Message From The Pastor

Dr. Ernest R. Flores, Pastor
Zion Baptist Church of Ambler, PA


The Pastor’s Message

Grace and Peace To You, Zion!  As the coronavirus crisis continues across the globe, Zion will follow the model of Paul and Silas in Acts 16. When they couldn’t get to church, they continued to Pray, Praise and Proclaim the gospel message. All the ministry Paul and Silas did in that chapter was NOT within the four walls of a church.  Be encouraged, Zion: Wherever we are, WE ARE THE CHURCH.  “And the gates of hell shall not prevail against it…” Matthew 16:18

We’re going to be creative in ministry through this crisis.  The Zion Prayer Line, our church website, the church’s Facebook Live and our new video conference room Zoom will be used extensively.
Here is the information for each:

Here is Zion’s schedule until further notice:
  • Pastor Flores is calling the church to a Season of Daniel Prayer, 3 times a day, every day.  Call in to the Zion Prayer Line at the following times:  8:00 a.m. with Dr. J, 1:00 p.m. with Minister Ellison, and 7:00 p.m. with Pastor Flores.
  • Wednesday Noonday Prayer will be on the Prayer Line at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday led by Minister Ellison and the Associate Ministers.
  • Wednesday evening Bible Study will be on Facebook Live on the church’s Facebook page and on the Prayer Line at 7:15 p.m. with Pastor Flores leading and the Associate Ministers preaching.
  • Sunday morning worship service will be at 11:30 a.m. on Facebook Live and on the Prayer Line with Pastor Flores preaching.  The worship service will be uploaded to the church’s website as soon as possible, and to the church’s YouTube channel.  The upload usually is done within a day.
Here are some final ideas to continue to be the church during a crisis:
  • Check in on each other via phone, email, text, etc…
  • Call the pastor at 267-784-8606 or your Deacon with any questions
  • Get involved with the Prayer Line and Facebook Live ministries.
  • Stay flexible; we will be coming up with new ways to do things like communion, 7 Last Words, etc…. We’re going to get through it because the word says, “If God is for us, who can be against us?” Romans 8:31.
