How Do You Want To Be Remembered?
My Zion Memorial Church Family, What joy it brought me to be with so many of you on Sunday in God's house, our house. I enjoyed our time with Bluestone but there is nothing like worshiping with my own church family in our house. It is in our house that we come together to worship. It is in our house that we come together to fellowship. It is in our house that we come together to show our love for God and each other. It is in our house that we receive revelation from God t
Don't Know What To Do? Ask God...And Believe Him!
Beloved, I am still reveling in the afterglow of our time together with our Bluestone cousins. I was blessed. Reverend Dennis said that he and his congregation were blessed. I pray that all of you who came were blessed. Each time, before I preach, I pray. I ask God to help me to do what God would have me to do that will please God the most. I ask and I trust that my prayers will be answered and whatever God gives me, in that moment, is what God would want me to have to d

Being Strong For Someone Else
Beloved, First, thank you to all who made it out last night for the community meeting with Councilman Derwin Montgomery. It was a first step and, prayerfully, not the last. For those who did not make it, thank you for your prayers. We made some progress that will, hopefully, lead to more progress. We are striving to be a community church that desires to make a difference for God on behalf of those in the immediate community of Zion Memorial and not simply a church in the

Problems Everywhere? So Are The Solutions Of God!
Beloved, How wonderful it was to see so many of you on Sunday and what a blessed day it was!!! We got to see two young men get baptized. Both had given their lives to Christ at Vacation Bible School. Thank God for giving us that teaching ministry and for us continuing to let ourselves be used in His service to bring the lost to Christ. We also extended the right hand of fellowship to three members, two returning to Zion Memorial. Finally, we had one person come forth to
