Return to Youth & Family

High School

FIRST SUNDAYS–Join us for a time of fellowship, service, faith, and fun!  Come as you are and join in when you can!

First Sundays on April 7 will be at 10:30 AM in conjunction with the bandage rolling service project following worship.

Come hear about the healing promises made during baptism, and help live these promises as we take care of our brothers and sisters in need!


PROGRESSIVE SUPPER AND ESCAPE ROOM–We’re having our monthly progressive supper with a twist! On Sunday, April 28, meet at Zion @ 4:15 PM. We will then be traveling up Main Street to Unravel to see if we can find the hidden treasure in their Midst Adventure escape room! After, we will be traveling to the VanderWeysts for supper. This event is open to middle and high school youth (grades 6-12)—bring a friend!

To be sure we have enough room in the escape room, please let Saundra know by Friday, April 26 if you plan to attend.



SUMMER CAMP REGISTRATION–If you have a 1st grade student or older, it’s time to start thinking about summer options for camp! Lutheran Outdoors in South Dakota offers 3 different locations with options to suit whatever interests you have!

If you are interested in applying for camp, please speak with Saundra as soon as possible so we can get you registered and discuss fundraising options.  There are some scholarship funds  available, as well!

If we have enough kids interested, we will attend the Explorers Camp at NeSoDak August 9-11 as a Zion group. If your 3rd-5th grade child (as of Fall 2024) is interested in going together, please reach out to Pastoral Assistant Saundra.


DRIVE UP DONUTS – On the last Wednesday of the month, donuts and a devotion will be available for pickup at Zion and Good Shepherd Lutheran churches. Simply enter the south parking lot, drive up to the table, and a helper will hand you donuts and a devotion that you can enjoy on your way to school. The next drive up donuts event will be held on Wednesday,  April 24 from 7:30-8:00 AM.

This event is open to all.


9TH GRADE CONFIRMATION MEETING–There will be a 9th grade confirmation meeting on Sunday, April 28 at 11:00 AM in the fellowship hall.
