Mount Zion 150
Mt Zion Missionary Baptist Church in Altoona celebrated their 150th Anniversary. Rev. Keith Moore has served Mt Zion for almost ten years alongside his wife, Rev. Ruth Moore, who is also the Dean of Advancement for our ACTS Christian Education Program. Mt. Zion has a rich history, including being a Station on the Underground Railroad, launching the first Head Start program in Blair County, and being the oldest African-American Church in continuous operation in the County (and one of the oldest in PA). State Senator Judy Ward presented a Citation of Accomplishment, while Altoona Mayor Matthew Pacifico gave Pastor Keith a Key to the City.
