The goal of our youth program is to build lifelong, meaningful faith relationships. We want all youth to feel seen, known, loved and valued as children of God. Students in 7th-12th grades are invited to participate in all youth programming.

Activities include an annual beach retreat, mission trips and service opportunities, the ELCA Youth Gathering every three years (grades 8-12),  Confirmation Summer Camp for 7th & 8th graders, and awesome fellowship events. Past events have included fun activities like a corn maze and disc golf; and service opportunities like preparing lunches for Faith Kitchen and collecting canned goods for the nationwide Souper Bowl of Caring. The youth traditionally host the annual Easter Egg Hunt for Zion’s children and often serve as Vacation Bible School volunteers.

The participation form for 2021-22 youth activities will be available in August.
