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 Kids is a dedicated time for little ones to connect to Jesus.  They will learn about God, the Bible, and building a foundation of worship.  Zion Kids meets every Sunday at 10 am for around 45 minutes to one hour in the church.  They get worship songs, a Bible story, and age appropriate activity led by a loving and supportive volunteer.
