Update 5/20

 

We will be gathering for church this weekend! We’ve missed you! We want to be as safe as possible as we get back together for services so here’s a breakdown of what we will be doing:
 
•If you are in an at-risk demographic, have potential symptoms or are uncomfortable gathering at this time we encourage you to stay home and join us for church online (Sun 9 AM).
 
•Services: Sat 5 PM, Sun 9 & 10:30 AM. The Sun 10:30 AM service will take place outside in the parking lot. Please bring your own chairs. If we are expecting rain, we will move that service to 11 AM inside to allow our cleaning team to sanitize the sanctuary. The 9 AM service will be live-streamed on our YouTube channel and at mtzn.com/stream. This service will be posted immediately following the 9 AM service and will be able to be viewed at your convenience.
 
•We will not be offering MTZN kids and nursery children’s ministry at this time
 
•We will be putting bags over the chairs that will be disposed of following each service in the sanctuary
 
•For the services in the sanctuary we will be requiring masks for the singing portion of the service. Though masks are not 100% effective this will lessen the spread of particles and the distance they would be spread without a mask. If you do not want to wear a mask, we invite you to the 10:30 AM service (outside) or to sing to yourself and instead of out loud. We encourage you to bring your own mask but, in the case, you do not have one we will have a limited amount available. We will also be singing fewer songs than we normally do for the time being.
 
•Please keep 6 feet minimum social distancing and we strongly encourage you to refrain from hugging, shaking hands, and touching others.
 
•We will not be providing coffee or snacks between services at this time.
 
•We will have a capacity of 100-120 at each indoor service (depending on the number of families attending). In the event you come, and the service is at capacity we would encourage you to join our online service or come to the next service.
 
Thank you for helping us be safe!
 
See you in church and online!

Update 3/17

Hello Mt. Zion,

Our church leadership has made the decision to comply with the government’s recommendations on gatherings. This means that we will not be having services this Wednesday, Saturday, or Sunday. We will be having services online. We will continue to monitor this week by week based on the government and CDC’s recommendations.

– Wednesday Night: All classes will be available in online format. Matt and Ryan will post a Colossians video, Dave Goralski will be posting links to the “New Kid By Friday” lesson and materials, and Pastor Dave will be doing a Facebook live video(!) on 1 Kings in which you can post questions and comments as he teaches the class. This will all be available on our Facebook page or on our website (http://mtzn.com/portfolio/wednesday-night-ministry/) at 6:30 PM on Wednesday.

– Weekend Services: We will be streaming services at the normal service times (Sat 5 PM, Sun 9 & 10:30 AM) on our Facebook page(Mt Zion Christian Church) and at mtzn.com/stream. We will have worship and a message available. The sermon outline will be available on the YouVersion Bible app( launch app- click “more”- click “events” and select Mt. Zion).

– Communication: If you have a need and are in a small group, please reach out to your small group leader and they can get in contact with us if they are unable to help. If you are not part of a small group or have a pressing need, please call the church office (262-248-7097) during our regular hours (M-F 8AM-3PM). If we don’t pick up or you call after hours please LEAVE A MESSAGE. We will get back to you.

– MTZN Kids: Follow our daily connection challenge on Youtube (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCO14H04vzCgERRXN1Np6CBA).

– MTZN Youth: Follow along for youth services and updates at the MTZN Youth Facebook or Instagram page. Parents email Riley (Riley@mtzn.com) to get connected into the parent’s Facebook group. Wed services will be online and posted at 7:30PM on these social-media sites.

– Food Pantry: We will have regular food pantry hours this week. We also expect an increase in families needing food. We are asking for donations to prepare for this. If you can donate non-perishable food items, please bring them by the church at anytime. We will have bins by the front doors under the car port. Thank you!

– Small Groups: Feel free to meet in small groups if you feel comfortable. Please obey the gathering size recommendations (10) and be smart if you are in an at-risk demographic.

– Online giving: https://pushpay.com/g/mtzncc or you can mail a check to Mt. Zion Christian Church 2330 Hwy 120 Lake Geneva, WI 53147

– Prayer: We encourage you to pray with your small groups and your families. We expect God to move in a mighty way!

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Tim 1:7

We are not afraid! We are told in James 1:27, “Pure, unstained religion, according to God our Father, is to take care of orphans and widows when they suffer and to remain uncorrupted by this world.” If cautionary steps mean we are helping to potentially save the lives of others, then that’s obedience on our part. We’re not scared… but we don’t have a right to treat it as though it’s not a threat to those we can protect and have a duty to care for.

Remember YOU are the church!
