The Church where Jesus Christ is Lord, and Everybody is Somebody! Mt. Zion’s goal is to ultimately glorify God, build up His church and reach out to His world by connecting and encouraging members, friends and the community. God is faithful, through whom we were called into fellowship with Him.
Spencer UAME Church is a Historical Landmark built before the Civil War. The cemetery contains several marked graves denoting United States Colored Troop Soldiers. Their grave records are located at the church, the Salem County Veterans Services Office, and at African American Civil War Museum in Washington D.C. Spencer UAME Church is one of several churches in Salem County that became a way station for the Underground Railroad, helping runaway slaves escape to freedom. We are listed as a visitor site on the Seven Steps to Freedom Project sponsored by the Salem County Historical Society. As we reflect on the past, we understand that our founder has a desire to teach all people of this community with the message of the Gospel of The Lord Jesus Christ. We recently celebrated our 200 year Anniversary “To God Be the Glory” We also hold a food bank every 3rd Saturday of the month form 9am-1pm.
Young Life is a Christian ministry that reaches out to middle school, high school, and college students in all 50 of the United States and in more than 100 countries around the world. Our Mission is to introduce adolescents to Jesus Christ and help them grow in their faith. Since 1941, we have put caring adults into the lives of kids. We have walked into their world as mentors and friends. Young Life doesn’t start with a program. It starts with adults who are concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. These relationships don’t happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust and consistency.
