The Hospitality Staff served a very delicious meal between the AM and PM service. During the AM service, Pastor Dickerson gave a great reminder to the members. He suggested that we read the front cover of the bulletin which states “The Friendly Church where the Neighborhood becomes a Brotherhood”. He stated that we should be more open to those in the neighborhood and remind ourselves of what Union Zion has stood for, for 144 years.
