Operation Christmas Child is a long time ministry of Mt Zion. We enjoy collecting items like wash rags, coloring books, crayons, stuffed animals, socks, etc. all year long and then gathering for packing parties in the Fall.
Mt Zion surpassed our goal in 2018. We packed 2000 boxes! Thank you for your help.
Mt Zion realizes that families in and around our community need food. Many children only are fed while they are at school and the Backpack Ministry gathers non-perishable foods to disperse to families in need. This ensure that children and families do not go hungry on the weekends and holidays.
We support education and reading is important to feed the imagination, language and creativity in our children. Our Library Box is located just in front of our sanctuary and At Yesterday's Grill in Snow Camp, NC. Come "Give one take one" or "Borrow and Return" for others to enjoy.
We gather books through out the year, please donate to our cause.
Agape House in Uganda
Two years ago, God brought Joseph and the children of the Agape Orphanage in Uganda into our lives. We reach out in a variety of ways to help our brothers and sisters in the Lord in Uganda, taking up money to help build a new orphanage in Uganda, sewing pillowcase dresses for the girls in the orphanage, and welcoming Joseph to speak at Mt. Zion each time he makes it to the United States. This ministry gets all of our church involved on a global scale, putting into action the words of the book of James, “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” (James 1:27)
Wells in India
Under the guidance and program established by the North Carolina Baptists, we have sponsored a clean, fresh water drinking well in the nation of India. Our first well was dug by the Baptists in May of 2014 and we are currently raising money for our second well to be dug to give people one of the most basic resources that they need.
