Mt. Zion United Methodist Church is a church with a great past but believes its greatest days lie ahead.
In 2003, the church began working on its vision for the future.
This exciting vision came from a pastoral and laity team seeking to discern and articulate God's dream for Mt. Zion United Methodist Church and her future. The exciting strategic planning document has become a wonderful roadmap to the future for the church.
The Mt. Zion Building Committee has been assigned to developing plans for implementing the needs of the church that has been cultivated through the prayers and research of the last ten years. They meet monthly and report to the Administrative Board.
Included in the wide range of exciting plans for the future, this group is developing plans for the Senior Campus (just 1/4 mile south of the church on Zion Avenue) and the Main Church Campus.
In addition to the skilled care facility which has already opened on the Senior Campus, the rest of the property has been rezoned. Soon, the Senior Campus Board hopes to complete the plans that are two-fold: senior housing and the building of a Senior Ministry Center.
Current plans include development for residential housing (24 independent "quad" homes and an 80 unit apartment-style complex. The housing option development will provide for the building of a Senior Ministry Center, owned and operated by Mt Zion as an outreach to the whole community.
On the main campus, the Building Committee is developing plans for the best combination of pressing needs for the church's growing program. Those include accessible facilities, additional education and meeting space, additional space for nursery and our growing children's and music programs.
Worship space expansion and flexibility is important for our growing church in a growing area. Because of needs across the wide range of life at Mt. Zion, the Building Committee has developed a Master Plan for growth. As plans are developed, they will be refined and adapted by congregational input and support.
