Christian Education for Children
Here at Zion, Sunday School is a weekly opportunity for children ages 3 to 6th grade to learn about the Gospel, the Bible and the faith. Sunday School runs from September through June, 9:45-10:45 am every Sunday morning. Augsburg’s Witness Curriculum builds learners’ understanding of the salvation story with different age-appropriate Bible stories, engaging art, music and activities each week. There are a variety of special events and service projects that are also part of the Sunday School experience:
· Advent and Lenten rotational workshops
· All-School Pentecost and Palm Sunday celebrations
· Rally Day
· Muffins with Mom, Doughnuts with Dad
· Christmas Pageant
· Collections for Heifer International
