Mt. Zion's Mask Policy Update


Starting on Sunday, 8/8/21, Mt. Zion is requiring masks to be worn when inside the building. 

In light of the increase in COVID cases due to the delta variant, the CDC recommendations, and the vulnerability of our children who cannot get the vaccine, we will be requiring masks (regardless of vaccination status) while inside the building during worship service and other functions. 

Those who are on the platform talking or singing will be able to take off their masks. We ask everyone to love their neighbor enough to wear a mask.

The church will continue to provide masks for those who may need one. We have sanitizing stations throughout the church and we've installed a new air filtration system. 

Do not let this cause you to be too fearful to come back to church services and to minister to those inside and outside the church. As A.W. Tozer said, "A frightened world needs a fearless Church". We will continue to be wise and take necessary safety precautions but we will not operate with a spirit of fear (which does not come from God). 

We will continue to review what's happening and make updates as needed. Let’s continue to be vigilant in our personal safety measures (masks, washing/sanitizing hands, teaching our children good hygiene practices, etc., and please consider taking the vaccine) and pray for God’s protection over our families, church family, and others and His mercy to end this pandemic.

Your under-shepherds,

Elder Willie Harris, Jr.

Gone Fishing

Mark 1:17 (NIV): "Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men." This is a serious call, one that demands our attention. If the command is to follow Jesus and He will make us fishers of men, then if we are not fishing, then we are not following. Have you been fishing lately? Decide to follow Jesus and go fishing (for people) every day! The following poem was shared with me by one of my members: Don't look for me, I've gone fishing Just as my Father said, Reeling in souls for Jesus, Hungry for His Living Bread. I've packed all equipment needed to get the job done. By setting of the sun today, many a soul will be won. I have the fishing pole, my relationship with God. Plenty of line is available, I've studied mighty hard. The bait is packed and plentiful , my experiences in life. The hook is new and strong, the Word of God in Christ The cooler's waiting to be filled, the Church of God you see. The chair a resting plac

20 Lessons from 20 Years of Pastoring

In April 2002, I was installed as the lead pastor of Mt. Zion Church in Cary, NC. Here are 20 lessons I've learned so far. Love people . You have to love people. If you only love to preach but don't love people, don't be a pastor.  Shepherd your family . Your first flock to shepherd is your family. I reduced my meetings when my kids were born because I wanted them to know me as daddy, not Pastor Harris.  Watch your life and doctrine . It's great to have the right doctrine but that doctrine must be lived out. It's hypocrisy to live contrary to the doctrine you're preaching and teaching.  Focus on Character . Your character is more important than your skills as a preacher.  Find joy in pastoring . I find great joy in seeing people grow as disciples of Jesus Christ  Avoid pride . I have to fight against pride to make sure I'm not trying to steal God's glory  Share the load . Pastoring is so much easier with a team of elders. A plurality of elders for the wi
