A Joyful New Year!!!

My dear Zion Memorial Missionary Baptist Church Family, I am typing this message to you less than an hour before the new year of 2020 will begin. In a little while, my family and I will kneel together and pray in the new year with hearts expecting for God to bless us greatly in 2020 as He did in 2019. While it would be common to wish you a Happy New Year, I think, as a Christian, it may be more appropriate to pray that you will have a Joyful New Year. I believe that we have all had our share of things that have made us happy or unhappy in 2019; but, through it all, while happiness may have ebbed and flowed like the waves on the sea, our joy should be persistent through it all. The joy that

Watch Night At Noon Worship Service

My Zion Memorial Church Family, It was such a joy to see so many of you at worship service yesterday. I pray that our coming together is always a blessing for you. I want to encourage each of you to come together as a church family tomorrow as we celebrate Watch Night at noon. We will sing, testify and praise God for His blessings bestowed upon us in 2019 and thank Him for what He is going to do in, through and for us in 2020. Greater is ahead of us. I hope and pray that, if possible, you will come and be with us. If not possible, please lift us up in prayer at the noon time hour as we will also be praying for you in your absence. Also, as always, I encourage you to invite someone to be w

CAYA Sunday

Beloved, I am excited about seeing those of you who will be in town on Sunday morning for worship service starting with Sunday School at 9:30. As a reminder, it is fifth Sunday and is therefore a CAYA (Come As You Are) Sunday. I encourage you to come casual and to invite family and friends to come with you. Maybe you can wear something new that you got for Christmas. It is the last Sunday of 2019. Let us usher it out by ushering in a worship service giving our God praise, honor and glory in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ, as guided by the Holy Spirit. Also, please do not forget to come out on Tuesday for our Watch Night At Noon worship service. Rather than waiting unti

Merry Christmas!!!

Beloved, As I wrote to you last Wednesday, if God so allowed, I would send you a message on this day, Christmas Day. Thank you Lord for allowing me to see another day, another Christmas Day. No one else is up in my house right now. I am the first to rise as is typically the case. My children are all now teenagers and young adults. So, they do not rise and run around the house like they used to do when they were much younger. I can recall my many Christmas Days spent in Chattanooga, Tennessee with my Aunt Alma (my great-aunt), Uncle June (my great-uncle), Daddy (what we called my grandfather), Aunt Lin (my mother's sister), Uncle Jimmy (my mother's brother), my mom (Alma who was named aft

We celebrated and were celebrated.

Church Family, I hope and pray me email finds you well. I am enjoying my time away with family but I so miss my ZMMBC Family and look forward to seeing you on Sunday. I found this article and wanted to share it with you. https://www.wschronicle.com/2019/12/local-church-celebrates-75th-anniversary/ Our celebration has been celebrated. Be blessed, Rev. Cain

What Happens When You Show Up

Beloved, We are exactly one week away from Christmas. We have had an awesome weekend of celebration of 75 years of God leading and guiding Zion Memorial as a church family. We are blessed. Now, we get to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ. When Jesus showed up, even beforehand, everything began to change. The world changed. People changed. History changed. Love changed. Hope changed. Expectations changed. When Jesus showed up, everything changed. Now, change can be a painful thing for those who have grown comfortable with things staying the same; but, if we are to be Christ-like, if when He showed up, things changed, then when we show up, things should also


Beloved, We are on the cusp of the 75th Church Anniversary banquet and worship service on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. God has done a mighty work through the faithful at Zion Memorial and we should be overjoyed to celebrate. So, we will be overjoyed and we will celebrate. But, it is not the passage of time that we truly should celebrate. No, it is the passage of time that is leading to the day that will come, the day when our Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ, returns. You see beloved, you have a destiny. I Thessalonians 5:1-2, 9 tells us, "Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers and sisters, you do not need to have anything written to you. For you yourselves know very w

Update on recent church events

Church Family, I want to update you on a couple of church events that have occurred and will be upcoming. Yesterday was a great day for Zion Memorial. 75th Church Anniversary Chairperson Shaketa Rorie and I had the opportunity to speak on the church's behalf on The Light radio station with Anita "Boss Lady" Dean-Arnette. Those who listened in gave encouraging words that things went well and I believe the church should be pleased. In that vein, I want to encourage the church family to come out with great support of the Anniversary Choir concert tomorrow evening at the church beginning at 6pm. The Youth Choir of many years ago will be singing as well as our own Youth Choir in addition to a

Happy In Jesus Christ!!!

Beloved, I hope and pray that your Thanksgiving holiday was truly a day of thanksgiving as we know that every day should be. I enjoyed time with family and friends while also thinking of you, my beloved Zion Memorial Missionary Baptist Church family. We spent some time remembering our loved ones who have transitioned to the other side of glory and we celebrated the recent homegoing of my father, our first Thanksgiving without him. Some of the things that we go through in life give us opportunities for celebration as well as opportunities for reflection. In this Christmas season, I hope and pray that we will celebrate Jesus Christ, reflect on Jesus Christ and be happy in Jesus Christ. The Ap
