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 9-12) https://www.elca.org/YouthGathering
, Confirmation Summer Camp for 7th & 8th graders https://www.crossroadsretreat.com/summer-programs/confirmation-camp/
, and fellowship events. Past events have included a corn maze and disc golf. The youth 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 late August.
