Children's Ministry

Welcome To The Children’s Ministry at Zion Lutheran Church.

Our heart’s desire is to introduce children to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the life changing power of his Gospel of grace. Jesus said, “Let the children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 19:14). We want to make disciples of children who are transformed by the Gospel and learning to serve Christ, others, and the world.

Welcome to the Children’s Ministry Page!

Kid City Sunday School – A Place to SHINE!

Classes start September 17!

Kid City is Sunday school for kids, from Age 3-Grade 5! We meet during the school year from 10-10:50 a.m. At Kid City, we equip kids to learn about Jesus’ love and to share it, like the shining city on a hill described by Jesus!

Kid City is a welcoming place! Help us welcome your children by registering in advance. More information will be available early August in the Life Together bulletin insert, the weekly E-Update and the CYF E-Newsletter. Brochures will be available at the church as well.

Kid City is a congregational effort! With each baptism, we promise to help parents raise their children in the Christian faith. How can you help? We need teachers, classroom assistants, supply organizers, musicians, greeters and registration volunteers. To help, contact Ann Campbell at 763-506-8119, acampbell@zionanoka.org.
