ZHBC Emergency Response
Dear Church Family,
I pray you are well, safe and in good spirits. We are embarking upon a time of uncertainty in our nation, but we are CERTAIN of the God we serve, His Power over evil, and His Love for us!
The attached PDF file is an official statement from ZHBC leadership and it should cover any of your outstanding questions about the operation of our church facility and how our worship services will be conducted going forward. Each Sunday Service, first through fourth, will be offered at 11:00am by conference call. Sis. Niya Bates is working to get us on via video conference soon. Your pastor wishes to share encouraging words, scripture and lessons via Facebook Live soon.
Please know that your pastor and officers are here to support you and your family. Please feel free to share other email addresses of family and friends who may want to dial into the sermons.
We are all in this together.
Rev. Carolyn Mitchell Dillard
