Mt. Zion Church is blessed with a rich variety of music groups who serve to inspire faith and lead the congregation in the worship of God. Groups meet to rehearse in the music room adjacent to the church sanctuary. Groups are led by the Rev. Paul Zieber, musical director.

The Praise Team leads Mt. Zion in traditional and contemporary worship songs one Sunday a month. Rehearsals are held two Sundays a month at 5:30 pm. Vocalists, percussion, and instrumentalists are welcome.
