We believe that children are not only the future of the
church, but very much a part of the life of Zion today. Children are welcome at worship and will
enjoy participating in Children’s Sermons.
There are pews set aside in the back of the sanctuary for families with
small children, but we find that many of our young people enjoy sitting up
front where they have a clear view of all the action.
Sunday School runs throughout the school year for children ages 3 through 6th grade, from 9:45-10:45 Sunday mornings at the Christian Education Building (CEB). Both children and adults start the morning off singing a few of our favorite songs together during The Church Gathered. On the second Sunday of each month during Sunday School time, we have Family Worship at the CEB, which is a liturgical service designed specifically for families with children in mind. There are also special worship services for families during the Christmas and Easter seasons.
Children at Zion celebrate First Communion in 4th grade, and Confirmation classes are in 7th and 8th grade. 7th and 8th graders are invited to participate in many of the Youth of Zion events.
A very special experience for our children is Vacation Bible School, which is a week of fun, learning and worship in June.
Zion loves all of our children, and we are sure that your children will love Zion!
