Return to Youth & Family

Middle 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 will be on May 5 at 3:00 PM in the youth room.  Open to middle and high school youth–bring a friend!




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.

THE AMAZING RACE–Zion and Good Shepherd Lutheran churches will be hosting a joint youth event later this month in a race around town. More details will be released soon–stay tuned!
