Sunday Church School
Our Sunday Church School program welcomes children between the ages of 3 years-of-age and 8th grade and helps them come to a greater understanding of the unconditional love God has given us through His son, Jesus Christ. The children learn through a variety of experiences including Bible stories, Bible study, role playing, written activities, as well as craft and mission projects. Classes start at 9:00 A.M. in the Fellowship Hall from September through June.
Phil teaches the 9 to 13-year-olds from the “Manna and Mercy” syllabus (by Daniel Erlander) syllabus that traces the revelation of God’s Word throughout the history described in the Old and New Testaments. A deeper exploration than is typical for this age range.
Confirmation is a two-year period of study and reflection, for 7th and 8th graders, that explores the promises and the life that God gives us in the waters of holy baptism. Confirmation provides an opportunity for discussion, learning and thinking so that we can grow in our relationships with God and one another. During these two years, we learn the content of our faith which is found in the Bible (year 1) and Luther’s Small Catechism (year 2). In addition we learn why faith in God matters in our daily life. Third, we learn what it means to be a Lutheran Christian. Most importantly, though, we want to communicate how the Gospel, God’s good news, makes a difference in our daily lives. Confirmation meets two Monday nights a month from September through May.
Until Zion calls a new pastor, we have suspended Adult Education classes.
