Hope in the midst of darkness
Beloved Church Family, I missed you on Sunday and, due to the weather, it appears that some missed coming together as a church family. Irregardless of the storms, we are a church family and I am prayerful that all who can will be with us on this upcoming Sunday that some call Easter Sunday and others call Resurrection Sunday. In Easter Sunday, we have the hope of the dawning of a new season, Spring, coming out of the cold and sometimes dreary season of Winter. It is how the
Happy Palm Sunday - He’s Coming Back
Beloved Zion Memorial Church Family, I was up early this morning and literally saw the breaking of a new day. It made me think of Jesus on Palm Sunday as well as our upcoming Resurrection Sunday and the day when He will return forevermore. It reminded me that regardless of the storms in life that we may see and how dark the night may be, He is always coming for us. These pictures, step by step, show light coming out of darkness. I pray that as you live your daily lives that
He Did It Before! He Will Do It Again!

If You Heard God, What Would You Do?
Beloved, I pray that my email finds you knowing that you are blessed because you are blessed. If you have received Jesus the Christ as your Lord and Savior, you are already blessed beyond what you deserve. I know that I am and I pray that you do as well.

Sometimes God can speak
Is it of God? If so, hold on and hold out.
Beloved, We have had a full time at Zion Memorial over the course of the last couple of weeks. We had a phenomenal trip down to Haymount Presbyterian two Sundays ago with a spirited worship service. We had a joyous Youth Summit this past weekend with bowling on Friday, informative speakers on Saturday and a great speaker on Sunday. Topping it off, we had someone, Imani Pressley, give their life to Christ on Sunday. Hallelujah!!! Also, on Saturday, we celebrated the wedding
