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.

Large and small group activities such Bible games, drama, science experiments, video, cooking, and art projects are designed to fit different learning styles and teach kids the true heart of God.

CrossWalk Kids Choir is for all children in grades K-5. The choir rehearses every Wednesday evening from 5:30-6:10 p.m. and sings during worship generally once a month. Special services include the Christmas Choral Worship and Christmas Eve services, Lenten, Good Friday, Easter, and a special Spring Musical, “Sermon in Song.” Come join this wonderful bunch of young singers as we learn about God’s love, develop our music skills, and have lots of FUN with Zion friends!
