Acknowledgment of Territory

We begin today’s service with an acknowledge of the traditional territory upon which we gather physically & virtually. 

For many thousands of years the Anishinabe, Hodenoshone and Neutral peoples have sought to walk gently on this land. 

They offered assistance to the first European travellers to this territory, and shared their knowledge for survival in a sometimes harsh climate.     We seek a new relationship with the Original people of this land, one based in honour and deep respect.

Here's How to Worship with our Mount Zion community

A note from Pastor Philip  June 25, 2020

We are moving closer to the relaxation of restrictions and entering Stage 3 of the province’s reopening schedule.  It has been reported that Waterloo Region was among the first to advance to Stage 2, given how we were able to control the spread of Covid19 here.

More than anything else what I hear that folks are thrilled about is getting that long due hair cutting or dressing done!!  That desire to look good and be comfortable in that seems to be an innate desire in us all!!  Yes, it is indeed good to be free of some of the restrictions, but we should not let our guard down, we need to continue to be vigilant and keep up the practices of hand washing, wearing masks and social distancing so that the next wave does not become unmanageable. We may not like doing some of these but as Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton of the ELCA put it, “If you don't like it, do it anyway. As with all ritual, your practise will shape you --and your world-- and may even save someone's life!”

The Synod has issued suggestions for consideration as we plan to reopen.  The Mount Zion taskforce are already working, along with others, on how we as a congregation could transition back to safe and meaningful worship at church, whenever that is.  We wish that things went back to normal but do we want a normal that looked the same as before? Or, could we usher in a new normal that also takes into consideration the vulnerable and weak in health and those socially and economically marginalized?  A normal that is not centered on ourselves but on the wellbeing of all.

Mount Zion's building and office remains closed until September. Read more
