Zion has many different ways to grow your faith. Which will be right for you?

Sunday School

Sunday School Classes are offered year-round for all ages, infants through adults, between the worship services every Sunday from 9:40 am until 10:40 am.  All are welcome.

We are always trying to learn how to live out God’s call to service. Sunday School offerings are collected each year for one of our partners in Christian service.

Parents and children can be “on the same page” by studying the same Bible passages in worship and in most classes.  When families talk about their Christian faith, good things happen.  Sunday School lessons become life lessons, lived out all week long.   

New Beginnings

This course is for all who are…

  • Feeling that God might be calling you to something new; or
  • interested in deepening Christian faith and beliefs; or
  • Considering membership at Zion; or
  • Just curious about Lutheran beliefs and traditions:

Pastor Jim offers the New Beginnings course two or three times a year, as needed. This is a time to get together an talk about our experiences and beliefs, church basics, and what it means to be a Christian in the Lutheran tradition. For some people, this could lead to being baptized or starting or renewing membership at Zion. For others, it may be a “faith refresher,” a form of “adult confirmation,” or a chance to share ideas. There are no obligations or expectations. All are welcome, including family and friends.

Good News & Brews

Adapted from the “Pub Theology” model, Good News & Brews is Zion’s casual, open-to-anybody gathering for conversation and friendship. We talk about all kinds of topics related to God, church, community, and life in general. Food and drink are optional, your choice.

Good News & Brews is currently “on hold” as we get through waves of the pandemic. But we hope to re-start meeting soon!


Seekers is an adult study group that meets Wednesday evenings from September through May. We have used many studies over the years, from Genesis to Revelation; to Science and Creation; to growing older; to how to pray. The group enjoys lively discussion and fellowship.

As a result of studying the book of Acts, the Seekers group felt the call to be active in serving and went on five mission trips as a group. Their 5-day mission trips were to Konnarock, Virginia; Camp Frederick in Rogers, Ohio, two years; and to Camp Mowana in Mansfield two years.

The Seekers members are no longer able to take on a long mission, but still actively support local ministries.
