CORNELIUS, N.C. -- Mt. Zion UMC raised a whopping $2,628 to provide Strength for Service to God and Country books for members of the armed services at a September 11 service.
The 1,600-member congregation also gave 160 books to local police officers, fire fighters and emergency medical technicians, and they gave 100 copies to the USO of North Carolina.
On Sunday, November 13, the church honored military veterans and invited them to a lunch.
“Those at Mt. Zion UMC responded to this wonderful ministry as we recognize and pray for those who serve others all to the glory of God,” said the Rev. Tim Reimer, associate pastor.
