A memorial service for former Pastor John Pearce was held during out Sunday church service at the Barnegat Light Pavilion at 9am, September 19th.
It is with sadness that we announce the death of Zion's former pastor, the Reverend John Pearce. Pastor John came to Zion as a young pastor straight out of seminary 30 years ago. With a small but courageous congregation behind him Zion thrived and grew through the years under his leadership. Confirmation Class, Bible Study, First Communion with Pot lucks and bazaars. In 2015 Pastor John returned to Zion to preach at our 75th Anniversary Celebration.. What a great day that was for him and for all of us at Zion. Noted for his great sermons, his love for the Pinelands ( he authored a 500 page book about the history of the Pinelands) and a great religious presence to the whole Barnegat Light Community. Known around town as "Pastor John", he made a difference for so many in our community. He initiated the "Blessing of the Fleet" community celebration and so many other outreach ministries that Zion was about in those years. His picture has long hung in our fellowship hall. Dressed in his green vestments, looking over us one and all as we came and went from our Zion Church home and enjoying the life we share together in Christ. It was 12 years ago or so that Pastor John retired from Zion. He moved south to Georgia where he served on occasion as supply pastor and finally moved to Florida. He passed away in a Nursing Home that he has lived in for the past two years. He died peaceably in the company of his friends and caregivers. Let us remember Pastor John for all that he did to grow our church over the years. It seems like we have lost so many of the pillars of Zion these past two years, yet we stand still on solid ground in faith in Our Lord Jesus Christ!
