Last Tuesday Zion staff had their Annual Planning Meeting. It was a day to reflect on the achievements of each ministry and looking ahead into the new year.
Thank you to those who attended the second Islamic Christian Dialog this past Sunday. It was a great time for conversation, food and fellowship.
