Children's Ministry of Zion Lutheran Church
Our Children’s Ministry program connects kids to Jesus, His story of salvation, and His plan in their lives. Each purposeful and engaging Bible lesson is carefully crafted to focus on Christ. Teachers provide multi-sensory lessons and challenge students to learn and grow in their faith through learning, sharing, and servant events. Students look up Bible passages, learn about them, and apply them to daily living. Our team of volunteer teachers loves spending time with students in God’s Word!
Sunday School (Age 3-Grade 5)
Our wonderful volunteer staff will be using curriculum from Concordia Publishing House, which focuses on a Bible lesson and memory verse each week and has supplementary craft, game, mission and snack
ideas. Preschool through 8th grade will meet in the South Sunday School classroom for the large group Opening at 9:30 am. Families are welcome to bring an offering, which supports missions in our community and abroad. Our Jr. High Sunday School program, called 4:12 Student Ministries, meets for Bible study in the youth room downstairs after the Opening. Currently, we are following the “Living the Faith” Bible studies & podcasts, which gives an overview of Luther’s Small Catechism.

Confirmation is a very important part of Christian education in the home and at church, where
you grow in faith, God’s love, and grow in living a Christian life. Our Pre-Confirmation classes study Old and New Testament lessons, while the Confirmation classes study the six Chief Parts of Luther’s Small Catechism (https://catechism.cph.org). Catechisms and all materials are provided at the parent meeting. Students may begin confirmation as early as the 5th grade.
Upon completion of requirements and learning, students participate in The Rite of Confirmation, which is the time when students personally and publicly “confirm” the vows made for them when they were baptized. Students will continue to grow spiritually to understand how God and faith work in our everyday lives in what we say … in what we do … and in how we live. Our staff works to create engaging Christ-centered lessons each week. Parents are highly encouraged to attend!
On Wednesdays from 6:00-7:30 pm, Miss Kaila provides a class for ages four through 4th grade. We learn Bible stories, do crafts, games and activities and have a snack each time we meet. Parents and volunteers are always welcome to attend. Please consider joining us!
