How can I grow at Zion?

Our church is not a place for spectators.  Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandparent, middle age or college age, we want you to be a part of our church community. Here are ways to GROW at Zion.

Zion Kids (K-6 grade)

Zion Youth meets every Sunday at 10 am in the Church Library.
At Zion, we want all 7th and 8th graders to feel at home continuing to build a relationship with Jesus.  That’s why Zion Youth is open to all junior high students.  Students will learn about Scripture and the church as well as world religions and social justice.
