Youth Ministry Programs

A variety of activities are offered by our Youth Ministry  and a number of adult volunteers. Activities are planned during the entire school year, summer and school holidays.  


Zion’s youth ministry reaches out to individuals that are in sixth grade all the way through twelfth grade. Zion also offer’s Confirmation classes for 6th through 8th graders. Confirmation is held on Wednesday evenings from 5:00pm - 7:00pm each week. Throughout the year there are monthly activities, a servant trip and additional social events.


The youth work on several fund raisers to support a new Servant Trip .  These fund raisers help defray the expenses and earn scholarships for the Servant Trip and other events during the summer, serving others in various locations.  No one is ever excluded from activities due to an inability to pay!



Sunday mornings at 9:15 – 10:30 we will continue to gather in the youth center for discussions and time to reflect on the past week, and what the activity will be this week, and prepare for the service time.


Wednesday evenings, we will continue with gathering for WOW dinner time at 5:00pm, and the confirmation class time will begin at 6:00m – 7:00pm. The class schedule for May is:
