Mt. Zion UMC in Butler open house welcomes large crowd

On Sunday afternoon I attended an open house at Mt. Zion UMC in Butler.

The congregation was founded in 1868 and the building was constructed in 1897. Efforts are underway to restore and revive the church.

The Butler Historic Preservation Commission organized the event that included Butler community band and choir, folks from other area churches, UMC officials, and several past members of the congregation. The service was excellent and every pew was filled, with standing room only.

My dear friend Patricia Jacobs received special honors for her dedication and devotion to her beloved church. It was a glorious afternoon!
