Mt. Zion United Methodist Church in Georgetown is the oldest black congregation in the city.
For more than a century, Mount Zion United Methodist Church was a cornerstone of Georgetown's predominantly black community. But over the years, the neighborhood has changed, and congregants have dispersed to other parts of the city and region. Still, many worshipers travel a long way to come back and participate in Sunday services. Jessica Gould attended a service to speak with members about what keeps drawing them to this local landmark and brings us this audio postcard.
