Zion Fellowship Hall Renovation Project

We have opened the Fellowship Hall and the Church!  We happily returned to our church Sanctuary and Fellowship Hall for the 10am services beginning on Easter Sunday. The Fellowship Hall is now open and ready for our Sunday school and all other activities.  We continue to collect contributions for this, the largest project that we have undertaken in many years.  Click GIVE above to make a contribution.
