From Your New Senior Pastor
Dear Church Family, We are so excited about what God is doing at New Zion Baptist Church. What a great time to join with God and be a tool for His glory!! We look forward to being with you on Sunday, March 15, as we begin His ministry together. Please pray for us and for the members of Harmony Baptist Church during this transition time. We have had 18 good years with friends and members. Also pray for God to sell our house, which would be such a great blessing. We are ready to share our lives with each of you as we love each other and minister to each other. Hope to see you on March 15, ready to hear from His Word together. Love ya! Bro. Clark

Our Sunday School has been way up over 200 for the last three Sundays as we prepare for new space. When we get in the new building we will start some new classes. This means we need to train some more workers. I will be preparing a new teacher training class in the near future. Watch out for the sign-up list. Two new Discipleship classes are starting up the first two weeks of March, “The Life Changing Power of Prayer” led by Kenneth Overmier (March 1), and “Surrender: the Heart God Controls” led by Karen Keating (March 8). Get signed up now so you will be ready for the first class. Ken Sterling
