"Grace to you and peace from God our
Father and the Lord Jesus Christ."
Philippians 1: 2
As I write this article for the February newsletter, it is only the last half of January. The annual meeting will soon be history and you will have in your hands the reports for 2018.
Having completed another year and looking towards the hopes and promises of this new year, I am conscious of the words of St. Paul, written in his letter to the Philippians. Paul is grateful for their "partnership in the Gospel."
He is aware that the Church of Jesus Christ is founded on one individual, Jesus Christ, but extremely conscious of the fact that growth only occurs with many.
I, too, thank Almighty God for our partnership in the Gospel of Jesus Christ here at Zion United Church of Christ. You have shown throughout the years a strength, a zeal, a love for building up the Body of Christ: The Church. I am sincerely grateful for each and every member and friend of Zion who so faithfully pitch in and work so hard to make Zion a viable and vital Church of Jesus Christ.
I believe we are poised for great and wonderful things in 2019. I pray that we all continue to keep up the Spirit - Keep up the energy and enthusiasm and most of all - Keep up the Faith and Zeal for Zion.
"Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ."
In Peace and Love,
