Zion's House of Blessings Dedication
Our hosting congregation, Zion Baptist Church , will be blessing the opening of our third transitional home after their 10:30 church service (around 12:30). Zion Baptist, one of our hosting congregations, has renovated and fully furnished one of their properties in the heart of Marietta. This will serve as a transitional residence for a family who was once homeless. This renovation has been a true labor of love! Please join us for their church service and then a tour of the house.
