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.
Summer Kids’ Camps Announcement

Over the next two weeks you will access activities online. Work at your own pace! Some activities are done as a family and some are for kids to do independently. We will cover four Bible stories over the summer: June 15-26 Jesus Blesses the Children; June 29-July 10 The Parable of the Sower; July 13-24 Do Not Worry; July 27-Aug 7 The Beatitudes.
WHERE: Families participate from home. Many activities can be done outside or on your travels. Each Monday will feature either a new video or an online gathering! If able, we will offer live gatherings (TBD.)
WHY: Because even in challenging times, God promises blessings, if we look for them!
HOW: You will register each participating child, from age 3-Grade 5, who will then receive a tote bag of supplies and instructions for the summer. You will also receive a link to the online files that accompany each activity. There is no cost to register, but you can make an online donation toward the ministry.
