The Ever Ready Club
An organizational meeting was held at the old Mount Zion A.M.E. Zion Church, on the third Sunday in February 1925. The meeting was composed of a group of faithful ladies on a mission for a new and much needed ministry; hence the Ever Ready Club of Mount Zion A.M.E. Zion Church was formed. One of the original senior ladies, Mrs. Susie Watson, remains a faithful and dedicated member to this day.
This ministry has faithful members with new ideas and a commitment to carry on its ministry.
Scholarship and Educare Ministry
Twenty-one years ago the scholarship ministry began when Mrs. Annie S. Thomas, a previous Sunday School Superintendent, suggested to Reverend Claude A. Shuford, the idea of having a banquet to raise money for graduating seniors. From their first efforts every graduating senior received a monetary donation. This ministry reached new levels and plateaus very quickly. Today, the scholarship has awarded over seventy-thousand dollars to Mount Zion members. .
The Educare Ministry began about seven years ago. Reverend Robert Felder offered the suggestion that all persons attending college should be eligible. Thus, Educare was born and remains a viable ministry. Each Mount Zion applicant receives a minimum of three-hundred dollars a year. Today, the Educare ministry is funded through the efforts of the scholarships ministry. It is a blessing!
