Middle School Ministry

Empower, Encourage, and Prepare

The mission of Zion’s Middle School Ministry is to empower, encourage, and prepare youth for a deep life of faith and active engagement in the Body of Christ.

Support and accountability are provided in this partnership, with shared expectations for Sunday worship, Wednesday night learning and small group, and fellowship gatherings. Youth will have the opportunity to explore the Christian faith, ask tough questions, and see what it means to be a part of a faith community as preparation for their Affirmation of Baptism service.

Zion Confirmation

Confirmation is an important milestone in your son or daughter’s faith journey that began at their baptism.  It is our joy to partner with you in helping you fulfill the promises you made at baptism and help your child grow in their relationship with God.

Confirmation is grounded in the basics: weekly worship, worship involvement, weekly learning on Wednesday evenings, faith growth, and community service. In addition, students are expected to attend a retreat in their 6th and 7th-grade years and spend a week at Camp Wapo in June after their 8th-grade year before participating in the Affirmation of Baptism (Confirmation) Service in the fall of their 9th-grade year.

To register for Confirmation, click on the Registration Events tab in the menu at the top of this page.
