Thanks to Brooke Holub and volunteers for running our virtual Vacation Bible School during the week of June 22-26. On Friday afternoon the group gathered for in-person lessons, music, games and crafts. Pool noodles helped with indoor spacing! The theme was “Make a Splash!”
Wayne Zion would like to congratulate each 2020 high school and college graduate. This year has been one of challenge and loss, affecting you greatly as you end your school careers. We commend your flexibility and tenacity to work through it all, to the final test. Congratulations! May you keep your heart and mind open to God’s plan for your life.
We miss all of our Sunday School students! With such an unexpected and abrupt end to classes this spring, we didn’t get to say goodbye, but hope to see all of the families sometime soon. Our heartfelt thanks to the Sunday School teachers! You stepped up to volunteer at a time when we really needed you last fall, and we appreciate your time and efforts tremendously. Thank you!
Middle School (5th-8th Grade) and High School (9th-12th Grade) Youth Groups start up each year in September. The First Wednesday of the month is Confirmation Faith Formation night from 7-8 pm (after church). The Middle Schoolers meet on the 3rd Sunday of each month from 5 -7 pm for Club 35. The High Schoolers meet before school each Friday morning at Java Jones in Monticello.
There will be many other activities throughout the year for both youth groups. The annual Middle School lock-in at UNI, Bible Camp opportunities at EWALU, various service work opportunities, and ELCA National Youth Gatherings are some examples.
