunday, October 27th, we were planning to have a big FISH FRY in celebration of 35 extraordinary years of ministry with Pastors Freddie and Marsha Piphus.  Unfortunately, we will need to cancel the festivities.  It is with a heavy heart we share the passing of Pastor Piphus’s aunt.  Arrangements are scheduled for Sunday, October 27th in Tennessee.  Please lift Pastor and family up in prayer during their time of bereavement.

You are welcome to bring your monetary gifts of love to our regularly scheduled services through Sunday, November 10th.  We will acknowledge Pastors Freddie and Marsha at a later date that has yet to be determined.
