Children’s Ministry


Zion Kids serves children ages 3-5th grade. As a partnership with families, we are here to facilitate learning about God’s love, serving others, and growing in a community.

We believe:

  • Everyone has a place at the table
  • Relationships with others are part of our faith journey
  • Baptismal promises shape our lives

God’s Peace from your Children’s Ministry Team!

Kid City Sunday School: (Ages 3 – Grade 5)

Jesus tells us to be a city on hill…and to let God’s light shine for all to see! At Kid City Sunday School, kids from age 3-Grade 5 learn the story of Jesus and what it means to reflect his love in the world! We meet during the school year from 10 a.m.-10:50 a.m. To protect your children, we’ll be following CDC and MDH COVID-19 guidelines for masking, social distancing and sanitizing so that we can offer an in-person Sunday School for your family. Contact Ann Campbell for more information.

Kid City Online Sunday School

If your family is looking for an online Sunday School option, look no further! Zion Kids Ministries is here to help with an online version of our in-person Kid City Sunday School. We’ll be creating a 5-7 minute video introducing each week’s Bible story and a PDF of family activities and coloring sheets that you can download and print at home. We’ll email these out to you each week. If you don’t have access to a printer, you can request to have copies mailed to you.

To participate, you’ll want to have a Spark Story Bible for your PK-Grade 2 kids and a CEV Children’s Bible for Grade 3-5 kids. These are presented to all children free of charge through our Faith Milestones ministry. You can request copies when you register.
