Children's MinistryWelcome 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 “Zion Kids”!
Zion Kids is a multifaceted ministry for children from birth through Grade 5 and their families! During these challenging times, children and families are experiencing disruptions to their normal routines, and coping with ever-changing responsibilities. Through it all, our goal is for kids and families to know that:
- God loves you, God comforts you, and God gives you courage!
- Your church family loves you, too! We miss your smiles, hugs and laughter! We’re praying you’re all staying safe and healthy and finding unexpected blessings!
- And, we will provide simple, fun and meaningful ways for your family to continue to grow in your faith!
We hope we’ll be together soon, but for your safety this fall, Zion Kids ministries will not be meeting in our building. Since you can’t come to us, we’re bringing the Gospel to YOU in new, easy and encouraging ways. We have LOTS of options for you to connect with us, each other, and our best friend, Jesus! Look through our unconventional but exciting ministries. and stay tuned! (Literally, because almost all of these options feature technology!)
God’s Peace from your Children’s Ministry Team!
