Mount Zion Leadership

 

Our Church thrives because of the energy and style of the people who are a part of our leadership. Here are a few of the people that make our church community special:

Staff:


 

Donna Miller - Choir Director 

 

Donna Miller has been the Choir Director at Mt. Zion since 1980. Her duties include the preparation of special liturgy responses and music for use during the Lenten and Advent seasons, choosing the Service music for the entire year with the help of the Church Life/Worship/Music Committee,  directing the choir and helping to direct the Mt. Zion Kids Christmas Play.

 

 

 Mt. Zion Choir

 The Mt. Zion Choir is a group of enthusiastic singers who practice weekly on Thursday evenings at 7:00 PM. Each Sunday the choir  leads the congregation in hymns and special music during the worship service, with Organist Debbie Drobenak.  The choir also sings for other special events and is invited to sing at other churches for special programs.


One Sunday each month the Mt. Zion choir is joined by several members of our sister church, Upper Bermudian Lutheran, Ground Oak. The choir is on vacation during the months of July, August and some Sundays in September. During these months we have a more casual contemporary worship service with special music guests from other churches or our own parish providing selections in place of an anthem.


If you enjoy praising God with your voice in song, come join us some Thursday evening @ 7:00 PM. No need to be able to read music or be solo material….just a desire to praise God and make a joyful noise.

Mt. Zion Council:

Members of Council meet the third Tuesday of every month to discuss the concerns of the congregation, to approve bills, and to discuss finances, to name a few. Committee reports are presented from the various groups in the church, as well as financial reports from the Treasurer. The pastor reports on the news of the Synod and also news from the monthly Pastors Meetings, which he attends.


Anyone is welcome to attend these meetings to learn what Council is all about or to present an idea for them to consider.


Council members serve a three year term when elected with new elections being held in December when a member(s) is leaving Council.  Membership is open to all church members and new faces are always welcome to join!
