We know that Joseph, Mary, and the baby Jesus were in temporary quarters – the more comfortable accommodations were not available to them….The people of Zion can relate to that. Many of you know that on June 6, 2017, our church’s interior was destroyed by fire. Only the outer walls are still standing, so we have been in temporary quarters since then……..We worship in a donated hall on Sundays and our offices are leased in another building. But like Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus, we have everything we need. The community here, other churches far and wide, the North District, and the Desert SW Conference have been generous with support and gifts. And most important of all, we know that God’s love and grace have been with us all the way.
