Middle School Ministry
We get together every Sunday morning from 9:15-10:15 am for Bible study, and most of our other middle school events are on Friday nights from 7-9 pm (but there are some exceptions!). Here is what we do together in middle school ministry...
CONNECT... and build relationships with other teenagers
One Friday night a month is a CONNECT event. CONNECT events are fun, laid back, and will give you a lot of time with your friends! We do things like messy games, bowling, movie nights, theme nights, mini golf and more. (You can see some pictures from past CONNECT events here.) We hope our CONNECT times will be an easy, non-intimidating way for you to check out youth ministry if you are new or less involved. CONNECT events are also great opportunities to invite your friends from outside Zion along!
LEARN... about who God is and what He has done
LEARN is the time we set aside for Bible study at Zion on Sunday mornings, 9:15-10:15 am. It's a great opportunity for you to learn from God’s Word and explore how it connects to your life today. Currently we are going through a study based on the book of Phillippians. This lesson series will help equip students to serve those around them, helping to meet the spiritual needs of others, while remaining grounded in their own faith by cultivating strong friendships with other believers.
GROW... as a follower of Jesus Christ
GROW groups are a space to build deeper relationships with, be encouraged, and be challenged by same-gender peers and adult mentors from Zion. We hope to have natural, authentic conversations about faith and what it means to live as a follower of Jesus while we have fun together! Our current middle school girls group meets about once a month, as well as our middle school boys group.
IMPACT... our church, city and world in Jesus' name
Once a month we bring middle and high school students together with their FAMILIES to serve others. IMPACT events are a great way to get outside the places we usually go, see some of the needs of people around us, and do something to help in Jesus’ name. We serve locally during the school year (although some projects have a global impact!), and in the summer we have opportunities to travel a bit farther to serve!
*Learn Bible study is every Sunday from 9:15-10:15 am
