Adult Bible Study Opportunities

Sunday mornings from 9:45 a.m. – 10:45 a.m., September - May

 

Zion’s Sunday morning adult bible study class meets in the Patio Room (located right across from Miller Hall where coffee hour is held).  Participants are welcome to bring their coffee or tea along with their bibles, their questions and their opinions!
 

​Third Tuesday of the month - 12:00 noon - 1:00 p.m. (This is a brown bag lunch program)

 

Zion's weekday bible study meets once a month all year long.  We are currently studying women of the bible using discussion points from the book Fierce:  Women of the Bible and Their Stories of Violence, Mercy Bravery, Wisdom, Sex and Salvation by Alice Connor. Participants are welcome to bring their lunch along with their bibles and their curiosity!  (And in case you're wondering, bible stories about women aren't just for women!)

Vacation Bible School

 

Zion hosts a Vacation Bible School (VBS) program each July for kids PK – Grade 6.  (Older students are invited to sign up to serve as volunteer helpers.)   At VBS kids learn about the bible through a themed program that features great music, fun games, engaging crafts, service projects and encouragement to discover God at work in their lives. 

 

Zion’s VBS meets in the evening for one week, Monday through Friday.  Dates vary each year but are announced well in advance in our worship bulletins, on our Facebook page and on the front page of our website.
