For Parents With Young Children (birth – age 3)
Faith formation starts from birth. Children of all ages are welcome in worship. However, as part of Zion’s continuing faith formation ministry we offer nursery care on Sunday mornings from 8 am to noon for birth to age 5. We also have a cry room at the back of the sanctuary for parents who wish to remain with their children, during worship, but who also may need privacy.
Faith is also formed in the home. In order to support families in faith development monthly resources are sent to any child baptized at Zion until their 3rd birthday.
Furthermore, we offer child care for any gathering or meeting at Zion so that parents of young children can participate and grow in their faith and service.
Periodically we also offer Love and Logic Parenting classes to equip parents in raising healthy, happy, faith filled children.
For Parents With Preschool to Elementary Age Children
In order to create age appropriate learning environment preschool Sunday School for ages 3-5 is helped in the preschool building next door to Zion’s main building.
Children in Kindergarten through 5th grade participate in rotational Sunday School which focuses on one story a month. Each story begins with a intergenerational
Sunday school with parents, grandparents, faith parents and children together so that the story the children learn each week in Sunday School can be reinforced in the home.
For Families With Middle School Children
Our comprehensive confirmation program includes bimonthly gatherings with parents on Sundays from noon – 2. Additionally, youth participate in Sunday Morning Education which reinforces what is being learned in the bimonthly gathering. Confirmation also includes a number of retreats, service opportunities, and fellowship gatherings.
For Families With High School Children
High School Youth participate in Sunday Morning Education which includes various topical studies. Our high school program also include a variety of retreats, mission trips, and fellowship opportunities. See the Youth and family page for more information.
