We’re celebrating our new pastor, Roger Kresge, who was assigned to Mt. Zion as Lay Supply Pastor effective July 1, 2018.

Pastor Roger is a Certified Lay Minister in the United Methodist Church, and has been assigned as lay supply pastor of Mt. Zion UMC in Peach Bottom. An active lay preacher, he has provided pulpit supply for a number of churches in the Lancaster area.
