Church Mission Statement
“Love God, Love your Neighbor, Nothing else matters.”
Our Vision for Sunday School
The Sunday school program at Zion Lutheran Church is a place for children, youth and adults to hear God’s word, to grow in the knowledge of God's love, to develop a greater understanding about who we are and how God wants us to live and to apply these teachings to become an authentic disciple of Christ.
Together, we will instill in our children, youth and adults, the values present in our faith, through God’s word, prayer, worship, ministry and fellowship. Together, we will build upon the foundation of God’s promises in order to strengthen our families, support our community and come together as children of God. Together we will discover and utilize our gifts as we learn to be authentic Disciples of Christ, so that we recognize faith as an active, and routine part of life; that loving God and loving your neighbor is not just reserved for Sunday mornings, but a lifestyle we choose for ourselves every day.
Sunday school operates from September to May. There are classes available for everyone starting with the three-year old preschooler all the way up to an adult class. Our Sunday school hour runs from 9:30 – 10:30 every Sunday morning.
Preschool- First Grade
We have a preschool classroom serving the three and four year old children. The focus in the classroom is to reinforce basic bible concepts through everyday experiences using crafts, activities, games and song.
Second Grade – 4th Grade
This group meets for a brief ten-minute opening in the sanctuary, which introduces the lesson. The children focus on the bible point for that morning through skits and other forms of teaching. After the opening they move into their classrooms for an additional and meaningful look into the message.
Intermediate (Grades 5-7)
Guided by a recent study that showed the learning differences between girls and boys we have separated this group by gender. 5th- 7th Grade students have been combined. The students begin class in their own room to reinforce the lesson through activities that are relevant to daily situations in their life.
Young Adult (Grades 8-12)
The young adult class meets in the Kitchen and through a curriculum combines current affairs with the weekly scripture readings to initiate conversation and discussion about their faith and how it pertains to their lives.
We have over twenty, qualified, trained and enthusiastic volunteers leading and teaching the children and youth in a program based on the scripture lessons read weekly in our church service. We are a "Safe Sanctuary" church, which means that we have implemented policies and procedures to keep our children and youth as safe as possible.
