News from Mount Zion
Oct 16, 2020
It won't be long now! Our green roof with its white patches will soon be replaced by a new shingled roof. Church Council approved a quote from Premium Roofing Inc of Peterburg to undertake our project. The work will begin in the spring. Premium Roofing was chosen after a robust search of suppliers. Thanks to the members of the roof task group, Richard Brubacher, Reinhold Schuster, Dennis Kuepfer, Kirk Swanson and Bill Gastmeier for their work.
Thank you too to the many of you are making this new roof possible through your generous donations.

In Our Prayers
It is with profound sorrow that I announce the death of Simon, son of Norma Pitt, one of our newer members from Maranatha. Let us uphold Norma and the larger family in our prayers as they go through this time of grief, that God's peace would be real. Let us continue to remember Gwen, Margaret, Willie, and David, in our prayers that they would experience wholeness and relief.
Let us remember all health professionals and government authorities during this time when the number of Covid19 cases are rising in our province.
