Mount Zion Suburban Apartments
Completed in 1974, Mt. Zion Suburban Apartments consists of two separate 3-story elevator buildings located in the city's northwest sector.
 
As a 221 (d)(3)MIR community, it's LMSA Section 8 contract makes assistance available to eligible very low-income elderly households in all 118 one-bedroom rental apartments.  Each apartment is equipped with range, refrigerator, disposal and air-conditioning.  Most units are carpeted.  All utilities are included in the rent.  Residents of each building enjoy having their own coin-operated laundry facilities and community room. A bus shelter is provided for the convenience of those residents who use the city bus.

Mt. Zion Suburban Apartments provides a bus for monthly trips to local shopping malls and grocery shopping.  Local health organizations offer free screening and medical services at the property periodically throughout the year.

Bus trips in recent years have taken residents to Brown County to enjoy the fall foliage, to Monument Circle for lighting of the Christmas tree, and to other places of interest.  Card and board games, as well as Bible Study are but a few of the other activities in the community rooms. Garden plots are available at the back of the community for those wishing to grow their own vegetables or flowers. 

The highlight of the year is the summer picnic, held in the shade of a huge canopy in the large grassy area between Mt. Zion Suburban's two buildings, that brings all residents, guests and staff together.

Black History month book Review and Study -

The Cross and the Lynching Tree by James H. Cone:

You are invited to read and reflect on this Masterpiece during Black History month through Lent.  I'm hopeful that at the completion of this study, we can visit the Lynching Museum in Montgomery, Alabama as part of our 150 Church Anniversary History Tour.

Some excerpts from the book:

While the lynching tree symbolized white power and "black death", the cross symbolized divine power and "black life" - God overcoming the power of sin and death.

African Americans did not doubt that their lives were filled with trouble.... and agony during the lynching era (1880-1940).  Trouble followed them everywhere.... But in songs like "Nobody Knows",.... sung as "blues" or the "church" version, the last line, "Glory Hallelujah" speaks of hope that trouble would not sink them into permanent despair.  "Nobody knows the trouble I see, Nobody but Jesus.... Glory Hallelujah"....: The source of hope is Jesus, for he is a friend who knows about the trouble of little ones and is the reason for their Hallelujah.

I hope and pray you (late teens, young adults to seniors) will join me (Pastor James) for this study and reflection beginning 1st Sunday February.  Please see Minister Britt to order your book & copy of the work booklet.

Review/Study Dates - 1st Sunday February through Palm Sunday: 8:45am Church; 12:15pm Renaissance Center - Blue Room


2017-18 Theme:  “Saved to Love”

GOAL:  Develop a Culture of Love for Each Other

Scriptures to meditate on, memorize and implement through 2018

     Leviticus 19:17-18

     Mark 12:28-34

     Luke 10:25-28

     Deuteronomy 6:1-9

     Micah 6:8

How does this look like in practice?

How do we internalize this Love that God requires of us?

How do we express it externally?

What does Love look like as it is practiced in the ministries?

Love in the congregation, members, and ministries.

                WHAT DOES LOVE MEAN?

You are challenged to pray more, and more earnestly during this first Month of the New Year.  By Prayer God will launch and lift you into the orbit of His Grace needed for the Journey of 2018.
